Blind Test Shows AI-Enhanced MRI Scans
If you have ever had an MRI scan before, you’ll know how unsettling the experience can be.

After enjoying a very special working experience at Boston Children’s Hospital, Ms. Manchester had the opportunity to develop and open a new pediatric unit in a MA hospital before moving to California.

She has been nationally certified as a Nurse Practitioner, Oncology Nurse, and Certified Nurse Educator.

Ms. Manchester is committed to student empowerment, equity, equality, social justice, civility, compassion, and collaborative learning with the belief that students will bring those values forward into their nursing practice to support nursing’s future.

Ms. Manchester has been associated with Casa Loma College for more than 10 years in a variety of part-time and full-time roles before joining the expert team in the RN to BSN program.
