Dr. Battley has taught on the undergraduate level, both in the classroom and online, since 2010. He joined the faculty at Loyola University School of Nursing in the summer of 2015 and currently teaches in the DNP and HCSM programs. As a family nurse practitioner, Dr. Battley has worked in neuro surgery both as a first assistant in surgery and a clinician, primary care, free community clinics and the urgent care setting and currently practices in local emergency rooms across the greater New Orleans area. Dr. Battley also has a love for Informatics and is certified as an EPIC superuser providing training to healthcare providers at various healthcare facilities to better enable them to navigate the electronic health record environment. “I have a love for teaching and have embraced my role as faculty on the graduate level. My personal teaching philosophy is rooted in the Betty Neuman System Model nursing theory, viewing students through a holistic lens while understanding the many lines of defense and variables that can impact their learning experience. I understand my role as faculty to function as an educator, facilitator, administrator, and mentor to students by implementing interventions to best enhance students’ learning experiences, as well as prevention measures to diminish the risk of negative influences that can impede the learning process.”
