Nurse Spotlight: Jessica Elder

Jessica-ElderIt’s Nurse Week! And, one of my favorite things to do each year is to spotlight some of the AMAZING nurses we have working at Pella Regional. First up… Jessica at Medical Clinic in New Sharon!

Jessica has worked at Pella Regional for about 4 years starting as a new graduate in the Medical/Surgical Unit. When the Medical Clinic in New Sharon opened in 2016 she switched roles as she lives in New Sharon and wanted to try a new side of medicine and broaden her nursing skills.

“When I was young, I was in and out of a lot of hospitals and always admired the nurses,” said Jessica. Now, she is helping people in the medical clinic by making their day better, putting a smile on their faces and helping them to get over their fear of going to the doctor.

During school and through her clinical rotations, Jessica felt like Pella Regional stood out for treating employees well and a positive rapport between staff members. “I enjoy the smaller medical clinic. It’s more laid back and I feel like we are able to spend more time with our patients,” said Jessica.
