Professor Skoglund began working at Northwestern in 2017. Of her personal teaching philosophy she says, “I love teaching students to be nurses, but most importantly to integrate their faith into their practice of nursing. I want students to really learn to care for all people and to give them a desire for life-long learning as there are continuous changes in healthcare.”
Professor Skoglund believes nursing is a calling and it is a privilege to care for people when they are most vulnerable. She loves having the opportunity to help people physically, mentally, culturally, and spiritually and wants students to experience the joy of serving God to serve with this calling.
Professor Skoglund has led two student teams to Ukraine to work alongside a team from Joni and Friends where they serve people with developmental disabilities. God prepared her for this experience by having sent her to Ukraine for three years of summer church ministry when she was younger.
Professor Skoglund’s husband Derrick is a pastor and they serve together in Israel and study the Bible focusing on Torah and Jewish context. She loves spending time with their three adult children, reading, shopping, worship music, and traveling.
