Prior to becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse in 2018, Jessa volunteered in a long-term care facility for 2 years where she realized her passion for the Healthcare field. In addition to teaching the HCA program at Drake Medox College, she is also working as an LPN providing social services and nursing care in a long-term care facility.
Jessa strongly believes that to sustain a long and rewarding career in healthcare one must possess a genuine desire to help others. Her goal as an instructor is to share her knowledge and experiences to support her students to excel in their learning and professional growth.
Her advice to her students is:
Always respect each other and never underestimate one’s abilities. In big or small ways, you will touch someone’s life, and make a difference!
