Nurse Practitioner Bio

Pamela James, AOCNP, BC, CN-BP

Pamela James is a board-certified Advanced Oncology Practitioner who worked with Birmingham Hematology-Oncology in the early 90’s as a nurse.  Pam on what inspires her to work with cancer patients:

“My inspiration and motivation come from a pact I made with my Heavenly Father many years ago after finishing my national boards.  This pledge placed a calling on my life to work in the specialty of Hematology/Oncology.  I have a deep passion to help and heal the hurting of Oncology patients (physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally).  This is a gift that was given to me, which I will not trade for anything.”
