JOHNITA JACKSON,
RN CLINICAL SPECIALIST

I was born in Philadelphia, PA and moved to Florida at the age of 10. I have always had a passion for helping people. I started my career in the healthcare field as a Medical Assistant for over 20 years. Over those years I worked for many physicians throughout Palm Beach County, FL. Becoming a Registered Nurse was my childhood dream and in 2006 I decided to return to school to pursue this dream. I received my Nursing Degree in 2009at which time I began my career in senior care as a floor nurse in a skilled nursing facility before being promoted to Nurse Manager for the Rehab Unit. It is in this role that I fell in love with caring for seniors. After 4 years as a nurse manager I accepted a position as the Health and Wellness Director for a 175 bed Assisted Living Facility. In this role I excelled as a leader. I am passionate about Nursing Leadership because I love to assist nurses in reaching their full potential and providing exceptional care to our seniors during their “Golden Years”. I am a mother of 4 young adult children. I currently reside in Port Saint Lucie, FL with my husband. I enjoy hosting gatherings for family and friends, cheering for the Philadelphia Eagles Football team and shopping for my daughter’s clothing boutique.
