Dr. Johnson is a professional registered nurse, and has practiced in adult critical care, perinatal critical care, perinatal nursing, home health nursing, case management, and risk management.  She has been practicing as a legal nurse consultant since 1995, working as in-house and as an independent consultant on litigation from discovery through settlement/mediation and trial.

Her interest in risk management led to a decision to pursue a doctorate in health administration.  Her dissertation study focused on the nursing process as a factor in allegations against nurses involved in malpractice lawsuits.

Dr. Johnson has taught nursing at many levels, including practical nursing, associate degree nursing, baccalaureate degree nursing, and graduate degree nursing levels.  Her clinical practice has taken her from the Midwest to the Pacific islands and now to Florida.  She has been involved in teaching legal nurse consulting for Florida Atlantic University since 2011.
