Dr. Bensinger is a family nurse practitioner (FNP) with a focus in women's health. Her doctor of nursing practice (DNP) focused on vulvovaginal diseases and female cancers. She has experience working as a FNP in a private obstetrics and gynecology practice.
She serves as course coordinator of NSG 403/603 Health Assessment and teaches in the NSG413/513 Maternal Child course. She supervises students in the clinical settings for Introduction into Professional Practice, Adult Health and Maternal Child. Her teaching philosophy is based on the Socratic Method-to teach the students to go above the simple task of memorizing facts to the analysis and application of the theory.
She has served as Membership Ambassador, Successions Committee Member, and currently serving as Vice President of the Beta Theta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society. She is also a member of the International Simulation in Healthcare Society, the American Society of Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology, and different genealogical societies. She chairs the CON Bylaws committee and represents the CON on the UTHSC Faculty Senate Committee.
In addition to her teaching and practice responsibilities, she developed a curriculum building game, "Ponder™ The Socratic Way" (formerly call "What Would Socrates Think?") that presents students with an almost infinite number of patient scenarios and problems that must be solved in a competitive but non-threatening manner.
