    Haley Shelby

Haley graduated from University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2008 with an Associates Degree of Science in Nursing.  She has worked with children for 9 years.  During this time she was confronted with a variety of medical conditions that required acute care in the pediatric population.  Her experience in the pediatric field means Haley will prove a valuable asset to students at ACA.  Haley is married to her husband Mitchell, and their family consists of 1 son, 2 daughters, and 2 dogs.  Haley's favorite thing about being a nurse is wearing all the "hats" that fall under the "nurse" title and seeing the positive effect she can have on a patient and family, no matter the situation.
