comics artist, nurse, academic
I am a nurse who uses comics to contemplate the complexities of illness & caregiving. I am a hospice nurse, comics artist, and the artist-in-residence at Northwestern Medical School. I am also a guest cartoonist for the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation. With Dr. Ian Williams I co-curate GraphicMedicine.org and am a co-author of the Eisner-nominated Graphic Medicine Manifesto (Penn State University Press, 2015). My first graphic memoir will be published in March 2017 by Penn State and titled, "Taking Turns: Stories from HIV/AIDS Care Unit 371."
Courtney - thanks for reaching out. This is a terrific idea and I think with more detail can have great impact on remote learning. So I'd love to give any feedback I can during this process. My limitation is that I do not have access to students or clients with which to test prototypes.
Using the Georgetown NP program as an example, what kinds of things do you envision being in the kits? Or less concrete, perhaps what is an example of a skill learning that would utilize one of these kits? Or would you need input on that as well?
