In 2018 Tammy Chapin began teaching at Marian, where she also earned a Bachelor’s in Nursing (1991) and a Master’s degree in Nursing Education (2004). She earned her Doctor of Philosophy in Education with a Specialization in Nursing Education from Capella University in early 2018, and her dissertation and research interests focus on learning and studying approaches of nursing students, as well as teaching strategies to combat academic entitlement in higher education. Now serving as an Assistant Professor and as the Nurse Learning Specialist, she has also taught undergraduate nursing in the areas of pharmacology, medical/surgical, and accelerated nursing courses at UW-Oshkosh for more than 12 years and nearly three years at Concordia University-Mequon, including development of numerous courses for face-to-face and online nursing programs. Her career as an educator has led her expertise to be in tutoring all levels of nursing students for academic success, using studying and learning strategies specific to learners’ needs and adult learning theories. Along with teaching for 16 years, she has been an ICU nurse for 25 years, bringing real-life experiences to her classroom.
