Lori Przymusinski

Vice Chancellor for Student Services
Oakland Community College

I wish to assist new clinical educators as they transition from hospital care to the responsibility for novice student nurses. As a nurse for over 30 years I concluded my career teaching students. My bedside knowledge transferred to my teaching. Our publication assists new educators to moving into the role with tips from our experiences. As a former clinical faculty and lecturer, and Dean I am aware that preparation is of key importance. I welcome emails to mentor interested professionals!


Lori Przymusinski, MSN, RN a nurse for 35 years, focused her career on the care of adult medical surgical, hemodialysis and emergency room patients primarily in a large teaching health system in Southeastern Michigan, USA for 22 years.  She subsequently became an adjunct, later full-time nursing faculty member, at Oakland Community College in Waterford, Michigan in 2006. She was a  lecturer and led students through their clinical experiences for 12 years during their fundamentals, orthopedic, neurology and capstone leadership courses. She served as the Dean and Associate Dean of Nursing and Health Professions for four years at the same college guiding the program’s eight-year re-accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) in 2014.
