Neysa L. Brown
I began my nursing journey in 1996 when I obtained an Associates Degree in Nursing and worked as a staff nurse and charge nurse in a hospital based medical/surgical unit. I gained valuable nursing experience and transferred to labor and delivery where I worked my way up the professional ladder going from staff nurse to Coordinator of Women's services where I was responsible for the discharge education of patients, education of staff, and teaching prenatal classes for the community. From there I grew to managing Women's Services. The management area I covered included pediatrics, labor and delivery, two operating rooms, recovery room, obstetrical triage, and postpartum. During my tenure in Women's Services, I was selected to become a clinical supervisor for Level 3 Maternal Child students and then was selected to be a clinical supervisor for Level 4 Leadership students. I served as a clinical supervisor for 6 years before becoming the Clinical Coordinator of Nursing Simulation and Technology for the Anderson College of Nursing. I served in simulation for 2.5 years then was selected for a faculty position with the Anderson College of Nursing and Health Professionals.
During my professional growth I furthered my education as well. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2007 then obtained my Master of Nursing in 2018.
