Nel Coloma Moya
As a former nurse with twenty years of experience Nel decided to pursue higher education to satisfy her passion for learning. She went on to develop Modular Education and Learning (MEL) Nursing Review to help nurses understand the current culture and their future within the healthcare industry. MEL Nursing Review is a product of Nel’s entrepreneurship and knowledge in adult education that aims to prepare nurses who are adaptable, critical thinkers and exhibit leadership qualities. Her insight into learning has created innovative technologies for the NCLEX and a new age approach to exam preparation.
