In 2014, Warren led a group of home health professionals to northern India to observe aging, family caregiving, and end-of-life care in Tibetan Buddhist communities.

“When I entered Loyola to pursue a BSN at age 51, classmates, faculty, and staff of the School of Nursing all provided a challenging, yet safe space for this older adult learner. Serving as an Assistant Professor at Loyola provides an opportunity to sustain and build upon Loyola’s legacy of support and success for the nursing students I teach and advise.”

Dr. Hebert’s favorite educational philosophy is the Groome Method, an educational theory he learned of in pastoral ministry. Dr. Hebert writes, “Boston College’s Thomas Groome’s approach to adult education recognizes the adult learner comes to formal education with a wealth life experience and expertise. The Groome method honors and draws from a student’s knowledge as adult learners build upon their existing foundation. This approach lends itself to graduate nursing education. We are all one another’s teachers.”
