Mickelsen has been teaching in the radiographic science program since 2002. She mentors and advises students at both the Pocatello and University Place campus in Idaho Falls. She delivers her courses with a passion and zest which takes students “beyond the books” to increase their level of learning, clinical competence and effective health care delivery.
In radiographic pathology, her students actively perform a mock biopsy, and as part of her pediatric radiography class, the students travel to Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City to experience the gold standard in pediatric medical imaging practices. 
In addition, Mickelsen is instrumental in aiding graduates in pursuing advanced imaging modality opportunities in computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, angiography, mammography, bone densitometry and the newly approved diagnostic medical sonography program. She has served as the president-elect, president and chair of the Board for the Idaho Society of Radiologic Technologists and is a former Idaho delegate to the American Society of Radiologic Technologists.
