Nurses Week 2018 - Meet Med Couture Brand Ambassador Jason!
Posted in Blog

We are celebrating Nurses Week by featuring some of our amazing Med Couture Brand Ambassadors. Today, we are introducing you to Jason. Jason is a high school nurse and we can’t wait for you to meet him!

The meaning of my name, Jason, really speaks volumes to my being a Registered Nurse; Jason means, “to heal” and “gains happiness by helping others”. From the time I graduated high school I knew I wanted to join the medical field. Health professionals have always surrounded me, as many of my family are nurses, doctors, and therapists.

I began my nursing career as a staff nurse at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation on the spinal cord injury unit. At Kessler, I learned essential nursing skills and the experience really provided me with a great nursing foundation. Even through all the unpleasantness I experience due to many of my patients having been paralyzed from motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and gun shot wounds, I really connected with both them and their families. Many of the patients would generally have a hospital stay of at least two weeks, so I was able to build a relationship with them and see them progress and improve.

I recently transitioned to school nursing and ironically, I’m at the high school I graduated from. Even though the environment and patient acuity isn’t as intense, there are a wide range of issues that come up.

Nursing, especially for a male, is an amazing field to become a part of. The strenuous workload of nursing school is very challenging, but worth it in the end. As I advanced through my nursing career, I have realized that there is a nursing specialty for everyone: you just have to find it. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at chestermanj1@gmail.com.
