Lindsey A. Johnston, FNP – C

Great Plains Orthopaedics


Certification & Education

Most memorable patient or case: Prior to coming to Great Plains I was a Flight Nurse with OSF Aviation for 5.5 years.  My 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, I 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 I received during my time with OSF Aviation, I was able to perform the surgical airway with confidence.

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

Hobbies: I love running and spending time with my family.

Family: My husband’s name is Mike and we have a German Shepherd named Axel.

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