Dr. Brough is one of the caring faculty with whom I have ever worked. She goes above and beyond for students, devoting many hours towards extra activities that help them learn. They respect her and value her input. She works closely with students not just on their knowledge and technical skills but expects them to exhibit compassion and caring towards their patients. She cares about students and is an advocate for those who may be slower at learning. She uses her own time to help them learn and progress, often at work 12 hours a day every day. She is committed to the students' education and also about getting to know them as a human being. She is wonderful and epitomizes what a nursing faculty member should be.

She will do anything in a pinch, she creates a net of support for all new faculty and she truly LOVES nursing! Libby is transforming students into amazing nurses one by one with a passionate drive that is unique to only her!
