Ms. Sharon Sutherland
Nursing Instructor


"No matter how bad things are, there is always someone worst off than you." — Sharon Sutherland


I was born in Elko and raised in Carlin, NV. I spent my summers at Wildhorse Resorvoir. I have been a nurse for 30 years and am presently working per diem for the Emergency Room. I started working at GBC as a Skills Lab Instructor for Nursing in 2004. After receiving my MSN degree, I became a full time nursing instructor at GBC. My favorite part of teaching is working with my computerized manikin.
