Michelle Palmborg joined the MSNEL faculty team in January 2019 after teaching as an adjunct faculty member in both the CfW and old ADN program since 2015. Michelle obtained her doctor of nursing practice degree with a focus in transcultural and holistic nursing in May, 2019 from Augsburg University.

Her passion is in cultural humility, dismantling health disparities, and encouraging nurses to deemphasize their expert role in order to become citizen nurses.
