Nursing Chemistry

 

Dr. Maxwell currently teaches two sections of the Chemistry for the Health Professions class with about 240 students enrolled each fall semester.  Dr. Maxwell wrote a 340 page lab manual used in her course.  The class is extremely interactive in both lecture and lab students.   Dr. Maxwell’s middle name is “Happy to Help”.  Dr. Maxwell published a paper about teaching NMR spectroscopy in the Journal of Chemical Education in 2012.
