GREENVILLE, S.C. (September 18, 2019) – Deborah Jones joined the Bob Jones University faculty this fall as an assistant professor in the Division of Nursing in the School of Health Professions.

Jones earned an AAS in general business from BJU in 1998. In 2016, Jones earned a BSN from Liberty University and, in May 2019, an MSN with a clinical nurse leader (CNL) concentration from the University of South Carolina Upstate’s Mary Black School of Nursing.

“Debbie brings to our program a high degree of clinical expertise and a close connection with our local nursing community that will further our ability to provide outstanding clinical experience for our students,” says Megan Lanpher, chair of the Division of Nursing.

Since 2013, Jones has served as a staff nurse at North Greenville Long Term Acute Care Hospital at Prisma Health (formerly Greenville Health System). She performed charge nurse duties which included staffing assignments, care coordination, and family interactions. Jones also served as a nurse preceptor. In this role, she helped acclimate new nurses to the unit.

While working as a staff nurse, Jones served as a laboratory coordinator in the BJU nursing division for several years. As a laboratory coordinator, she served as a clinical instructor, managed laboratories and course requirement completion checks and presented workshops as a guest lecturer. This semester, she will teach Foundations of Fundamentals and Fundamental Medical-Surgical classes.

Jones and her husband, Jeremy, have two daughters. They are members of Grace Baptist Fellowship.
