Lynn Senette has enjoyed a long career in nursing. She received her B.S.N., as well as an M.B.A. from the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now University of Louisiana-Lafayette). She later earned her Master of Science (Nursing) with a focus on nursing education from the University of Alaska Anchorage. Her clinical focus is adult critical care and medical-surgical nursing with work experiences ranging from staff nurse to Director of Critical Care.

Lynn started her teaching career on the Kenai Peninsula as an adjunct instructor and clinical coordinator for Weber State University's AAS Outreach nursing program. She began teaching for UAA in 2005 on the Kenai Peninsula campus, later moving to the main campus in 2011. Besides her teaching duties, she also serves as the AAS Outreach Coordinator. Her favorite quote is: We are all learners here and that include ME and we are all teachers here, and that includes YOU.

Lynn's scholarship activities focus on the use of clinical simulation in nursing education. She served as a member of UAA's State Task Force on Simulation, was a faculty facilitator for the National League for Nursing (NLN) High-Stakes Assessment Project, and co-authored a journal article published in Clinical Simulation in Nursing. She is excited to belong to a teaching team recently awarded university grant monies to implement interdisciplinary simulation focused on mentorship and leadership development between remedial, first-year college students and senior level nursing students. This summer found her in Las Vegas, where she co-presented a poster titled "Using Interprofessional Multi-Patient Simulation to Bridge the Nurse Reality Gap" at the 12th Annual International Nursing/Simulation Resource Centers Conference.

Lynn has been married for 33 years to Brent Senette, an engineer who works for CH2MHill Alaska. They have four daughters and two new son-in-laws.
