John Wood, MSN

Assistant Professor of Nursing

Teaching nurses is what I truly love to do. Whether it is the fundamentals of nursing care, or advanced topics of critical care, what excites me and recharges my batteries is seeing the light bulbs light up in my students. Since instructing my first CPR class for the American Red Cross at the age of 16, my passion in teaching healthcare professionals continues to grow. 

When I’m not teaching, my time is occupied with family, home and pets. My wife and I love to travel together. We enjoy music, films, books and theatre. We have two grown children, both in college. I have been called a “Master of Esoteric Knowledge” by some of my friends and have yet to receive a call from Alex Trebek. 

I am currently enrolled at A.T. Still University in pursuit of a Doctorate in Healthcare Education.

Alex, seriously, if you are reading this, I would love to be on Jeopardy!
