Jess Koedam appreciates all of the different ways that she has been able to help people as a registered nurse in her career.
She now is continuing that service as a new clinic nurse at Promise Community Health Center in Sioux Center.
“I was interested in Promise because I see it as a great opportunity to serve my community and continue helping people achieve better health,” Jess said.
Jess grew up near Hospers and graduated from Unity Christian High School in 2007. She earned her associate of science in nursing degree from St. Luke’s College in Sioux City in 2011. After graduating from college, Jess served as a staff nurse at Village Northwest Unlimited in Sheldon, 2011-16, and then made home visits throughout the region as an integrated health home nurse care coordinator at Seasons Center for Behavioral Health, 2016-18.
Her interest in going into the nursing field grew out of working as a certified nursing assistant during high school.
“I really enjoyed getting to know each person and helping them better improve their health,” Jess said.
