Amanda Coyle is a proud Brockport alumna. She received her BS from The College at Brockport in Communication as a traditional undergraduate student. Over a decade later, she returned to Brockport as an adult student, graduating Summa Cum Laude, with her baccalaureate degree in nursing. She then attended the University of Rochester School of Nursing for a combined nursing master’s and doctoral program of study. She was the grateful recipient of both the Helene Fuld Scholarship and the Loretta C. Ford Fellowship.
Ms. Coyle received her master’s degree in nursing in 2006 and is nationally certified as a family nurse practitioner. Clinically, she has worked in a variety of settings, including acute and primary care, in both rural and urban locations.
She recently completed her first draft of her doctoral dissertation and hopes for a successful dissertation defense this academic year. Her research was a focused ethnography of those without health insurance in the Rochester area who sought health care in a center that provided many services for the medically uninsured.
She joined the faculty of the Department of Nursing in 2013 and is teaching in the RN to BSN program.
Ms. Coyle married a Brockport alum. They have three children, all of whom attend college full-time. Two attend The College at Brockport. Ms. Coyle is thrilled to be back home at The College at Brockport, working with faculty who have inspired her throughout her nursing education.
