Sherrie Rubio-Wallace, RN, MS, FNP
Title: Associate Lecturer
Sherrie is no stranger to our faculty. After a year's absence she returns to the undergraduate program, where she will be teaching in both theory and clinical courses related to public health, health promotion, and assessment.
Sherrie has taught courses in family and community health in the undergraduate nursing program at University of Wyoming since 2001. During the past year, she was the Nurse Consultant for the Wyoming Health Council, and worked with family planning clinics in Wyoming. It was the love of teaching that drew her back. “I enjoyed working with clinics and clinicians across the state, and being part of a large network that provides reproductive health care to so many underserved clients. But I missed teaching, and missed the students,” she states. She was also a participant in the Wyoming Nurse Leadership Institute during that time. “It was a great experience to work with nurses from all over the state, from all areas of nursing, who are working to improve nursing and patient care.”
Sherrie’s past experience in nursing includes work in intensive care, home health, and public health. Her current faculty clinical practice is in reproductive health and family planning. She earned her BSN from Villanova University, her MS in Nursing from University of Wyoming’s Family Nurse Practitioner program, and a post-masters certificate in nursing education from UW as well. She is currently a doctoral student in the College of Education. Her research interests include curriculum and instructional design, and community-based clinical education in nursing education.
