About the Guest

Brittany Roberts is currently a professor in a BSN program. After graduating from JMU with her BSN, she worked on a step-down unit for a few years before going into the ICU realm. She has worked in a coronary care unit, cardiac cath lab, and Cardiac Surgery ICU. During the pandemic, the CSICU doubled as a COVID-ICU as well.

While working at the bedside, she discovered a love of teaching both new grad nurses and students. She pursued an MSN in Nursing Education from Duke University so she could further explore this passion for education and help usher in the next generation of nurses.
