Dr. Vicki Aaberg came to Seattle Pacific after extensive clinical practice as a nurse. She has always worked with pregnant women in some way — mostly in hospitals as a labor and delivery nurse, but also in clinic and home-care settings. As a bedside nurse she had the opportunity to work with and mentor nurses new to the maternal-newborn experience, sparking her interest in teaching.

Dr. Aaberg teaches courses at SPU about maternal-newborn nursing, human sexuality and nursing, and human sexuality.

Why I Teach at SPU

Vicki Aaberg, Assistant Professor of Nursing

“I teach at SPU because I can use my God-given gifts to teach and challenge students and I thoroughly enjoy being challenged by the high caliber of students who attend SPU.”
