Marylou Robinson

Marylou Robinson joined academia after retiring from the Army Nurse Corps. She has lived around the world, among many cultural groups. Her adult-health focus includes trauma and critical care emphases. She has been honored as one of only 30 RNs to have maintained critical care certification (CCRN) for over 30 years. As a National Ski Patroller, Robinson has blended her love of snow sports and critical care expertise with her research interests, focusing on projects to decrease trauma on the ski slopes. She is also certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner. In 2008, Dr. Robinson established the Douglas County Employee Clinic in Castle Rock; she is the sole provider and graduate-student preceptor at the clinic.

Robinson earned her bachelor of science in nursing from the University of Maryland, her master of science in medical-surgical CNS and nursing education from the Catholic University of America, and her PhD with a focus on nursing of families and individuals from Oregon Health and Science University.
