Heart & Vascular Welcomes Broom
Amanda L. Broom, CNP, recently joined the Heart Failure Clinic at Hattiesburg Clinic Heart & Vascular.
Under the supervision of the department’s cardiologists, Broom provides care and education to patients with heart failure in an effort to improve outcomes and quality of life. Her goal is to help expand the accessibility of care for patients with heart failure so they can be treated for their condition locally.
Broom received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Miss., and a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Ala.
She is board certified as a family nurse practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She holds memberships with a variety of professional organizations, including the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association, Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and Spirit of Women.
Broom said she takes pride in establishing relationships with her patients and becoming a part of their lives by teaching them how to manage their condition.
“I enjoy helping patients make positive changes in their lives and seeing them improve in their health,” she said.
