Title : Telehealth nursing - how far can we go?


The purpose of this presentation is to expressly show how the telehealth field is expanding and nursing is at the center of it. I feel that many nurses are frustrated and tired with what has become a daily norm within the brick and mortar. This presentation is to reinvigorate nurses on the changes in patient care that the pandemic has opened up for them. This presentation talks about my particular background and experience within the ever growing world of telehealth. I will speak about the level of experience and education needed to make the leap into the tech world. I also plan to explain how tech is the future of nursing and how exciting and pertinent it is within the nursing field. My experience is a testament that we can return to patient centered care, but outside of a traditional hospital setting. So why should bedside nurses make the switch?  I want bedside caregivers to know that quality care is attainable through telehealth. I will show how the tech used in telehealth is not obscure or far reaching. I will prove that work life balance is a real thing. I strive to prove that our autonomy is safe, our input is valued, and our experience is sought after.


Jennifer graduated from Carlow University with her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing in 2008. She immediately took an opportunity to learn about organ transplant with a world renowned team at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. After having her first son, she decided to change career paths and work in the field of Emergency Medicine. Jennifer has held all bedside positions from staff nurse to management within many different hospital systems and emergency departments. During the Pandemic, she decided to take a leap of faith and leave the bedside for the dynamic world of Telehealth Nursing.

Telehealth has been very inspiring to Jennifer as she has decided to pursue her Doctorate in Nursing Practice at the University of Central Florida. Personally, Jennifer lives with her husband and four children in Pittsburgh, PA.
