Angela Broughton received her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from South Dakota State University in 2018. She is accredited by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) as a Certified Nurse Practitioner (CNP). She currently works full time as a family nurse practitioner in an Internal Medicine Clinic as well as does outreach to various skilled nursing facilities and long-term care and assisted living facilities providing care across the lifespan. She is also a contracted hospice provider and works in the Urgent Care setting. In addition to her vast work experience as a CNP, Angela does have a variety of teaching experience. She obtained her Master’s Degree with a specialization in nursing education from Grand Canyon University in 2013 and used her degree to begin her academic career as an Assistant Professor of Nursing at a private university in Mitchell, SD. After deciding to return to school to obtain a higher degree and certification as a nurse practitioner, she then joined the academic world again by teaching Advanced Pathophysiology for a private university to graduate nursing students wishing to obtain their nurse practitioner degree. Angela’s interests lie in preventative medicine and healthcare across the lifespan as well as advancing the knowledge of graduate nursing students to help better care for our vastly growing population.
