Brigette Quinn is a clinical instructor in the RN-MS program. Her nursing career began as a volunteer, a care aide, a licensed practical nurse (LPN) and then a registered nurse (RN) in order to meet the challenges of critical care and emergency nursing. She loves the challenge of providing the best evidence-based and innovative health care possible.
Her professional background is in critical care and emergency nursing and clinical informatics, with experience as a nurse manager and hospital supervisor. Her passion for clinical informatics began as a critical care travel nurse using many different electronic medical records in the United States and Canada, where she saw that some enhanced workflow and patient safety more than others. She became fascinated with the user experience and transferred this interest to her work as an informatics educator and expert user.
As a nurse leader, Ms. Quinn enjoys resolving clinical challenges and collaborating with nurses who see more bridges than barriers. She is motivated by the fact that we will all be patients someday, and therefore she dedicates herself to advocating for patient-centered health care as a clinician and nurse educator. She believes the capacity to creatively share health and illness information for collaboration and patient empowerment is an exciting opportunity to build a healthier world.
