Amy Long, M.S.N.

Instructor, School of Nursing 

Amy LongA native of the Pacific Northwest, Amy Long received her master of science in nursing from Case Western Reserve University in 2010 and immediately began her 11-year career at Housecall Providers providing primary, palliative, and hospice care to medically fragile individuals in their homes. While lead clinician at Housecall, she was able to develop a structured one-year mentorship program for newly hired medical providers, addressing the clinical, logistic, and personal challenges that accompany the demanding role. The program allowed them to feel more prepared, effective, and connected, and as a result stabilized turnover. Prior to her work as a nurse practitioner she was a R.N. in the medical/surgical units at the county hospital serving Cleveland, Ohio and unlicensed clinical support for both Outside In and Planned Parenthood. Her undergraduate degree is a self-designed major from Fairhaven College of Western Washington University, “American Social Stratification: Society, Economy, and Policy.“ Aside from her ongoing interest in supporting the medical needs of marginalized and underserved populations, she also has a commitment to addressing nursing burnout, moral injury, and resilience. This is her first teaching position and she is enthusiastic about utilizing her clinical experience to help create a strong, flexible nursing workforce. Amy is an avid sewist, crafting much of her own wardrobe, loves hiking, and enjoys volunteering walking dogs at the local animal shelter.
