As Nurses Month continues, we would like to recognize another of our wonderful nurses, Tiara Jordan. Tiara is an IDD facility nurse with RHA in Greenville, NC, who has been with RHA for eight years. Tiara began her passion for nursing at a young age following the footsteps of her mother. She volunteered at her local hospital and nursing home.
Tiara says that to be a good nurse, “communication is very important!” She also believes you need to have a good sense of humor while caring and advocating for your patients. Her relationships with the people she serves are immensely important to her — they become like family.
One aspect of nursing that Tiara finds rewarding is seeing people grow and being able to live independently. Her advice to someone thinking about entering nursing is, “You need to love nursing! You need to have a true passion for helping people.”
During Tiara’s free time she enjoys shopping, traveling and spending time with her family.
