EKG instructor Salter School of Nursing and Allied HealthKen Noel, EKG Instructor in the Patient Care Technician Program

Ken grew up in Springfield, MA, and attended Northern Essex Community College. Also trained as a paramedic, he has been an instructor at Salter Nursing for little over 3 years, teaching primarily EKG (“but I can teach them all,” he says “except LNA classes”).

What did you want to be when you were a kid?  
I really didn’t know what I wanted to be. I kind of fell into being a paramedic. I just knew I didn’t want to spend many years in college to prepare for a career.

What was the last movie you went to?   
I haven’t been to a movie in 20 years. I refuse to pay those prices!

What is your favorite restaurant? 
I eat anything—seriously. Whatever is in front of me.

What is your perfect Sunday?  
I don’t know what a “perfect Sunday” is, because I’m always working rotating weekends. Sundays don’t exist for me. Maybe my perfect Sunday would be for me to actually have a day off?

If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go? 
Alaska

What is one thing on your bucket list?  
After being a paramedic—including being shot at and stabbed—what is there left to experience?

What’s your secret talent that nobody knows about?   
I love to cook!

What do you like about teaching at Salter Nursing?   
I enjoy the students, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge, so my students can use that knowledge to make their patients better.
