About the author

Marty Walker has practiced nursing for the past 30 years at the vocational nursing level as a registered nurse, and at the master’s level. Marty began her nursing career as a licensed practical nurse, receiving her vocational education certificate from Atlantic Vocational School in Pompano Beach, Florida in 1979. In 1982, she earned the associate degree in nursing from Broward Community College in Davie, Florida. She worked for more than 10 years as a staff nurse in telemetry, critical care, and emergency nursing before completing a bachelor of science degree in nursing from Florida International University in Miami, Florida. In 1995, she began teaching medical-surgical nursing at Ivy Tech State College in Sellersburg, Indiana.

After relocating to Miami, Marty accepted a position as Nurse Clinical Educator for three cardiac units at Jackson Memorial Hospital. She attained a Master’s in Nursing Science in Nursing Education from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida in 2003. Marty’s love of teaching led her to Mercy Hospital’s School of Practical Nursing, along with adjunct teaching positions at Florida International University and Barry University. In Miami, Marty added pediatrics to her teaching expertise. She taught medical-surgical nursing for a short time at Pensacola Junior College in Pensacola, Florida before accepting a full-time associate professor position at Northwest Florida State College, where she currently teaches in the RN-BSN program as well as the associate degree nursing program. Marty’s expertise also includes test construction. She has led the faculty at NWF State College in improving the success rates of students enrolled in the program as well as their success on the NCLEX-RN. Marty’s versatility extends to her clinical practice as she has recently completed the family nurse practitioner certificate program at The University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama. Marty volunteers as a clinic nurse and the director of nursing services for the Crossroads Medical Center Clinic in Valparaiso, Florida.

Linda Whitenton began a 38-year nursing career in 1967 as a nursing assistant in Paducah, Kentucky. Following her graduation from Murray State University’s BSN program in 1970, she practiced in mental health, pediatrics, and medical-surgical nursing. Teaching nursing assistants, emergency medical technicians, and unit secretaries in a Mississippi hospital cemented her love for teaching in her role as a hospital in-service education director in the early 1970s. She accepted her first teaching position at Northeast Mississippi Community College in 1975. While at NEMC, she taught fundamentals, medical-surgical nursing, management, and psychiatric nursing and served as assistant director and director of the program for seven years. In 1977, Linda earned her master’s of science degree in nursing at the Mississippi University for Women, which also afforded her the family nurse clinician credential. In 1987, she relocated to Florida and accepted a position as associate director of nursing for the associate degree nursing program at St. Petersburg College in St. Petersburg. While at SPC, she designed curriculum for more than 1,000 employees of the Pinellas County EMS, taught LPN transitional students at night, and practiced part time at the Bayfront Medical Center Trauma Center.

During her 27 years of teaching, Linda continued to practice in emergency nursing, urological nursing, and as a nurse clinician. Linda also earned 30 hours of post-masters work in anthropology and educational psychology. In 2004, she returned to clinical practice as the director of nursing/vice president for a Mississippi community hospital. While there, she received a national award for outstanding nursing leadership. She returned to Florida in 2000 to design and direct a new AD nursing program for Northwest Florida State College, formerly Okaloosa-Walton College, the first of five health programs now in place at the college. For the past three years, Linda has served as associate dean of Health Technology, adding administrative oversight for the health programs she launched during her eight-year tenure at NWFSC. She recently retired from the college, receiving the honor of Emeritus Associate Dean and Director of Nursing. Since the early 1990s, Linda has worked with Rinehart and Associates Nursing Review, a nurse-owned company that offers review courses for graduates preparing for their examination to become licensed RNs or LPNs. Linda is a Certified Nurse Educator, CNE, and a member of Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Society.
