Mrs. Karen Brown

I have been a Registered Nurse (RN) for over 20 years.  Prior to getting my RN license, I was a licensed Vocational Nurse and Certified Nursing Assistant.  I had the privilege of working with medically fragile infants and children for many of those years.  During this time,  I also worked as a part time nursing  instructor.  The desire to learn and advance in my career never left me.  I decided to go back to school to obtain my Master of Science in Nursing with a focus in Education.  This was ambitious to say the least.  As a mother of 4, it was one of my most challenging endeavors.  In 2014 I became the Director of the Nursing Assistant and Home Health Aide program at the local community college.  

I moved from Northern California to Tucson in 2019 and absolutely love it here. I am very excited to be teaching at IRHS.  This is a unique opportunity for me and all the students.  I look forward to developing this program and watching the students grow.
