Dr. Culleiton has manuscripts published in both educational and clinical journals. Her most recent book publication, NCLEX-PN: Power Practice, offers the comprehensive preparation needed to pass the NCLEX-PN. Consistent with her practice doctorate, Dr. Culleiton has also authored and co-authored several Continuing Education (CE) Courses for a nationally accredited provider of continuing education for nurses and practicing clinicians at a variety of educational levels.
Dr. Culleiton received her BSN from The Catholic University of America, her MSN in nursing administration and nursing education from the Indiana State University of Pennsylvania, and her DNP from Chatham University.
