About Karin C. Ulltjaern, DNP
"Education is for improving lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it" (Marlan Wright Edelman)
I am passionate about teaching and advocating for whole person care, where we not only care for the patient's physical needs but also mental and spiritual needs. During my career, I have worked as a social worker, RN in post-acute rehabilitation and inpatient psychiatric care and am now a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. I strive for excellence in teaching and to instill in the students a desire for practicing compassionate, holistic, care where they show the love of Jesus with each person they encounter.
