Johnston was one of the first nursing faculty members hired for Shorter University’s School of Nursing and played an instrumental role in the establishment of the university’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program. Before coming to Shorter, she worked at Gordon Hospital in Calhoun, serving as an infection prevention and control professional, director of quality management, assistant educator, and charge nurse/staff nurse in both the Intensive Care Unit and in the Medical/Surgical Unit.

Shorter's plans to offer the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree were announced in early 2008 with the first nursing classes beginning in the fall of 2010. The first class of BSN students graduated in May 2012. In addition to excellent health care training, Shorter's BSN program has a unique component that complements the university's Christ-centered mission; all nursing majors are required to take part in a global health care study and medical missions experience. For two years, this requirement has taken Shorter student nurses to Bulgaria, where they have served in orphanages, and to England, where they have studied health care delivery systems.
Founded in 1873, Shorter University is a Christian university committed to excellence in education. The Princeton Review annually includes Shorter on its lists of best value and best Southeastern colleges. The university offers traditional bachelor’s degrees in 48 major areas as well as undergraduate degree programs for working adults, the Master of Business Administration, the Master of Education and the Master of Arts in Leadership. General education and calculus courses are offered in an online format, and Shorter offers online programs that lead toward the Associate of Science, the Bachelor of Business Administration, and the Master of Accountancy degrees.
