Diane Yeager RN worked as a nurse in Labor & Delivery and Intensive Care for 7 years until 1992 at which point her career shifted to education. For the next 15 years, Diane worked as a Nursing Instructor in Northeast Ohio. Her results were impressive with an NCLEX pass rate for her graduating students of 97% throughout her teaching career. Her impact as a teacher was recognized when, during her fifth year of teaching, she received the Ohio Organization of Practical Nurse Educators' award for Distinguished Practical Nurse Educator of 1996.
Diane's success as an educator was due to her enthusiasm for integrating computer technology into her teaching methodology which led to the creation of FreeNurseTutor, launched in 2006. Freenursetutor.com is a unique and completely free website that lets educators and students use a collection of self-paced and learning activities with a focus on interactivity and individualized learning. FreeNurseTutor is now used as an educational supplement by healthcare instructors and students at hundreds of schools.
In 2007, Diane followed the trends in healthcare technology and transitioned to a career as an Electronic Health Records trainer. Diane has developed curriculum and instructional materials and trained healthcare personnel during large scale EHR system implementations at major hospital systems.
As an EHR trainer, and through continued contact with healthcare educators, it became clear to Diane that most career tech and nursing schools simply do not have a way to prepare their students for the new world of electronic records. She enthusiastically embraced this as a personal challenge and used her experience in education and electronic health records to create an academic EHR system: EHR Tutor. EHR Tutor is designed to immediately deliver the "missing piece" of electronic records to any school's program. More information regarding EHR Tutor can be found at ehrtutor.com.
It's good to talk.
