She is most honored for receiving the Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence from the University of MissouriColumbia, the Unique Contribution Award from the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association, and for being selected as a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing.

She believes that her education gave her solid and everlasting roots in nursing. Her work with students has given her the wings that allow her love of nursing and teaching to continue through the years.

A widow, Dr. LeMone lives with her dog and shares time with her two children and her granddaughter. When she has time, she enjoys growing flowers and reading fiction.

Karen Burke has practiced nursing in acute intensive and coronary care, in community-based settings, and in nursing education. As an educator, she has taught nursing skills, fundamentals, pathophysiology, and basic to advanced medical-surgical nursing. Ms. Burke has a diploma in nursing from Emanuel Hospital School of Nursing in Portland, Oregon, later completing baccalaureate studies at Oregon Health & Science University, and a master's degree at University of Portland.

Ms. Burke has been part of the nursing faculty at Clatsop Community College in Astoria, Oregon, since the inception of the Associate Degree Nursing program in 1983, most recently serving as Director of Health Occupations and Nursing. In this role, she is known as a leader and an innovator. She led the nursing faculty in developing an online program to deliver basic nursing education to a distant rural community. This program continues, serving as a model for other community college nursing programs to reach out to geographically isolated communities. Ms. Burke is actively involved in nursing education and developing strategies to address the nursing shortage in Oregon. She is a member of the Oregon Council of Associate Degree Nursing Programs (OCAP) and the Oregon Nursing Leadership Council (ONLC), currently serving as chair of the ONLC Education Committee.

Ms. Burke sees herself as a nurse first, then a nurse educator and educational administrator. She strongly values the nursing profession and the importance of providing a solid education in the, art and science of nursing for all students entering the profession.

When possible, Ms. Burke and her husband Steve spend time with their extended family and traveling. She enjoys a passion for quilting, and, when the weather allows, gardening.
