Nita joined the Elon’s School of Health Sciences staff in August 2012 as the Client and Standardized Patient Coordinator for both the Physician Assistant Studies and Physical Therapy Education Departments. In her role as program coordinator, she serves as chair of the Client and Standardized Patient Committee, and aspires to bridge the Alamance County community with Elon’s School of Health Sciences programs. Nita wants nothing more than for students of the each program to have realistic simulated medical experiences in a safe and controlled environment that will better prepare them for their clinical rotations.
