Emily McKee

Assistant Professor of Nursing
Back to Faculty


Emily McKee received her MSN-ed from Baker College in May of 2018.  She has been teaching at Spring Arbor University since January of 2018 when she began with our Baccalaureate Pre-Licensure Nursing track in the School of Nursing and Health Sciences as a clinical instructor.  Upon completion of her MSN-ed, she joined our team as full-time faculty. Emily’s current position includes managing the Simulation Center, handling clinical placements, and teaching a variety of nursing curriculum.

Prior to joining the team at SAU, Emily worked as a staff nurse in OB and Pediatrics for 15 years, while also teaching clinical for a local community college for 5 of those years.

Emily grew up on the east side of the state and relocated to the west side in 2000.  She now lives in the Battle Creek area with her two children.  In her spare time, she enjoys traveling and watching her children compete in both horseback riding and competitive shooting.

”I do my best to start each day out on a positive note and keep Christ at the forefront of my decision-making process throughout the day in both my personal life and as I teach each course. Making connections with each of my students is an important piece of teaching.”
