Professor Sandra Whitesell’s career is founded on a strong foundation in medical-surgical nursing and nursing education, with specific focuses in staff development and direct patient care. She received her BSN from Southwestern College and went on to receive her MSN from Gonzaga University. Her passion is in integrating her faith in Jesus Christ to create Kingdom nurses.
Outside of the classroom, Whitesell enjoys gardening, hiking, camping, and fishing; she is married with two children, and she and her husband have three dogs and one cat.
“The best part of my job at OKWU is the freedom to speak freely about Jesus Christ and to worship and pray with my peers and students. I also appreciate the spiritual growth opportunities at the university and the dedicated, professional leadership in all milieus here.”
