Sarah joined the Belmont faculty as a full-time adjunct instructor in the fall of 2010. She teaches in both laboratory and clinical settings in undergraduate Health Assessment and Adult Health Nursing courses.
Sarah’s practice experience is in the field of adult health, specifically oncology. She began her nursing career as a staff nurse on an inpatient step-down unit at Duke University Hospital caring for patients with hematological malignancies. Her passion for the oncology population motivated her to obtain certification as an Oncology Certified Nurse (OCN). While continuing to work as an oncology nurse, Sarah completed a Master’s in Nursing Education at Duke University. In addition, she served as a part-time clinical instructor for the Duke University School of Nursing. She now continues to practice nursing on a PRN basis as a staff nurse on a medical-surgical oncology unit at Baptist Hospital in Nashville.
A personal note from Sarah. . . . .
I knew from a young age that I wanted to be either a nurse or a teacher. I feel so blessed that God has given me the opportunity to be both! My mother has been an oncology nurse for thirty years, and she has influenced me and encouraged me greatly throughout my nursing journey.
