Mary Ealine Nelsen B.S.N., J.D.

St Luke s Medical Center

Mary E Nelsen BSN, RN, JD attended Texas Woman's University's College of Nursing, graduating in 1973. I have worked in different areas of nursing for the past 44 years, the last 17 at the St Luke's Cystic Fibrosis Center of Idaho. My role has been that of nurse coordinator. In addition, I took several years off from nursing to attend law school and work as an attorney. I found that I preferred nursing to legal work and returned to nursing in the late 90's. I have also completed The Dartmouth Institute Microsystems Academy Coaching Program. I have presented at NACFC, Mountain West CF Consortium, local education days. As a CFF Quality Coach, I have had the pleasure of coaching several CF teams that participated in the LLC and OneCF. In my spare time, I enjoy working in my garden, reading, biking, fishing but most of all playing with my grandchildren.
