Since joining the PCC’s nursing faculty in 2011, Miss Hartkopf has taught a variety of nursing classes while giving hands-on clinical instruction in medical-surgical, psychiatric, and critical care at local hospitals. Miss Hartkopf now serves as chair of PCC’s nursing department, a role which allows her to provide support to students and faculty as she oversees the nursing program curriculum.
Miss Hartkopf views nursing as a ministry. Traveling on medical missions trips and serving as a camp nurse have given her many opportunities to use nursing to reach people for Christ. As she shares her nursing experiences, she desires to inspire her students to become the excellent nurses God has called them to be.
