Jenneth B. Doria's professional career spans over three decades of nursing practice in acute and behavioral health care settings where she took care of individuals and families across the lifespan. From a small community hospital in Hawaii where she immigrated right after graduation to pursue 'matters of the heart,' her professional life has been deeply enriched by working with diverse populations in various practice settings (PACU, medical-surgical, OB, pediatrics, same-day surgery, mental health, and community health). At a point in her life and career when advancing to a higher level was very trepidating, she courageouly pursued graduate school to be a nurse educator. She believes that being a nurse educator can positively impact patient care by preparing competent and compassionate future nurses. She is very grateful to be able to integrate her role as an educator with being a change agent among minorities and underserved populations. She believes that nursing influence extends beyond hospital walls because it can be utilized to improve the quality of life of people both here and abroad.
