Tanya Jenkins

After receiving her nursing diploma from the Beebe School of Nursing in Lewes, Delaware, Tanya Jenkins, winner of an NEF Scholarship, began her nursing career as a summer camp nurse and found she had a love for pediatric primary care. From there she went on to work in an orthopedic and surgical unit at a rural community hospital. She is currently pursuing a University of Delaware Masters Degree in Nursing.   She plans to continue to live and work in rural areas and eventually go on to study in a DNP program. One of her ongoing goals is to develop more efficient standards of care in summer camp settings to improve health safety for the many children who attend summer camps each year.
