What your classmates think

Outstanding Presenter.

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. - Dr Glenn
