Molada Brand earned a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from Louisiana State University in May of 1978. She later earned a Diploma in Nursing from Our Lady of the Lake College in December of 1986. She earned a Masters in Nursing in Healthcare Systems Management from Loyola University in May of 2012.

Ms. Brand has been a member of Sigma Theta Tau since her graduation from Loyola. She is also a member of the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses. She is currently certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Basic Life Support and Neonatal Resuscitation. 

Throughout the years in her nursing career, Ms. Brand has held nurse management roles in the form of nurse manager and charge nurse. Although she did work in the pediatric intensive care unit for approximately three years, the majority (27 years) of her career has been focused on maternal newborn care, primarily obstetrics. She is proficient in labor and delivery and enjoys mentoring new nurses. 

Ms. Brand is interested in many nursing research topics, particularly the challenges encountered by the age/experience differences of nurses working together in the present work climate.
