School of Nursing Graduate Program -Additional Questions

1. Please give a biographical account of yourself

My name is Jamie Robinson, RN, BSN received my Associates Degree in Hawaii and moved back to California to be closer to family. I’ve been a nurse for four years at Eisenhower Medical Center. Working on a neurological unit and knowledgeable of stroke symptoms, I was instrumental in advocating for a patient to ensure the patient received a CT scan and brain MRI to determine diagnosis of stroke. That experience was meaningful and pushed me to obtain higher education in order to do my part in saving lives. I am a past president of Rotary and I currently volunteer with The Flying Doctors Organization a volunteer based organization that provides free medical and dental services on an annual basis.  It was my work with the community that enlightened my heart and made me keenly aware I wanted more education to better benefit the people.

Over the last year I have found myself in a care giving role at home as a very close personal friend was in a severe motorcycle accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury requiring complete care. I was able to coordinate services with outside agencies as well as provide daily nursing care, wound care and medication administration. I learned so much over the last year and decided to pursue more knowledge as I realized how families and patients fall through the cracks of our current medical system.

2. Please give a detailed statement of your academic interests

I love my role as a Nurse and health educator, my long term goal is to expand my scope of practice to Nurse Practitioner to better understand and take care of those people in need.  In May 2017, I graduated LLU's BS program and currently I am applying to the Doctoral Program.

3. What contribution do you expect to make to the nursing profession after earning your graduate degree?

Due to the amount of uninsured and under-insured families where I live in the Eastern Part of
the Coachella Valley, I plan to work and offer health services for those patients as a Nurse
Practitioner, while collaborating with other agencies in the area that can provide needed services as well, such as clothing, food, and other assistance.

4. If you’re applying for the PhD program, what are your desired outcomes from doctoral study, and how do you expect your work at LLUSN to contribute to your long-term goals?

I am interested in the DNP experience, I feel it will better prepare me for deciphering research based studies, applying evidence based knowledge and strengthening my skills through advanced nursing practice. I look forward to improving patient outcomes and augmenting the healthcare delivery system.
