As house coordinator, Landers usually works nights and weekends, serving as the highest official on duty, responsible for ensuring the continuity of patient care services. Serving as house coordinator has provided Stephanie with the opportunity to share her skills and knowledge throughout the hospital and her passion for teaching.

Landers teaches a variety of classes such as advanced cardiac life support and pediatric advanced life support.

“Stephanie has an amazing gift of teaching. She does not turn the classroom lights off until each student is completely confident in their skills,” said NHCH President Cindy Kamikawa. “This confidence that she brings out in her students can make a difference for our patients, especially in emergency situations.”
