Dr. Mastrian has been involved in the education of non-traditional aged students for over 36 years in the RN to BS nursing program. She pioneered the use of Credit by Portfolio Assessment to award advanced standing nursing credit for registered nurses. She has also been active in the development of technology-enhanced courses for registered nurses facilitating asynchronous participation and active and collaborative learning. 

She is one of the founding proposers to place the RN to BS program online for the Penn State’s World Campus, has developed six of the courses for that curriculum, and teaches at least one section per semester for the World Campus program. 

Her non-nursing interests include golf, yoga, snowshoeing, reading, and traveling. She is also a therapeutic drum circle facilitator. She regularly conducts drum circles at the local Senior Center.
