Jessyca Maddox joined National Park College in 2019 as full-time faculty in the practical nursing program. Jessyca started her nursing career as an RN graduate from National Park College in 2012. She went on to receive her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Arkansas Tech University in 2014 and is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Nursing Education/Administration (MSN) from The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Her nursing career began on a medical-surgical unit, but the majority of her experience has been spent as an oncology nurse. Over the last 7 years, she worked diligently to care for vulnerable patient populations and found a love for mentoring and teaching new nurses. Jessyca believes that delivering nursing care to a person is an honor and teaching future nurses of tomorrow is a blessing. She is excited to apply this principle to her teaching role to help shape the next generation of National Park College nurses. Outside of work, Jessyca enjoys spending time with her husband, Dustin, and two children, Hayden and Olivia. When not on campus or in clinical, you may find Jessyca exploring the beauty of Hot Springs’ lakes, bingeing Netflix, or adding items to her amazon cart!
