Assistant Professor of Nursing
Professor Amanda Pribble started her nursing career at Lynchburg General Hospital in an intensive care unit taking care of postoperative open heart surgery patients and lung surgery patients. She became a charge nurse and preceptor for new nurses. As a preceptor, she started to realize that she enjoyed teaching. While working, she obtained by MSN- family nurse practitioner, and transitioned out of the hospital to working in a skilled and long term care nursing facility as a nurse practitioner, mostly with the geriatric population. Professor Pribble continues to practice periodically as a NP. She is excited and honored to be a part of the University of Lynchburg nursing faculty.
In August 2013, professor Pribble was selected in a competitive application process as one of 36 advanced practice nurses to attend an advance practice palliative care nursing externship. She participated in a five day intensive program at Virginia Commonwealth University on the Thomas Palliative Care Unit in interactive, case base training. She was able to improve her skills in symptom control, communication, goal-setting and end of life care.

Professor Pribble has a strong interest in end of life care (palliative and hospice care). She also is interested in research regarding technology use (particularly iPads) in nursing education.
Professor Pribble, her husband, Josh, and their very spoiled Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Maxwell, live in the Lynchburg area. Running and hot yoga are two of her favorite forms of relaxation and exercise. She also enjoys vacations in the Outer Bank, NC.
