Nurses Week is a yearly celebration beginning on May 6th and ending on May 12th that honors the nursing profession. Advantage Medical Professionals celebrates each day of Nurses Week by turning the spotlight on one of our very own healthcare heroes! Read on to learn more about Jeanette Ferrington, RN.
I will describe myself as compassionate, caring, and dedicated to my patients.
Just before I retired, I began regretting my decision to retire as I would not have a job. I had recently met two Advantage nurses, Melanie and Misty. They both encouraged me to try travel nursing as they loved it. I thought that I was too old to do travel nursing, but they made it happen. Now here I am and I’m loving it.
I was taking art lessons from a retired nurse, and she became my hero and my best friend. Her name was Camille.
I tell anyone considering nursing to go for it. Do it, just do it. You are never too old or too late – I was forty years old when I started nursing school. I will be eighty years old on June 16th, and I’ve had a very rewarding career.
My biggest achievement is still being mentally and physically able to do the job that I love.
