Amy Walker PhD, RN
I received my Master’s of Science in Nursing at Vanderbilt University in 1997. From 1997- 2003 I worked primarily in pediatric critical care and hospice settings. I then started the PhD Program at Oregon Health & Science University and graduated in Summer 2008. I did a postdoctoral fellowship at UCSF from 2008-2010. Since completion, I have been an assistant professor at University of Washington.
Since then I have been teaching in the undergraduate program and developing a program of research focused on families facing childhood cancer.
