Peggy Hancock, B.N. (Memorial), M.N. (Athabasca)
Nurse Educator – Nursing
My main area of clinical interest is in perinatal nursing, specifically obstetrics and labor and delivery. I also have experience in pediatrics, medicine, gerontology, and telehealth nursing.
I have a passion for learner-centered teaching and promoting the importance of lifelong learning. My current classroom teaching assignment involves teaching pathophysiology to second year BN students. I hold clinical teaching and course leadership assignments in gerontology, community health nursing, and obstetrics. I aim to create relevant learning opportunities through use of interactive case studies, innovative presentations, and medium and high fidelity simulation.
I am a member of a variety of committees at WRSON (Executive), Grenfell Campus (Teaching, and I Love Grenfell Committees). I am a Faculty Associate of the Centre for Collaborative Health Professional Education at Memorial University. I serve as faculty liaison for the WRSON Nursing Society and faculty organizer for the annual Teddy Bear Clinic.
