Jonas V Veterans Healthcare Scholar

Amelia Grayson, BSN, RN

Grand Valley State University
DNP Student

I received my BSN as a second degree from Grand Valley State University. My first RN job was on a Medical Surgical floor at at a large urban hospital in NYC. I then worked in a Post Anesthesia Care Unit at the same hospital. Following a move to Utah, I became an outpatient oncology nurse at Cancer Hospital in their genitourinary cancer program. After 8 years working as an RN I decided to return to school for a graduate degree and was excited to learn about the doctorate of nursing practice degree. I am currently pursuing an adult/older adult DNP. My future scholarly activity involves supporting interventions to help elderly adults self-manage their medications at home.
