About the Author:

Marilyn Smith-Stoner, PhD, RN-BS, CNE, has been a nurse for more than 30 years. She began her career as a nurse in an associate degree program in Southern California. Her road to a doctorate took 20 years. She worked full time in many leadership positions during the entire time she was receiving her education. She benefited from many nontraditional programs aimed at ensuring that nurses who wanted to advance their education were able to so. Some of those programs included the consortium in the state of California university system , and an online doctoral program at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, California. When the Internet was new, Dr. Stoner participated in one of the original online doctoral programs. In an era of dial-up modems and dot-matrix printers, she became an expert in educational technology while developing a program of scholarship and end-of-life care.

Dr. Smith-Stoner has more than 30 publications on end-of-life care, international travel, and many forms of technology. She has been a mentor to graduate students for more than 10 years. In her role as a volunteer nurse scientist, she has also assisted numerous students and clinicians in being published for the first time. This text is another in a series of guides that Dr. Smith-Stoner has created to advance nursing education and improve the care of patients everywhere.
