About:

Amy Scamman began her nursing career at Welborn Baptist Hospital as a registered nurse in 1988. Recently working as a nursing instructor, she realized that she missed the opportunity of building relationships with her patients. “With each passing semester, the sense of something missing continued to grow,” said Amy. “After some soul searching, I decided to go back to school and become a nurse practitioner.” She earned her Master of Science in Nursing and her post-graduate certificate as a Family Nurse Practioner from the University of Southern Indiana in 2018. Amy chose to specialize in family practice so she could see patients of all ages in multiple settings. Having previously worked at Good Samaritan as the Director of the Emergency Department some years ago, Amy felt that coming back to care for patients here was the obvious choice. “Everyone here is very close knit and truly cares about everyone else,” she said. “So when the opportunity presented itself to come back to Good Samaritan and practice, it was a no brainer for me. It was like coming home.” Amy and her husband, Andy, have a daughter named Hannah who is currently a freshman at the University of Tampa. She and her family are avid hockey fans with the family split between favoring the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Amy and her husband also like to travel to Florida to visit their daughter at school when they can.
