Amanda Bondurant, RNC-NIC, a neonatal intensive care nurse at Washington Regional Medical Center, recently received an ANGELS Award for Outstanding Service in Neonatal Nursing.

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) presents the ANGELS Award each year to a nurse who has devoted his or her career to the field of obstetrics and neonatal nursing.

Bondurant joined Washington Regional in 1994 and serves as staff nurse, mother-baby nurse, nurse educator and preceptor/mentor in the hospital’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from National University in Manila, Philippines, before becoming a registered nurse. She is pursing a master’s degree in nursing leadership and management through Walden University.

Bondurant achieved national certification in the field of Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing — earning the RNC-NIC designation — and is a member of the Academy of Neonatal Nurses.

The UAMS ANGELS program (Antenatal and Neonatal Guidelines, Education and Learning System) provides evidence-based guidelines for maternal-fetal and neonatal care in collaboration with physicians statewide.
