Carrie Dameron is Director of the Registered Nursing Program and has been a full-time nursing instructor in Medical/Surgical Nursing since 2002. She has been a Registered Nurse since 1992, where she worked in medical/surgical /telemetry unit. Even though, med/surg is her specialty, Carrie worked in home health hospice for 5 years and enjoyed caring for patients and their families during this difficult time in their lives. Carrie has ANA Certification in Med/Surg Nursing and Certified Nurse Educator certification from National League of Nursing.
Carrie, an expert educator and scholar in spiritual care, has collaborated with Dr. Tove Giske, Norway and Dr. Amy Rex Smith, USA with contributors from Singapore and Colombia to create a "train-the-trainer manual and presentation" entitled Art & Science of Spiritual Care. The educational program was developed to provide practicing nurses with state of the science knowledge in the specialty of spiritual care. The purpose is to equip international Christian nurses to identify and address spiritual care needs in a variety of settings for any patient coming from various religious/spiritual belief and backgrounds, or even no faith tradition at all. The workshop is sponsored through Nurses Christian Fellowship International (NCFI). In addition to teaching in the USA, Carrie has taught the program in Manila & Tagaytay, Philippines; Santiago, Chile, Taipei, Taiwan, with plans for Haiti in January 2019.
