Amy Gamblin, MSN, RN-BC

President-Elect & Secretary, Georgia Association of Forensic Nurses

Mrs. Amy Gamblin graduated with Honors from Mercy School of Nursing’s Diploma Program in 1995. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) in 2012 and a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) with an emphasis in Nursing Education from Chamberlain College of Nursing in 2014. Mrs. Gamblin is currently enrolled in the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) programs at the University of South Alabama in Mobile. She has more than 24 years of experience as a Registered Nurse, all of which have been spent in the forensic nursing specialty and nursing education. Mrs. Gamblin is Board Certified as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and a trained Suicide Prevention Provider through the American Psychiatric Nurses Association (APNA). She is also a member of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society and the APNA, and she is a charter member of the Georgia Association of Forensic Nurses (GAFN).

In addition to her clinical practice experience, Mrs. Gamblin has worked more than eight years as a nurse educator in Charlotte, North Carolina and Savannah, Georgia. While in her MSN program, her practicum focused on the use of high-fidelity simulation in nursing education and facility training. Simulation prepares students and healthcare 

professionals to effectively communicate with patients, families, and colleagues. It also facilitates the development and maintenance of clinical and critical thinking skills in a non-threatening, supportive, and controlled environment. Due to the lack of opportunities available to nurses to develop specialized forensic nursing skills in communities across Georgia, and the nation as a whole, simulation is widely used and highly effective in training forensic nurses, including those who plan to work in the sub-specialty of forensic psychiatric and mental health nursing. Mrs. Gamblin brings a wealth of experience with planning and facilitating this type of training to GAFN.

 

In addition to her full-time enrollment in the DNP/NP program, Mrs. Gamblin currently volunteers to bring the psychiatric/mental health nursing services to a local victim service agency in Coastal Georgia. She is also highly involved in the Autism awareness campaigns and associated non-profits in her community. Mrs. Gamblin lives with her husband and two sons in the Savannah, Georgia area.
