She went on to earn her master’s degree in Nursing with a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner concentration at Walden University in Minneapolis, MN.
“I had been working at AdventHealth since March of 2020,” Bentley shares, “Due to my experience in my role as an RN, I wanted to continue working with AdventHealth as I advanced in my career as a Nurse Practitioner. I feel like I am with a family of like-minded individuals who have the best intentions and desires to improve the health of our community.”
Bentley has a passion for caring for those with behavioral health and addiction issues. She strives to provide compassionate, whole-person care to her patients with every interaction. “I encourage my patients to share their concerns, questions, and thoughts,” Bentley says, “Each patient/provider interaction is an opportunity for collaborative communication towards the goal of health improvement.”
“Amanda has been focused on meeting the mental health needs of our community from the moment she joined our team. With the completion of her PMHNP, she is taking this commitment to the next level on our Behavioral Health team. We are excited to see the impact of Amanda’s focus on whole-person care on the lives of our behavioral health patients and their families.” shared Christy Sneller, MBA, AdventHealth Hendersonville Vice-President of Physician Services and Chief Practice Officer.
