About:

Wanting to do more for her patients, Amanda Dillon, AGACNP-BC, decided to go back to school to become a nurse practitioner. She works nights as a hospitalist nurse practitioner for ScrubDoc and is also in the internal medicine clinic of Drs. Avena and Gatchalian. “I knew I wanted to be an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner from my past experience in critical care,” said Amanda. “I think of it as a privilege being able to help patients and their families when they are enduring some of their sickest times. I enjoy working in the outpatient setting as well.” Spending most of her nursing career at Good Samaritan, Amanda knew this is where she wanted to stay and practice as a provider. She and her husband, Kurt, were both born and raised in Lawrenceville, Illinois where they currently reside with their two children, Jake and Taylor. Now finished with school, Amanda has free time to spend with her children. She is also looking forward to the warmer weather so she can go camping, fishing, boating and other watersports.
