She obtained her Associate Degree of Nursing at Garden City Community College and went on to obtain her Bachelors of Science in Nursing at Kansas Neuman University.  After woring in ICU and as a nursing instructor, she completed her Nurse Practitioner requirements at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Robin views nursing as a way to help others, but als help herself.  Nursing is an ever learning profession. Not just book learning, but primarily what we learn from our patients.
