In addition to teaching, Dr. Nagle is a practicing physical therapist at The Spine & Sports Health Center. Her specialty area is outpatient orthopedics with a manual based approach and concussions. Her thirst for knowledge is forever growing, as she regularly participates in continuing education courses. As a clinician, besides treating she has mentored Rutgers University Students for their internship in Exercise Science, and served as a Clinical Instructor for students from the Rutgers Newark and Kean Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) Programs. She feels that as a practicing clinician she offers a unique facet by providing the students with insight into the practical application of their coursework in the professional field.
