Reasons why you are teaching at Linfield
The core mission of Linfield College to connect learning, life and community resonates with my beliefs about professional nursing, and I feel lucky to work in an environment that embraces diversity and strives toward cultural competence. There are several initiatives happening at the Linfield - Good Samaritan School of Nursing that reflect the mission and values of the college. In essence I have stayed at Linfield because I am passionate about teaching nursing, and I have found my home here with the dynamic, creative, and committed faculty and staff on the Portland campus.
