EdD Student

Hello, my name is Amanda Willey from Cambridge, Maryland. I am enrolled in the Doctorate of Education Program, Nursing Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Frostburg State University where I majored in psychology. After working with emotionally disturbed children and with the court system, I decided to return to school for my nursing degree. I obtained my nursing degree from Salisbury University through their second degree program and became the Health Service Administrator/RN for a local correctional facility. Returning to Salisbury University, I earned my Master of Science degree in Clinical Nursing Education where I really discovered my love of teaching. As a current faculty member at Salisbury University, I have been awarded the New Nursing Faculty Fellowship from the Maryland Higher Education Commission. I am an instructor in Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing, theory and clinical, as well as Community Health Nursing clinical. I hope to continue to incorporate my love of psychology and education throughout my career. My research areas of interest include cheating among nursing students, secondary PTSD, forensics, and emergency response/preparedness.
