Assistant Professor of Nursing

Currently at Graceland, Professor Jonas is teaching Evidence Based Practice and will also be part of Health Assessment Lab.

This summer will be the exciting course as Professor Jonas will be able to teach obstetrics and work with students in clinicals. Dr. Jonas’ heart is in women and children’s care and she is looking forward to sharing my experience and knowledge with a whole new generation of nurses.

Caring for women at the time of childbirth is vital for the health of our communities as they are the backbone of our homes and families. The way they are treated and cared for at childbirth can strengthen their ability to trust themselves as a mother.

Our communities and world are built from women and families, Dr. Jonas says she has been privileged to walk alongside so many women and families on this journey. She is looking forward to instilling the same respect for this time in her students who desire to work in this field.

Outside of women’s health, Dr. Jonas truly loves nursing. Caring for people who are hurting with compassion and kindness has always been her goal.
