Welcome HIP class of 2022!
Our summer Healthcare Immersion Program is now underway. We're excited to introduce our seven students -- a brilliant group of young people with diverse interests and aspirations for a future career in healthcare. Our 2022 program runs through August 5.
We’re excited to announce that Maggie Macy, RN is joining our team as our 2022 Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP) Coordinator.
Along with being a guide and mentor for student participants, the HIP coordinator is responsible for planning and organizing the program schedule, and managing day-to-day activities, along with administration, evaluations, and working with our Board and marketing teams as needed.
Thanks for a great CANP44!
Education is a key focus for us at JOF -- and it was a great experience to finally be in person again with friends and colleagues at the California Association for Nurse Practitioners 44th Annual Educational Conference in Pasadena.
It was a lively event filled with learning and networking -- including presentations on menopause and foot and ankle pain by our instructors Kathleen Geier, DNP and A.J. Benham, DNP
Thank you, Preceptors!
Our summer Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP) is in full swing -- and our college students are enjoying the experience of learning about health career options by shadowing clinicians. It’s those volunteer clinical professionals who make our program work, and we want to thank them all here:
Welcome HIP class of 2021!
We're excited to introduce our class of 2021, who recently began our summer Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP). This unique program provides college students with a unique, clinical immersion experience in healthcare as they shadow real healthcare providers (preceptors). As in 2020, we've modified the program a bit to accommodate COVID-19 health and safety protocols. As always, our students will only be observers in low-risk outpatient, orthopedic, elective care. and classroom settings.
This year's students are: Nicole Marquez, Sarah Ortiz, Cameron Thollaug, and Caymus Smith-Pierce. Our new program coordinator is 2020 HIP alum Mahnoor Yousuf.
Meet our HIP Coordinator, Mahnoor!
We’re excited to announce that Mahnoor Yousuf is again supporting our Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP) as a Coordinator.
If Mahnoor’s name seems familiar, it’s because she was Coordinator for the 2021 program, and was a student in the 2020 HIP program. She is a graduate of UC San Diego having majored in biochemistry and cell biology, with a minor in global health. She's currently applying to medical schools.
Now available: OPC Mini Courses
We’re excited to announce the latest addition to our line-up of Orthopedic Primary Care (OPC) continuing education courses for clinicians: Online Mini Courses.
We know that budgets and schedules are tight these days, so we created these four, 10-hour online modules – priced at just $65 each – to make it easier than ever to improve your skills and confidence diagnosing and treating common musculoskeletal conditions.
While the headlines have been full of COVID and the election of late, there’s one story that will likely stand out to California nurse practitioners: AB 890.
Assembly Bill 890 was signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom on September 29 and makes California the 23rd state in the U.S. to offer Full Practice Authority (FPA) to NPs. It goes into effect in January 2023, with implementation details to be developed over the next two years.
We're excited to introduce our class of 2020, who recently began our summer Healthcare Immersion Program. The program, which provides college students with a unique, clinical immersion experience in healthcare, continues this year, although we've modified it a bit to accommodate COVID-19 health and safety protocols. As always, our students will only be observers in low-risk outpatient, orthopedic, elective care. and classroom settings.
This year's students are: Mahnoor Yousuf, Roxie Wiblin, Christian Roy, and Sarah Shandy. Our program coordinator once again is Jacob Geier.
Our nurses are in trouble. You can help.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1.4 million health care workers — many of them nurses — were laid off or furloughed in April.
Our nurses are in trouble. Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, many nurses who treat patients living with muscle, bone and joint disorders are having their pay cut, or being laid off or furloughed. Orthopedic procedures have been canceled or delayed, and some medical practices have been forced to close.
We're the staff and volunteers at Jackson Orthopedic Foundation, committed to improving the lives of patients with musculoskeletal conditions through education, research and service.
