I-CARE is an acronym for I-Care About Restoring Excellence in Healthcare.
Amanda Nicklas became a nurse almost 18 years ago, graduating with her bachelors in science degree from Seattle Pacific University. Her passion to serve those needing care has led her to work in areas of healthcare from birth to end-of-life. Throughout her career, she has worked in Labor & Delivery Units, NICU, Cardiac Telemetry and home healthcare environments. Amanda served three years in the US Navy Nurse corps as an officer, and was stationed at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD, serving during the time of transition to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. During her time in the Navy, she served in a variety of leadership roles, while also providing medical care to active duty and retired military members, in addition to a deployment to Haiti on the USNS Comfort for the Operation Unified Response in response to the 2010 Earthquake in Haiti.
Leaving the military, she settled in North Virginia with her family, living now in Ashburn, VA with Patrick, her husband and their 3 children: Caleb, Hannah and Simon. While continuing her service to women and children in Labor & Delivery, Amanda sought to advance her career her in educating future nurses and healthcare professionals. In this pursuit, Amanda received her Master’s in Science in Nursing from Gonzaga University.
Amanda has worked at the George Washington University School of Nursing, teaching a variety of classes, skills lab and simulation courses, as well as serving as the Assistant Director of Simulation and Experiential Learning. Amanda is also perusing her doctorate in translational health sciences to further the science of implementation of best practices in all areas of healthcare. During her course work, she has worked as a research assistant working on research which includes educating professionals in advance care planning for individuals on dialysis and with chronic kidney diseases; as well as incorporating innovative educational methods for healthcare providers. Future research interests are in implementing nursing education methodologies and best practices in all aspects of health profession education.
Throughout her career, Amanda has sought to provide compassionate, holistic and best-practices for her patients and students. As she moves forward in her vocation, she seeks to approach healthcare and healthcare education in a way that provides knowledge in a compassionate and innovative way to allow her students to embed the mission of caring for patients in their soul-work of healthcare.
