Mariah Keane was born and raised in Oregon and joins the University of Portland fulltime after serving as an adjunct clinical faculty member since 2020. Mariah’s academic experience includes teaching for the nursing program at her alma mater, Concordia University-Portland, from 2016 through 2020. Her professional nursing background includes almost a decade of experience working in the ICU at a Level 1 trauma center, comprehensive stroke center, and ECMO Center of Excellence as a relief charge nurse, preceptor, ECMO specialist, shared governance chair, quality improvement and infection prevention champion, and unit preceptor coordinator orienting and onboarding new hires, as well as experience in both pediatric home health and outpatient cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation. Through all these roles and experiences, Mariah has found teaching the invaluable work and heart of nursing and seeing students excel in their journey to serve their community to be the most rewarding part of her career.
