NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sonja Wynn, BSN, RN of UF Health Jacksonville has been selected to join the Nursing Board at the American Health Council. She will be sharing her knowledge and expertise in Nursing, Hemodialysis, and Healthcare Management.
With over forty years in the healthcare industry, Mrs. Wynn serves as a crucial asset at University of Florida Health Jacksonville. UF Health is a not-for-profit hospital affiliated with the University of Florida Health Science Center. UF Health has campuses in Jacksonville and Gainesville Florida and includes nine institutes for research, six health colleges, two specialty hospitals, two teaching hospitals as well as offering comfort, healing, and educating the community using the latest treatments and technologies. Since joining the staff in 1996, Mrs. Wynn’s day-to-day responsibilities include: new nurse preceptor, imitating and maintaining professional standards, and high-quality patient-centered care in the treatment of acute and chronic hemodialysis patients.
In 1979, Mrs. Wynn earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Hampton University and actively provides education to the Jacksonville community about risk factors of uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes which leads to kidney disease.
As a child, Mrs. Wynn knew the field of nursing was her calling as she has always desired to be a caregiver since taking care of her ‘baby dolls’ when they were sick. Her level of success can be attributed to her dedication to hard work and her commitment to compassionate care.
Looking towards the future, Mrs. Wynn hopes to grow both in her professional and personal life. She is currently teaching new nurses on the importance of community outreach so she can pass on the ‘torch’ of kidney disease education.
When she has free time she enjoys practicing yoga, riding her bike, traveling, and exploring exotic places and learning about new cultures and their food.
