2014 Summer Linfield Magazine

Biggest surprise: Being the winner of a raffle in 1986, the prize being one of the first faculty computers on the Portland Campus. Best thing about Linfield: Being a part of a community that cares about students and cares about the kind of nurses we are proud to graduate. Retirement plans: Too many to list here as I’m a person who loves projects. What I’m most excited about is taking vacations where my husband and I can cross country ski and snorkel. Noreen Johansson Professor of nursing, at Linfield since 1983 A memorable moment: The staff at Portland Oregon State Psychiatric Hospital informed me that my clinical group of Linfield nursing students was exceptionally competent and compassionate in delivering nursing care to seriously ill patients. Favorite campus hangout: The Portland Campus photo gallery. Changes in students: Students informed me that their experiences in the Southeast Asia health care travel course were life changing. Several joined the Peace Corps or Indian Health Service. Learned from students and colleagues: I have learned to value different points of view and ways of thinking. Retirement plans: My husband already refers to me as Mrs. Marco Polo. I intend to be a happy rambler in my retirement!
