Annette Coates, M.S.N., RN, CPNP-PC, PCNS-BC

Clinical Associate Professor of Nursing


Full time faculty in the College of Nursing, primarily teaching Pediatric Nursing on the Westville campus along with other nursing courses across the curriculum.

I love pediatrics because even after all the children go through, they just want to play and have fun. I used to think it's the most rewarding thing I could ever do. But, sharing my knowledge and experiences with future RNs is even better. I had a professor that said by teaching, she touched thousands of lives. I would like to think I do the same.
