Faces of Peninsula Health: Meet Jenna Nelson

Peninsula Health Clinical Nurse Specialist Jenna Nelson.

Normally Jenna Nelson is caring for patients in the Frankston Emergency Department, but for most of this year she’s been doing what she does best – away from the hospital.

The Clinical Nurse Specialist leapt at the opportunity to play a part in our Covid-19 response, taking on the role of Associate Nurse Unit Manager at our drive-through Screening Clinic in Seaford over the past three months.

“It’s been an amazing experience to set up and coordinate a major testing location on a daily basis, seeing as many as 600 patients a day,” says Jenna.

“The team I have been working with have been amazing. Despite the long days on your feet and being outside in the elements, they always manage to smile under their masks, remain calm and maintain a professional manner.”

Thank you Jenna for caring for our community through Covid-19.

The drive-through Screening Clinic at Seaford is now closed. Got symptoms? Get tested – find your nearest location here.
