U.S. Sen. John Boozman has been touring healthcare facilities across the state in recent weeks to speak to frontline workers.
He also honors one of their own as a Healthcare Hero.
When Boozman was at UACCB on Tuesday to speak to White River Health System, he bestowed such an honor upon Jennifer Campbell.
Campbell is a Registered Nurse with White River Health System, Inc. She became a Licensed Practical Nurse in 2011 and began working for Batesville Family Practice. She continued her education in the ARNEC program at Ozarka College and obtained her Associates degree and joined White River Medical Center in March of 2015 as an Emergency Room nurse.
A desire to continue improving her skills led her to obtain her Bachelor’s degree in October 2019, while working full time.
A release from WRHS said, “Jennifer is a role model for both her co-workers and people investigating nursing as a career option.”
In 2019, Jennifer was chosen as the Ozarka College Alumni of the Year.
Campbell serves as the Trauma Program Manager, AR Saves Facilitator and Emergency Room clinical educator for White River Medical Center.
“While she wears many hats for WRMC, she did not hesitate to become the face of WRMC during the COVID outbreak in our eight county service area,” the release stated. “She has graciously served the community, patients, and staff of WRMC by taking ownership of all of the community drive-up COVID testing, as well as, employee testing when needed.”
Campbell is also recognized as the in house expert for all COVID testing. She has volunteered many hours for community events related to COVID. She has worked diligently with the ADH assisting with organizing community testing and providing education.
“All of this while still maintaining her dedication to the Emergency Department and our Trauma services and State Stroke programs,” the release stated.
