GREENVILLE, S.C. (September 20, 2021) — Bobbi Kopp joins the Bob Jones University faculty this fall as an associate professor in the Division of Nursing in the School of Health Professions.
“Bobbi is a graduate of our BSN program and will be instructing students in assessment labs, community health clinical, and the nursing senior leadership course. She has a background in pediatric nursing, hospital facility accreditation and is a certified legal nurse consultant,” said Megan Lanpher, Division of Nursing chair. “She has expressed a great passion for impacting the next generation of students at BJU and I am really excited to have her join the faculty.”
Kopp earned a BS in nursing from BJU in 2012 and earned an MS in nursing education from Western Governors University in 2020.
Kopp started her career at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center as a neurology/telemetry nurse. She later worked as an adolescent psychiatric nurse at Copper Hills Youth Center in West Jordan, Utah.
While working as a nurse in Lakeview Hospital in Bountiful, Utah, she served as an adjunct clinical instructor at Davis Applied Technological College, supervising students in a clinical setting. At Lakeview, Kopp also served as assistant coordinator of AFIB and heart failure accreditation, creating policies and protocols related to new hospital-wide guidelines for heart failure and atrial fibrillation. From 2015-2018, she served as a nurse manager. In this role, she developed a compilation of homeless resources to help case managers improve patient outcomes and reduce hospital readmissions.
After a year at Memorial Instacare-Intermountain Healthcare, she became the owner and primary consultant for Metro Medical Legal Consulting providing attorneys with case reviews regarding medical malpractice and personal injury cases.
Kopp and her husband, Josh, have two children.
“I am extremely thankful for the God-given opportunity to serve and love on the nursing students at BJU,” said Kopp. “I hope that through my lectures and daily interactions with those around me, students and other team members will get a glimpse of Jesus and understand how his example of love and sacrifice drives the nursing care we are able to give for today and tomorrow.”
