Tammy Pleasant


Tammy Pleasant taught in the North Carolina Community College system for 22 years, with a focus on medical-surgical nursing and psychiatric mental health nursing. During her tenure, she was involved in many curriculum changes, including the development and implementation of the North Carolina ADN statewide concept-based curriculum.

"As a nurse I practiced conceptually, so it just made so much sense to me that we should be teaching our students this way," said Pleasant.

Since joining Elsevier's team, Pleasant says conceptual learning has become her passion. She loves working with others who are thinking about a concept-based curriculum or conceptual teaching, and integrating Elsevier's digital products into this process.
