More About Jacobson, Joan
I began my nursing education at the Misericordia School of Nurisng and graduated from the University of Alberta with my BScN in 1997 and subsequently moved to Grande Prairie. I was employed at the QE II Hospital in acute care for 10 years and then made the transition to GPRC as a nursing instructor.
This will be my 8th year teaching in the BScN Program here at GPRC, and I currently facilitate tutorial classes in third and fourth year as well as clinical courses in second and fourth year. I have been very involved with the development and integration of our Simulation lab and high fidelity simulators within our classes and encourage you to come and check it out!
I completed my Masters Degree in Nursing with a teaching focus through Athabasca University in April 2013 and continue to peruse additional courses and programs to add to my knowledge base and enrich my career.
I enjoy staying physically active by playing volleyball in my 'spare' time! I am very proud to be a nurse and thoroughly enjoy teaching the future of the nursing profession!
