My name is Lynne A. Jensen; I am a native of Buffalo, N.Y. I earned my BSN at Boston College in 1975, and a master’s degree as a nurse practitioner from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1980. My doctoral degree was obtained from the University of Kentucky in 2007. My dissertation focused on women and cardiac disease.
I have worked as a nurse practitioner since 1979 in a variety of positions in acute care and women’s health. I was one of the first cardiothoracic acute care nurse practitioners at the University of Rochester. In the late 1980s I transitioned to working in women’s health in private practice. I joined the University of Kentucky College of Nursing in 1998 and was a founding member of the women’s health practice in 1999. I am the associate director for clinical care for the Center for the Advancement of Women’s Health at UK, where I maintain an active practice.
In my teaching role at UK, I have worked with the College of Medicine and their standardized patient program in developing evaluations for nurse practitioner students since 2001. I have presented at national meetings on the use of OSCEs and SCIMs in the nurse practitioner curriculum. I also serve as clinical faculty for the family nurse practitioner students as well as teaching in the family nurse practitioner specialty courses.
