Jessie Marks DNP, ARNP, PPCNP-BC
After graduating with my Doctor of Nursing Practice degree, I worked as a Pediatric Hospitalist in Eastern, Washington. This employment opportunity allowed me to gain experience in newborn management, with both late-preterm and term newborns. As well as experience with managing and coordinating a pediatric specialty infusion clinic, where I coordinated care between numerous specialties and sought to meet the needs of a diverse patient population with interprofessional collaboration (i.e. social work support, child life, etc…).
After 3 years of experience, I moved back to Western Washington, where I worked in a pediatric primary care practice as a rotating provider. As a rotator, I had the opportunity to work in 8 clinic locations throughout the greater Bellevue area. I was able to build upon my clinical skills and manage numerous well-child visits and same day access visits. I also had the opportunity to work evenings and weekends where I gained more urgent care skills (i.e. splinting, burn care). I worked in this clinical practice for 2 years. Due to COVID-19, I switched to another pediatric primary care practice.
I have taught within the Graduate Pediatric Track for 3 years, where I have taught in clinical lab and seminar courses as well as pediatric specific didactic courses. I have re-developed NSG 539, newborn management course. I have taught across all years of the DNP program (1st, 2nd and 3rd year) and have taught midwifery, family NP and pediatric NP students. I have also coordinated clinical placements for the Pediatric primary and acute care students during this time.
