What is your mission at NVS?/What will you be working with?

My name is Lina Nord, I started as a lecturer at the study programmes in nursing and specialist nursing (anaesthetic nursing) on August 14.

Which division will you be working at?

I will be working at the Division of Nursing, come visit me at C2!

What do you look forward to the most in your new position?

To be able to influence future nurses and specialist nurses! We need more competent, brave and mindful colleagues.

Where have you been active before and what have you done earlier?

Up until now I have mainly been employed at the ambulance services, working in emergency ambulance, intensive care ambulance and on-call physician emergency vehicles, among other things. I have also worked in emergency care in Sweden and Norway, as well as telephone services for 1177, and home health care. I started my career at a surgical emergency ward at Karolinska Huddinge.

I was an internal auditor at my previous employer, CPR-instructor, and has always focused on improvements and clinical education. I am certain that education is the foundation for the competence I want to see in my future colleagues and if and when my friends and family need care.

When you are not working, what do you do for recreation?

I have a 3-year-old and a house. Is there time for anything else? I knit as much as time permits, ride my motorcycle as much as the weather permits, and pick mushrooms until my back and knees hurt. I like to work out and need to keep busy to feel good.

Are you reading a book at the moment? Which one?

"Haynes service and repair manual for Kawasaki ER-6". I am determined to learn how to service my bike by myself but need a manual for dummies – which I have found. I have switched tires and changed oil by myself which is impressive for someone who generally is all thumbs.

Tell us about the most beautiful place you have visited? 

The Swedish forests, without a doubt. There is nothing more beautiful than the calm in our lush and green forests. Moss beneath the feet, mushrooms in a basket and birdsong in the ears… The holy island of Miyjaima in Japan comes in at second place, magical views but it lacks the liveliness of our pine forests.

What makes you happy?

When my child lets me experience the world through the eyes of a 3-year-old. Listening to reasoning and logic not yet influenced by the norms of society is refreshing.
