Therapy Center Student News: Jennifer Nuce, DPT Student

Jennifer Nuce’s hometown is all the way in Largo, Florida. She is currently in the DPT Flex program at The University of St. Augustine and graduates in August 2013. She recently completed her clinical internship with Therapy Center at Rio-Sol Nursing Home, but during this time she was also able to work at Hessmer Nursing Home and Colonial Nursing Home.

Here is what Jennifer had to say about her time with our team:

Why did you choose the field you are studying in? Since I took high school anatomy years ago, I was so amazed in how the human body works and repairs itself.  I wanted to be a part of that and felt physical therapy was the best way to help injured or deconditioned people regain their strength and abilities.

What is the biggest thing that you learned while on rotation with us? The biggest thing I learned while on rotation with Therapy Center was performing the initial evaluations and learning how to document electronically.

Favorite part of working with Therapy Center staff:  My favorite part of working with the Therapy Center staff is how supportive they’ve been and ready to lend me a hand as a student.

Anything interesting about yourself that you want others to know: Outside of school I enjoy Yoga, running, and spending time with my husband and two children, ages 8 and 5. Something interesting about myself you may not know is that I served in the US Army as a field combat medic in the 1990s and on top of being a DPT student, I am currently working as a PTA in a retirement community furthering my education.
