Biography

Following graduation from nursing school, Amanda Barron began her career on a medical-surgical oncology floor at Princeton Baptist Medical Center. During this time, she not only devoted her time to caring for the ill, but she also discovered a passion for teaching nursing students. Since the beginning of her nursing career, she has gained experience in critical care nursing, specifically in a cardiac intensive care unit, and outpatient hematology oncology. In 2011, she began teaching in a part-time capacity for the Ida Moffett School of Nursing. In 2015, she graduated with her M.S.N. from The University of Alabama and is currently working on her dissertation study to complete her EdD in Instructional Leadership. One of her favorite Bible verses is 1 Corinthians 15:58- “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourself fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”  She feels blessed with the opportunity to combine her love for nursing and passion for teaching students in a Christian environment.  She hopes to be a faithful servant of the Lord by instructing and encouraging her students to become caring and compassionate nurses in whatever area the Lord leads them.
