About Me

30740605_10155484461607371_9054830837190623232_oMy 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 simulati

ons 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 am also a nursing PhD student at Washington State University.   Read more about my research interests here.

I live in Washington State with my charming and patient husband. I have two grown children (a daugh

ter 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.
