Mental Health and Addictions Nursing Specialty Program

Lindsay Maxwell, RN, BN, MN

Lindsay graduated from Western Regional School of Nursing in 2016 with her Bachelor of Nursing degree. After taking a year away from school to work as an RN, she went on to complete her Master of Nursing degree, with a focus on mental health and addictions, from Memorial University of Newfoundland.

After undergraduate graduation, Lindsay found her passion in Mental Health and Addictions nursing and has been working in the field ever since. Her professional work experience includes adult inpatient addiction withdrawal management, inpatient acute care psychiatry, inpatient crisis stabilization, and outpatient mental health and addictions. Lindsay has always had an interest in teaching, so a nursing instructor position with the MHANSP felt like the perfect fit.

Outside of her professional role, Lindsay is kept busy with her two young children and two labrador retrievers. She enjoys spending time outdoors, reading a good book, and taking any opportunity to visit home (Newfoundland).
