Jennifer M. Wheeler, RN, BSN
Jennifer began her career in the health world as an exercise physiologist and nutrition coach after graduating from Columbia University with a Masters Degree in Applied Physiology. While managing the Fitness & Wellness department in one of New Jersey's top health clubs, she realized her passion for clinical work and one-on-one patient interaction and decided to further her career as a registered nurse.
Upon graduating from Thomas Jefferson University with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Jennifer was the only student in her class to be hired directly into the Neuro Intensive Care Unit. Her clinical nursing background includes practice in neurology, neurosurgery, critical care nursing and oral-maxillofacial surgery, of which led her to achieve the highly regarded certification of CCRN, critical care registered nurse. At the Hughes Center, Jennifer will be by your side from the moment you arrive for your surgery, monitoring you during your surgery in our operating room, and throughout recovery and discharge to home.
