One student wrote the following about Caron “Professor Martin has a wealth of knowledge and is great at breaking difficult concepts down when teaching. She is also caring and willing to take time to explain information to students. If I was on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and the question was nursing related, I would phone Professor Martin every time. I have learned so much in the courses I have taken with Professor Martin, and I am thankful to have her as a professor. Professor Martin is a role model as a practicing RN and in nursing education, I aspire to be like her one day. Another student wrote the following: “Caron always demonstrates understanding, calming demeanors and has a true dedication and care for her students. She always takes time to answer questions and always says There is never a dumb question. I am so thankful to have her as a professor and for her kind and gentle spirit. Congratulations Professor Martin for being selected as the recipient of the DAISY Faculty Award.
