K. Bridget Marshall, DNP, earned her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Colorado, Denver and went on to earn her Doctorate of Nursing Practice from the University of Utah. Marshall brings many years of experience to the teaching arena, developing the pediatric component of the Master's to DNP curriculum for family nurse practitioners.
Marshall has been a certified pediatric nurse practitioner since 1996, and arrived at CMU after 10 years of providing primary care to infants, children and adolescents at the Idaho Shoshone Bannock Indian Reservation. Her other arenas of clinical practice have included examination of children who were alleged victims of sexual abuse, serving as a health care provider in family planning clinics and private practice.
In addition to primary care, Marshall was an instructor and pediatric preceptor for FNP students at Idaho State University in a multidisciplinary course on children with special needs. She has special interests in prevention and treatment of childhood obesity, evaluation and services to children with special needs as well as expanding the cyber-pedagogy components of online teaching.
Marshall's teaching philosophy is to use multiple modalities to engage students' different learning styles. She uses voiceover software as well as multimedia methods. She employs case studies when appropriate. Marshall believes that learning is a shared environment that begins at the level of each individual and ultimately should demonstrate progress throughout the course.
