Outstanding Presenter.
By Dr Glenn G. on 29. June 2018 for Sensory/Perceptual Alterations (Nursing)

Diana Shenefield is terrific. She engages the viewer with her enthusiasm, her passion for the subject matter and her knowledge of the topic. While I'm a physician and not a nurse, patient care topics are vitally important for all healthcare practitioners. Diana's lectures are appropriate for any audience relating to patient care.
