My name is Jenny Roye. I wear many hats here at UTA, one of my favorite being the lead teacher for this course. I still practice as an RN in the Emergency Department at Cook Children's and I feel this is very important as staying current in your practice leads to better instruction. I know this is a short course and the time will fly by, so hang on tight and enjoy the ride! Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or great stories. My inbox is always open!
