Hello! My name is Jana Bateman. I am one of your Health Science teachers at JHS. My healthcare background is 22 years as a Registered Nurse holding several different positions in a hospital. I began my nursing career as a floor nurse working on the medical surgical unit, intensive care unit, and emergency Department. After 3 years I moved into several different Nurse management positions - Trauma Coordinator, Infection Control/Employee Health, Nursing Director of the Cardiac Cath Lab, Environment of Care / Safety Officer, and Emergency Management Coordinator. In 2007 I accepted the position of the Chief Nursing Officer, which is the Nurse Administrator for the hospital, where I served in this position for 12 years. From this experience I learned the operations of the hospitals from the bottom up and I will draw from this experience to help you navigate the complexities of the health care environment.
