Andrea Corbisello MSN, RN

Assistant Professor

I am currently oversee the Clinical Performance and Simulation Lab at Kent State University Salem. The lab provides a safe and supportive environment for students to learn and master nursing skills. I graduated from Kent State University with my BSN in 1997. After graduation, I worked at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in various areas including gynecology and urology surgical patients and cardiology. I became an Emergency Room nurse in 2001 at Salem Community Hospital in Salem, Ohio. During this time I became competent in caring for patients across the life-span, aging from pediatrics to geriatrics, with various illnesses and traumas. Most recently, I served as the Education Coordinator for Emergency Services for Akron Children's Hospital of the Mahoning Valley. While at Akron Children's I presented on various topics including: caring for patients of physical and sexual abuse, disaster preparedness, nursing professionalism, Ohio Nurse Practice Act, evaluation methods and test construction, and the preceptor development program. I am an instructor for various American Heart Association courses including, Advance Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advance Life Support (PALS), and Basic Life Support (BLS). I completed my Masters of Science in Nursing with a focus as an Education Specialist at The Franciscan University of Steubenville in Steubenville, Ohio in 2009. I enjoy working with the nursing students and watching them grow into the professional nurses that Kent State University Salem produces. Feel free to stop in the lab if you have any questions for me.
