Amy Howells PhD, CPNP-AC/PC
I began my career as a nurse in the pediatric intensive care unit in 2000. After getting some experience, I started the Master of Science program at the University of Texas Health Science Center to become a pediatric nurse practitioner. I graduated in 2005 and practiced in the PICU as first an instructor, then an assistant professor for Baylor College of Medicine. I held that clinical appointment for 11 years, during which time I completed a post-master’s certificate for acute care PNP and my PhD in Nursing.
I left Houston to come to Seattle and join the faculty of the School of Nursing in 2016, in order to facilitate the creation of the acute care PNP track. I also engage in research concerning decision-making at the end of life for pediatric patients who are admitted to the PICU and participate in bioethics activities.
