Faculty Profile

Brandy Beazley
Assistant Professor
Bachelor of Science Nursing

I began my nursing career in 2005 after completion of the first year of UCSF's MEPN program. From 2005-2009 I worked at UCSF Medical Center on a kidney, liver, and pancreas transplant unit while completing my master's degree in Advanced Community Health and International Nursing. After four and a half years as a bedside RN, I left UCSF to start my journey as a nurse educator at Samuel Merritt University. My interest in nursing was sparked by a love of science, a dedication to social justice, and eight years of experience as a veterinary technician. I  enjoy spending time with my family, listening to music, eating good food, dancing, and being outdoors.
