Why I Teach at SPU

April Morgenroth, Assistant Professor of Nursing

“As a little girl growing up, I wanted to be a teacher, a chaplain, a scientist, an explorer, and a nurse; at SPU, I can ‘be’ all five. I feel a deep calling to be a ‘nurse for nurses.’ As a member of the faculty at Seattle Pacific University, I have the honor and privilege to engage in the sacred work of caring for and preparing the next generation of nurses to be the hands and feet of Jesus in a very practical way.”
