Alissa Brown, BSN, MSN, RN is a clinical nurse educator from the University of Utah Health. She has been working in the health care industry for almost 12 years, and started her nursing career as a med-surg bedside nurse on an Ortho, Trauma, and Surgical Specialty Unit. It was through that experience in the med-surg unit where she discovered a passion for education and pursued a master’s degree. She is a lifelong learner and loves to teach. Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, she's not all work, and definitely enjoys play! She loves to travel and tries to plan as many vacations each year as she can with family and friends. Alissa loves to read, listen to podcasts, and geek out to documentaries and crime shows on the weekends. She's a total fair-weather fan when it comes to Utes Football, but will cheer in all the right places, or get mad when her husband tells her to during a game. Alissa is looking forward to conversations together on this AMSN podcast!
