Professional Summary
  • Hi!  My name is Jessica Claire.  I am a wife and a mother of 3 beautiful daughters; 4 years, 11 years, and 20 years and proud to be a Registered Nurse in the state of California.  I started my career by working at Loma Linda University Medical Center, Children's Hospital, as a PCA (patient care assistant) until I acquired my professional RN license.  Once I acquired my RN license, I was accepted in the RN Residency Program for LLUCH in order to sharpen my nursing skills as appropriate of the pediatric population.  For the first 6-7 years, I worked in an Intermediate/Stepdown Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.  Occasionally, floating to the PICU and to the Pediatric Cardiac and Solid Organ Transplant Unit.  I have also worked with RCRMC TAP/MAP department as a Per Diem RN; working in the Acute Peds Unit. Occasionally, I floated to the NICU Unit working with and assessing acutely and or chronically ill neonates.  I also floated to the Postpartum Unit working with and assessing well infants.  I am now an experienced licensed registered nurse with strong clinical and people skills; not only working with infants, children and adolescents, but, also working with their families.  I have approximately 9+ years experience in clinical settings providing nursing care to culturally diverse populations of pediatric and neonates.  I am an enthusiastic nurse with excellent people skills and ethic compassion. I am also highly motivated and believe in 100% in teamwork and integrity.
