News on retirement-Linda Bale

Linda and STTI MN graduates

Dean Dworkin's gratitude to SNHS staff member Linda Bale, MN Advisor

"Linda Bale has worked for 28 years at University of Washington (Seattle and Bothell campuses) to support students and programs. I am saddened to now share that she is retiring as of July 6. This is a huge loss for the University of Washington System, for Bothell, and for the School of Nursing and Health Studies in particular. For the last 12 years, we in SNHS have had the honor of working with Linda, as the advisor of the MN program. Linda has brought such a warm, robust and meticulous dedication and commitment to her work, whether she was focused on direct advising and managing of the MN program, developing program capacity to serve more students, or coordinating and assessing curricula, among many other critical tasks. She has worked tirelessly for all of these years, contributing to the success of the newly created MN program at UWB in 2002 and then navigating program expansion to several off-site locations, in response to the changing health care system and health care partner needs. She has given so much of herself to the position and everyone around her."
