Valerie Kane, RN, founded Kane Educational Seminars to help nurses re-enter the nursing field and get back to work. Her extensive nursing background spans 40 years of practice. She is a former college nursing instructor, and a provider of continuing educational programs for her nurses since the early 1980's. Her experience includes hospital nursing, nursing homes, home care, clinical office settings and expert testimony in the nursing field. She taught clinical nursing skills at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut.
In 1981 she founded a nursing agency in Orlando, FL "Nurse World" and remained in that position for nearly 25 years. During that time, she became familiar with the severe nursing shortage in Florida and resolved to do something about it. She wrote the curriculum for the first RN/LPN Refresher class in the late 1980’s which created an unexpected benefit. “Many of my students became my best nurses in the field,” states Valerie. She would utilize her new graduates for private duty shifts, home health visits, Hospice, and for staff relief in select long term care facilities.
Lori Rhodes has been an RN since 1987. Prior to becoming a nurse Lori was a Certified Medical Assistant.

She managed a wound care center and hyperbaric clinic. She is currently a CWCN with her Master’s degree in Community Health. Lori lectures extensively and enjoys teaching the Wound Care Specialist class offered by KANE EDUCATIONAL SEMINARS.
