Lindsey A. Johnston, FNP – C

Great Plains Orthopaedics


Certification & Education

Most memorable patient or case: Prior to coming to Great Plains Orthopaedics, Lindsey was a Flight Nurse with OSF Aviation for 5.5 years. Her most memorable patient was involved in a motorcycle accident, and we were requested to provide our services on the scene of the incident. Due to the critical injuries the patient sustained, she ended up performing my first surgical airway.  As Flight Nurses, you are trained for these types of situations; however, you pray you never need to use the skills, knowledge, and training.  Because of the excellent training she received during my time with OSF Aviation, she was able to perform the surgical airway with confidence.

Community involvement: Lindsey is involved in several events that raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Hobbies: She loves running and spending time with my family.

Family: She has a husband, Mike and we German Shepherd named Axel.

Philosophy: Her junior year of high school, she became a volunteer firefighter for her hometown.  During her time with the fire department she realized her passion for helping those in need, and felt that nursing would be the perfect career to fulfill her passion.
