Background

Teresa attended the Universidad Austral for her Bachelor of Science and subsequently attended the University of Pennsylvania for her Master of Science in Nursing-Pediatric Acute Care.

Teresa started her nursing career at the Hospital Universitario Austral, Provincia de Buenos Aires, Argentina. She worked in a 12-bed combined Pediatric Critical Care and Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. She quickly began the clinical expert and preceptor role for all new hires. With her interest of improving quality, she led a project to implement Delirium protocol in the PICU environment.

In addition, she held an academic position at the Universidad Austral as a Teaching Assistant in a nursing research course and a clinical instructor for students in an ICU setting. She has two publications thus far: “Ultrasonography: an alternative lung assessment tool” and “Basic Life Support: Are parents ready for it?” As follow up to this publication, she was asked to give a podium presentation at the 8th Argentine Pediatric Emergency and Critical Care Congress in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2017.
