B.S.N., M.S.N., Ed.D. in Progress
Assistant Professor of Nursing
Coordinator of Distant Clinical Sites
Assessment Coordinator for RN-B.S.N. and M.S.N. Online Programs
Hello! I am the Coordinator of Distant Clinical Sites at Liberty University. The Richmond program was started in 2008 and has enabled the nursing program at Liberty University to expand its clinical sites to Richmond Virginia. I currently teach residential, clinical, and online classes at Liberty University. The Lord has provided a wonderful way for me to minister to the students through nursing education.
I was raised in a Christian home and accepted Christ as my personal Saviour at the age of five. I have been a registered nurse for 19 years, married to my amazing husband for 26 years, and have three daughters, Mariah-16, Madison-14, and Morgynne-11. We moved from Wisconsin to Virginia in June of 2008, after spending three years at a small Christian college where I assisted in the development of a new nursing program. I am originally from Pennsylvania and am a huge Penn State and Steeler fan.
The Lord has provided me a wonderful opportunity to work with the Nursing department at Liberty University through the Richmond program. If you have any questions about this program or would like additional information, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com
RN, BSN, ICU RN
Medical/Surgical and ICU background
Staff Nurse at St. Mary's Hospital
My name is Hadassah Martin. I was born and raised in Glen Allen, Va., very close to Richmond, where I currently live. I was fortunate to have Christian parents who led me to the Lord when I was in first grade. I attended Liberty University where I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in nursing degree in May of 2006. I was born at St. Mary’s and it has always been the hospital of choice for my family and me. I applied there after graduating and worked there as an Oncology nurse for four years before transferring to the general Intensive Care Unit in June of 2010. There I am enjoying learning to take care of a variety of critically-ill patients. I was blessed with the opportunity to begin teaching the Richmond students in fall of 2010.
ICU RN, BSN
Medsurg clinical faculty
Graduate of Liberty University's nursing program.
I was raised in a military family, but consider myself to be a native “Virginian,” having spent close to half of my life in the commonwealth. I consider myself very privileged to have completed my undergraduate work and earned a BSN at Liberty University’s school of nursing in 2006. My career thus far has consisted of critical care nursing in which I worked for almost five years in an Intensive Care Unit in Louisville, Ky., before returning to Virginia.
My family and I are very thankful to now be living in Richmond, Va., where my husband serves as an associate pastor at a local church. We have two little girls, Lydia and Phoebe, age four and one respectively. They are what fill our home with love, joy, noise, laughs, tears and drama! And we thank the Lord for the sweet blessing of children.
When going through nursing school at Liberty, one of the many nuggets of wisdom professors imparted to me was that, as nurses, we get to be the “hands and feet of Jesus.” This philosophy of work and ministry has been the guiding theme of my career. I am utterly humbled that God has brought me to a position as nursing faculty where I am now able to teach students what it is like to be the “hands and feet of Jesus.”
