Professor Krystal Seeling came on as Clinical Adjunct Faculty in 2017 after working as a nurse at University of Minnesota Medical Center for 13 years. Her specific areas of expertise include adult medical-surgical and orthopedic nursing, as well as pediatric cardiac and medical-surgical nursing. Her expertise in education is interprofessional education and experiential learning through clinical and simulation nursing.
She has also held the role of preceptor, mentor, Trained Skin Care Champion, and Clinical Instructor for the U of M Masters of Nursing program. Professor Seeling teaches clinical for the Foundations and Advanced courses. She was first involved with the Serving Through Interprofessional Collaboration course as a clinical adjunct, then co-faculty and this year is the course coordinator.
Professor Seeling says, "I hope that my nursing students would always see every patient they encounter as a blessing to care for and as valued, important, and loved because they are God's beloved and carry His image. Because of that, they would care for their patients with a love, mercy, compassion, and kindness that sets them apart from their peers and makes their patients feel valued, important, and loved as they experience the reflection of God's love through our nursing students and alums."
She and her husband Jeff have two children – Emerald and Malachi. Her hobbies include canoeing, kayaking, hiking, camping, swimming, reading, growing flowers, and baking.
