Nurse of the Month
Please join the Image Council of the Professional Nursing Organization in congratulating Hayley Bierman, APRN, as our Outstanding Nurse of the Month for May. Hayley graduated with her BSN from the UAMS College of Nursing in Hope and completed her Masters of Nursing Science at the UAMS campus in 2008. She now holds certification as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse in Adult Acute Care. Hayley began her nursing career at Arkansas Children’s Hospital on the burn unit; has also worked as an APRN in nephrology; and is currently seeing patients at the Infusion 4 Clinic at the Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy.
Hayley revealed that her greatest inspiration to become a nurse came from events that happened on 9/11. “I totally changed my life to become a nurse, so that I could do something positive in the world.” Looking ahead, she wants to continue to provide the very best patient-centered care. She also adds, “It is very easy to get lost in the paperwork and constantly changing work environments, but I try to encourage everyone to focus on the patient.”
When she is not at work, Hayley enjoys spending her free time with her husband and daughter. She states, “Nursing allows me to keep a fairly flexible schedule, opportunity to help others, and get paid to do it.” When asked about her favorite part of being a nurse, she replied, "In Infusion 4, we spend a great deal of time with patients completing chemotherapy cycles. Being part of a team that truly cares for these patients and families is very rewarding.”
We are pleased to honor Haley for all that she does for our patients here at UAMS. If you see Hayley around the hospital or in the clinic, please take a moment to thank her for her dedicated service. She is a great example of our commitment to provide comfort, hope, and healing with our patients and families.
