The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) recently welcomed a new faculty member to the College of Nursing. Dr. Thuy Lam Lynch recently began her tenure as an Assistant Professor of Nursing at UAH. After earning her undergraduate degree in nursing from UAH, Lynch says becoming a nursing professor at the university feels like coming home.
Dr. Lynch was born in Saigon, Vietnam, and realized at a young age that she wanted to become a nurse after encountering the kind and caring nature of her own nurses during a hospital stay as a young patient. Lynch grew up in Huntsville, AL, and after graduating high school with honors she enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at UAH. Explaining her decision to pursue higher education, Lynch tells UAH.edu:
“I was inspired and encouraged by my hospital nursing director to pursue a Master’s degree in Nursing. I believe in life-long learning, so naturally I enrolled in a PhD nursing program at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). My studies in the doctoral program helped to shape my worldview and better understand the experiences of others.”
Lynch graduated from UAB in 2012 with distinguished doctoral student honors and a specialty in pediatric nursing. She is honored to be among the faculty at UAH and give back to the nursing program where her career started. This fall she will be teaching Mental Health Nursing in the undergraduate program at UAH.
