“My name is Heather Jones. I graduated in 2016 from the SAU Tech PN program. After graduation, I worked at a long-term care facility in East Texas before moving back home and working at an urgent care facility. Eventually, I left urgent care to return to my love for geriatric nursing at Silver Oaks Health & Rehab. However, due to the COVID-19 Virus, I recently resigned from my full-time position at Silver Oaks to go help work the front lines in New York. I became a nurse because my calling is to help others, so when I saw the need in New York, I knew this is where I was supposed to be. I’m at a long term acute care hospital with a 304-bed capacity, five floors, and two units on each floor. Tonight’s shift will make my first week here, and each shift I go into work as an LPN, I’m moved from one unit to another within the shift to cover the needs of our patients. The patients are very ill, and although it is a frightening time, I am thankful I can help. I absolutely love what I do as a nurse, and I plan to continue my education with SAU Tech in the Fall to complete my RN. ”
