Prior to earning her master's degree, Professor Gall had a 14-year career in Critical Care Nursing, specializing in Cardiovascular Intensive Care (CVIC). While working in CVIC, she served as Unit Supervisor for two years and Unit Educator for seven years. She continues to work in a CVIC unit part-time and maintain her credentials as an Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) specialist. By staying in a clinical role, she is able to bring real-time, evidence-based practice directly from the bedside to the classroom. Professor Gall currently teaches the senior-level Advanced Acute Care class and Healthy Populations lab and instruct clinicals in the Medical/Surgical, Community, and Acute Care setting. Her research interests include addressing the opioid and IV drug use epidemic as it relates to infective endocarditis and valve disease as well as incorporating high-fidelity simulation into the lecture and classroom setting.
