Q&A With Jesse

What is your 2015 New Year’s Resolution?
I want to challenge myself to do one thing every week that forces me to grow  outside of my comfort zone…including attempting to use a password other than the word  “PASSWORD.”

Why did you decide to volunteer your time to OAAPN?
Advanced practice nursing is something that I am very passionate about and it  is important to me to protect the posterity of this role. I want to use this  passion to help further strengthen and cement the role of APNs so that we are  able to continue to grow and develop our abilities to better serve those around  us.

What is your proudest professional achievement?
In 2013 Youngstown State University’s Nursing Department awarded me Alumni of the Year.
