About us:

Health Vista, Inc. was created by Mary Knutson, RN, MSN, as a business and as a place to collect quality educational resources. In 2005, she completed a Masters degree of MSN-Nurse Educator. She obtained a Nursing Informatics Certificate in 2014.

Mary worked as a clinical instructor for nursing programs, in long-term care, community health, and other clinic and hospital roles. She also worked as a psychiatric nurse, a clinical research coordinator, a public health nurse, and other RN roles unrelated to this business or this project.

She is passionate about patient education, especially Recovery Education. More learning activities are being developed to be added to this website in the future.
