Heather Teller is a Virginia-based nurse educator and acute care facility staff development coordinator. For the past eight years, she has worked on the subject of delirium as part of an interdisciplinary team at Riverside Health System.

After becoming a licensed RN, becoming a certified medical surgical nurse, and earning her BSN from Old Dominion University, she blended the skills and knowledge obtained as a teacher with her love of nursing and desire to train nursing staff, becoming a nurse educator.
