Amber Jones, APRN-CNP, specializes in sleep medicine at Oklahoma Heart Institute (OHI) hospital. “I chose sleep medicine because we spend about 1/3 of our lives sleeping, so it is vital that we get the healthiest rest possible,” she said.
Amber describes working in sleep medicine as a journey and she wants to help patients not only achieve their goals with the knowledge and tools she can provide, but the motivation and support as well.
When it comes to staying healthy, she likes to remind everyone, especially her patients, that “small changes can add up to big results.”
Amber has years of experience working as a nurse practitioner, ranging from nearly five years in family medicine to 13 years in the NICU at Hillcrest Medical Center. She says, “I chose to get into health care because I wanted to empower people to take control of their health so that they can lead their best lives.”
Amber’s education includes:
• Master of Science in nursing (MSN) degree with a family nurse practitioner (FNP) concentration at the University of Oklahoma in Tulsa (OU-Tulsa), 2017
• Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) degree at the University of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City, 2003
When Amber isn’t working, she can be found enjoying time with family and friends, reading, exercising and traveling.
