About Us

Star Canyon School of Nursing was founded in 2007 by Michael Ayodele, Ed. D and Regina Ayodele, RN, with the mission of improving basic patient care training in the Valley. We aim to promote diversity, skilled hands-on care, body-mechanics proficiency, client privacy, and client dignity during care. From our earliest beginnings, we have placed a special focus on the patient perspective in emphasizing that students should not only posess technical skill and knowledge but also understand perspectives different from their own. We pride ourselves on our rigorous hands-on skills training, which focuses on body mechanics, high-risk transfers, and preserving privacy/dignity. Our open lab operates nearly round-the-clock and has been often used for State testing. We allow our students to schedule lab practice 6 days a week.

Additional staff include:
Jeannie Meyer, RN
Puna Thakur, MSN
Theodora Roiland, MSN
Elizabeth Ayodele, JD
David Ayodele, Webmaster
Joseph Ayodele, LPN
Karla Garrison, RN
Fortisha Morrison, RN

SCSN graduates have historically achieved a well above average pass rate on their board exams and come back frequently to utilize the lab and share their perspectives and insights on the profession. We are always glad to see/hear from alums.
