Biography

Amy Smith, MSN, RN, CNE is a clinical instructor in the accelerated undergraduate nursing program at the Medical University of South Carolina.  She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Bradley University, Peoria, IL in 2007 and her Master of Science in Nursing Education from Walden University in 2012.

 

Mrs. Smith began her nursing career as an oncology nurse at UnityPoint Health Methodist hospital, and served in a variety of roles such as lead nurse, mentor, preceptor, unit educator, and clinical research coordinator.  In addition, she was the coordinating nurse for the stem cell transplant unit.  Her passion for mentoring and educating students is what lead her to obtain her master’s degree in nursing education.  Since 2012, Mrs. Smith has worked as an assistant professor instructing a variety of courses, both didactic and online, including med/surg, pathopharmacology, health policy, ethics, and health assessment.  She received certification as a Certified Nurse Educator from the NLN in 2019, and is a member of the National League for Nursing and Sigma Theta Tau Phi Phi chapter.  In 2019, she developed a rural health travel course to Cherokee, NC, where nursing students were able to learn about the health disparities and barriers to health care access in this rural area.

Mrs. Smith’s current research interests are palliative care, management of depression in oncology patients, utilization of technological resources in the classroom, high fidelity simulation and classroom assessment techniques.  She plans on enrolling in the online DNP program at MUSC in 2020, with a project focus on palliative care.
