Linda L. Daniel
Regents' Proceedings 326

Linda L. Daniel, associate professor of nursing, will retire from active faculty status on May 31, 1999, after a most productive career as a teacher and practitioner.

A native of Oklahoma, Professor Daniel received her B.S.N. degree from the University of Oklahoma in 1964 and her M.S.N. degree from the University of Washington in 1967. In 1969, she received a Certificate in Medical Care from the University of Oslo in Norway. From 1964-66, Professor Daniel was a staff public health nurse at Seattle-King County Health Department, Seattle, Washington. From 1967-69, she was assistant professor and chair, Community Health Nursing, University of Oklahoma School of Nursing. She returned to service and was supervisor of public health nursing at Oklahoma City-County Health Department from 1969-70. Professor Daniel joined the University of Michigan in 1970 as assistant professor of nursing and was promoted to associate professor in 1973.

Professor Daniel contributed strength and creativity to the instructional and service initiatives in Community Health Nursing. She carried major responsibility for the basic undergraduate course, which is part of the school's core curriculum. She also contributed significantly to the graduate program in Community Health Nursing.

It was Professor Daniel's creative and persistent efforts that in 1991 resulted in the establishment of the North Campus Family Health Service, a nurse-managed wellness and primary care center that delivers culturally sensitive primary health care to University families living on North Campus. She also initiated the National Nursing Symposium on Home Health Care and served as its chair from 1985-97.

The Regents now salute this distinguished community health nursing educator for her dedicated service by naming Linda L. Daniel associate professor emerita of nursing.
