Dr. Lori Goodstone joined the College faculty in 2008. The Selection Committee said of her: "Lori considers her role of teacher as an extension of her nursing practice. She clearly values the human experience and treats her patients as if they were her own family. It is with this guiding philosophy and belief that she teaches her students the principles of nursing."

A former student explained: "Dr. Goodstone is an incredible instructor; she is incredibly knowledgeable and continuously pushes us to go the extra mile. I wish I could have her for the rest of the required nursing classes."
