Dr. Angela Bentley's nursing practice experience is in cardiovascular and critical care, including cardiovascular intensive care, heart failure/heart transplant, and emergency air transport in addition to several years in staff development/clinical nurse specialist.

She is a board-certified Cardiac Vascular Nurse, emeritus-certified critical care nurse (CCRN), and a certified Nurse Educator.

I enjoy watching students increase their confidence in knowledge as they progress through the nursing program.
