“I love working alongside and getting to know the students as they learn the art and science of nursing. From the first days in the nursing lab, making beds and taking vital signs, to their last clinical, I feel honored to be a part of students’ educational journey here at TWU.”
Andrea Orr joined the TWU School of Nursing in 2015, after practicing nursing in California for 10 years. She is a proud TWU Alumni, and loves working with students in the same classrooms and labs that she learned in many years ago.
Andrea teaches in a variety of courses and lab settings throughout the program. She has taught N113: Nursing Skill I, N123: Nursing Skills II (Health Assessment), N232: Care of the Adult, and N300: Nursing Therapeutics II. She works closely with the lab coordinator to facilitate simulation-learning experiences for a variety of clinical courses, including teaching and facilitating simulation and lab learning for N213: Clinical Practice: Care of the Older Adult and N343: Clinical Practice: Family Health II.
Passionate about building confidence into undergraduate students, Andrea loves engaging with students in the intersection of their learning, growth, practice and personhood. She focuses her professional development on simulation and lab learning, and has also been involved in curriculum development and evaluation.
