School of Nursing Professor Norma Krumwiede received the 2016 Duane Orr Teacher of the Year Award from Minnesota State Student Association.

Several students nominated Krumwiede for the Teacher of the Year award. Their letter of support states, “Dr. Krumwiede has been a positive influence in our learning experience. She has not only taught us the fundamentals of nursing but has pushed us to strive for excellence in our careers and personal lives. In the classroom setting, she has shown us the way by encouraging us to become critical thinkers, challenging us to think outside of the box.”

According to students, Krumwiede goes above and beyond to ensure that all students what they need to succeed: unique learning opportunities, confidence, academic experience and opportunities to grow as professional nurses. In addition, she is an active community member, leading by example and promoting health in community events.

Perhaps the most lasting lesson bestowed upon students by Dr. Krumwiede is to nurse with heart. 

“Dr. Norma Krumwiede is one of the most generous, kind hearted and inspiring individuals that I know. I cannot think of anyone who deserves this honor more than she does,” said Alli Maleska. 

Thank you and congratulations Dr. Krumwiede!
