For UC Davis Health Emergency Department nurse Jeremy Veldstra, his job is a perfect fit for his personality. A restless and energetic “adrenaline junkie” who thrives on new situations and challenges, he loves that he is always learning things at work. And as a former high school science teacher, he enjoys working with nursing students and residents.
In celebration of Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday, 2020 is the Year of the Nurse. Beginning on National Nurses Week (May 6-12) and continuing throughout the year, a special blog will feature the stories, memories and motivations of UC Davis Health nurses.
Hear their words, and get to know why and how they invest such heart, passion, expertise and commitment in their life-changing work.
