Janet L. Coleman

After working as a critical care nurse in the hospital setting for more than 20 years, I decided to return to school to specialize in nursing education. As a result, I am now working as a patient Health Educator at two of Hunterdon Healthcare’s family practice offices – Phillips-Barber and Delaware Valley. My role is to help the patient identify their education needs related to their current medical condition (diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, asthma, anti-coagulation therapy, etc.). I then develop and deliver detailed education to the patient (and their loved ones) in order to help them manage their condition and minimize (or even prevent) complications. I feel honored and blessed to be able to do this type of work, because it allows me to combine my two loves – nursing and education.
