Dr. Wampole grew up in Greenville, South Carolina and always had a great respect for Bob Jones University (BJU). Nursing was not her first career. She worked in business administration for 15 plus years, but she did not feel that she was doing what God wanted her to do. She received the “calling” to become a nurse after her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.
She went to nursing school with the hopes of becoming an Oncology Nurse Practitioner. However, while she was in nursing school, she found an interest in what her professors were doing; teaching future nurses. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of South Carolina Upstate. In December 2014, she completed her Master of Science in Nursing Education from Charleston Southern University. Her first full time nursing job was in High Risk Antepartum / Labor and Delivery at a local level one trauma center. During her time in L&D, she would work in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) when they needed help. She transitioned to NICU full time and works as a Level III NICU nurse. Now, she is a PRN float nurse for Women’s and Children’s Health and floats between High Risk L&D and the NICU. Occasionally, she works in the Cancer Center’s In-patient Oncology and Palliative Care PRN. In August 2015, she began working at BJU. Since working at BJU, she started working on her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) and by God's grace she completed her DNP in November 2018.
