What you need to know about NSLC

The New Standard Learning Center was designed by a nurse who wanted to change the way we treat each other, our patients, and our lives.

I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart. All of these elements brought me to start The New Standard Learning Center. Ever since I launched this project, the blog has been thriving and has quickly gained a loyal following. To see what I’ve been up to, browse my site, learn about my passions, and explore what excites and interests you as well.
