Member Spotlight

Dr. Laura Crouch has been a faculty member at Northern Arizona University, School of Nursing (SON), for several years.  She has a Doctor of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction, with a focus on educational technology, and simulation.  She continues to maintain and meet the requirements for Certified PostAnesthesia Nurse (CPAN), and Certified Nurse Educator (CNE).  During this time she has been actively involved in baccalaureate nursing education as a clinical instructor, didactic lecturer, coordinator of traditional senior preceptored clinical experiences, and the RN-BSN senior practicum.  In the SON, and as the Regional Disaster Health Services Advisor for the Arizona American Red Cross (ARC), she has remained actively involved in high fidelity, and standardized simulation development and implementation.  It may be surprising to know that the ARC provides training through simulated disaster drills on a regular basis.

In the School of Nursing, Laura has promoted the foundational philosophy of Northern Arizona University senior capstone programs.  The senior capstone courses portray the culminating work in the students’ program of study.  Promoting the Evidence Based Practice process is an important objective in Laura’s nursing educational endeavors.  

In addition to pursuing her nursing career, Laura has enjoyed living in Arizona for over 30 years.  With her husband, she is an avid hiker, and enjoys the beauty of Arizona.  She has 2 grown children and 4 grandchildren.  Feel free to contact her at to discuss simulation experiences, and the benefits of volunteering for the American Red Cross.
