My name is Jocelyn Ludlow.
I have been a registered nurse since 2000. For most of my years in patient care I worked in telemetry or something cardiac-related. In 2007 I returned to school to earn my Master’s in Nursing and with degree in hand in 2009, I began my career as a nurse educator.
For seven years, I taught in both Associate’s degree and RN to Bachelor’s degree nursing students at Bellevue College. I served with the team that developed the RN-BSN program there, which is fully accredited nationally, the second in the state to be offered in a community college setting and the first to be approved by the Washington State Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission (NCQAC).
At Bellevue, I primarily taught in the nursing skills lab, facilitated simulations and taught informatics content. I also developed and maintained a very modest simulation program there.
I have recently transitioned my educator role back to the clinical setting. I am a nurse educator at Valley Medical Center, where I provide education to the surgical unit and the Joint and Spine Center. I really enjoy being back in the acute care setting, supporting quality improvement and having a more direct impact on patient care.
I live in Washington State with my charming and patient husband. I have two grown children (a daughter and a son) and am the proud dogmom of Taz and I am crazy cat lady for our Tacocat. When I have time, I like to hike, jog/walk races and camp.
