Dr. Diane Jedlicka comes to Notre Dame College from Otterbein College where she held the positions of professor and program director of adult health care. In addition to teaching, she has significant experience as a staff nurse, flight nurse and outreach educator in Columbus, Ohio. The civic-minded Jedlicka has been a volunteer disaster nurse with the American Red Cross where she helped victims of the 1974 Xenia tornado and the infamous Blizzard of ‘78.

Diane’s love for things international takes her to India periodically as a volunteer with the Christian Medical College and Hospital. The two to six week programs help alleviate the severe nursing shortage in that country. She has also traveled to Russia, and in 2004 aided victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami. At home she has enjoyed her role as volunteer host family for international exchange programs in Columbus.
