Linda Crawford, DNP, is the director of the High Desert Regional Center Two-Plus-Two nursing program.

She previously taught for California State University, Fullerton, and Cambridge College. Crawford has been a preceptor for students from a variety of universities throughout her nursing career, and she strongly believes in sharing the mentoring she has received in her career with those coming into nursing behind her.
