MSN-Family Nurse Practitioner
Tiffani Bradbury, FNP-C, is an emergency care provider at Amberwell Hiawatha. She has extensive experience in multiple healthcare settings and has cared for a wide range of patients from infants through adults. She has a patient-centered mindset and a desire to connect with her patients on a personal level and involve them in their care.
Tiffani chose Amberwell Hiawatha because she wanted to serve in the emergency department of a smaller community. “I have experience in nearly every imaginable healthcare setting, and I’ve found fulfillment in all of them,” said Tiffani, “but my true passion is emergency care. The wide variety of cases we see in the emergency department is fascinating to me, and so when I spotted an emergency position listed on Amberwell’s website, I was excited to apply.”
Tiffani knew from the time she was in high school that she wanted to pursue a nursing career. “I’ve always wanted to help people; I’ve always had a caregiver personality,” she recalls. “What solidified my decision to go into nursing was caring for my injured mother when I was sixteen. After that, I graduated from high school, went straight into Missouri Western, earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing, and started working in healthcare immediately.”
Tiffani’s path to becoming a nurse practitioner has been diverse and purpose driven. “My healthcare journey began at a large children’s hospital, where I worked as an RN in the NICU,” said Tiffani. “Over the years, my roles included critical care transport, labor and delivery nurse, ER nurse, primary care provider for the homeless population, and more.” This range of experience has equipped her with a unique perspective, allowing her to approach patient care with empathy and a deep understanding of patients’ needs.
“I value building partnerships with my patients, ensuring they feel heard and understood throughout their healthcare journeys,” explained Tiffani. Her commitment to providing exceptional care shines through in her willingness to listen attentively to patient concerns and involve them in their own care decisions. “I strive to create a nonjudgmental environment where patients are active participants in their treatment plans,” she said. Tiffani often uses lightheartedness and her sense of humor to connect with patients and put them at ease.
Beyond her healthcare role, Tiffani is a devoted mother of three. She and her family love spending time outdoors, especially on their property, where they have various animals, including an eight-hundred-pound pet pig named Gracie. Tiffani’s favorite hobby is reading.
