Sherri Post began teaching health care at Southeast Tech in 2010. Since then she has added roles such as advising the healthcare leadership students and coordinating the certified nursing assistant classes. In the past, Sherri has worked as a nurse in long term care in many different roles. She was Director of Nursing (DNS) for five years with 100 plus employees to supervise and manage. Her long term care center had 94 beds and included a rehabilitation unit, Alzheimer's unit and general long term care. Prior to working as DNS, She was a case manager and a charge nurse.
She has really enjoyed working with the different health care disciplines. Just because a person is interested in healthcare doesn't mean they just have to be a nurse as each healthcare discipline takes on its own unique role. Sherri believes it takes a highly diversified, skilled team to effectively care for each individual patient.
She is currently working on her doctoral degree from University of South Dakota in Educational Administration in Higher Education. She is passionate about the various aspects of healthcare and leadership. She truly enjoys mentoring students as they devise their own personal educational journey.
Lifelong learning isn't for everyone, but she wants students to have the ability to continue their education if life leads them in that direction. Sherri enjoys teaching online, traditional and hybrid classes. She believes students should collaborate and work together in the learning process. She uses dynamic interactive lectures and group activities to involve students. Learning doesn’t have to be mundane or boring as education can most definitely be entertaining and engaging.
