Phone: 205-726-4647Jill Pence received her Master of Science in Nursing Education degree from Samford in 2002 and immediately knew that Samford was where she wanted to work. She began teaching at Samford as an adjunct and then joined as full time faculty in 2008. Jill played an integral role in developing and implementing the undergraduate nursing simulation program during her first few years at Samford. Simulation soon became her passion leading her to her current position within the College of Health Sciences Simulation Center. She enjoys being able to work with other professions and it makes her day when students have “light bulb moments”. She has taught undergraduate nursing for 11 years and each day presents new challenges and new discoveries with students. It is a true joy to serve each student along their journey.
