Angela Douglass, MSN, RN, ACNS-BC
Senior Lecturer - Nursing
Angela Douglass has been a nursing educator at the Kent State University at East Liverpool for 13 years. She is a graduate of Youngstown State University, where she received her BSN, as well as her MSN.
Douglass started her nursing career at Southside Hospital. As an RN, she has experienced working in homecare, private duty, and outpatient hemodialysis. She was once the Patient Education Coordinator for Physician’s Dialysis (which later became Renal Care Group).
“I chose to become a nurse because it is a profession that allows me to help others in a very tangible way,” she said. “It presents new challenges and opportunities to provide comfort and support to others by healing the body, mind and spirit.
“Growing up, I always enjoyed the sciences and found nursing to be an ever-expanding career that would allow me many opportunities to grow, not only as a nurse, but as an individual. As a nurse educator, I have the pleasure of sharing my deep passion for nursing with future practitioners and making a difference in the lives of patients tenfold.”
Douglass has a deep commitment to nursing, whether she is educating future nurses or working as a nurse herself. “I chose to expand my nursing career at KSU because of the great reputation of the nursing programs KSU has to offer,” she said. “I enjoy the diverse student population we serve and am proud to be part of a fantastic educational institution that graduates the best RNs.”
When Douglass is not working with patients or future nursing students, she spends time with her husband and 8-year-old daughter (“the love of our lives!”), along with their beagle rescue dogs, Max and Rosie. She also takes spinning classes at the YMCA and enjoys finding good recipes and crafts on Pinterest to share with her family and friends.
