Shuster, George Associate Professor Emeritus


Faculty at the University of New Mexico since 1991; previously at the University of Virginia.  Graduate of the University of California: San Francisco PhD program. 

As somebody with past clinical practice experience in home health and hospice; I am familiar with healthcare and pain issues for people living in the community.  I have also completed and published in the area of health promotion and I’m presently involved in a meditation and its impact on health among elderly living in the community.

My interest in distance education comes from serving as PI on a federal grant and because  I have taught multiple web based courses for undergraduate, masters, and PhD nursing students involving both didactic and clinical components over the past 12 years. I also have several years’ experience teaching via interactive television.   As a result I am familiar with distance education strengths, needs and  in solving barrier issues.
