Our Director of Nursing at BrightStar Care of Gurnee

Jaclyn Webster BSN, RN

How long have you been a Nurse? I have been a nurse for over six years, and have been in the healthcare field for 15 years. I received my Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®? Prior to becoming a registered nurse, I worked as a CNA doing home health visits and live-ins, as well as working in various assisted and independent living facilities. I have also worked in HR and as a Staffing Coordinator for BrightStar Care. In the past six years, I’ve worked on skilled cases for patients that have needed 24 hour care in their home, executed flu clinics, and have participated in peer teaching. I’m licensed in IL and WI, am ventilator certified, have worked independently through the state of WI, and have worked for BrightStar Care. I have experience with the pediatric, young adult, adult, and senior community. I’ve been in the field as a CNA and RN for BrightStar Care and have worked in the office, giving me a seasoned idea not only of the individual needs of our customers and their family, but of our field staff as well. What aspect of your job are you most passionate about? I am passionate about people and being an advocate. I love hearing stories about individuals and really getting to know them, past and present, so the best care can be given. I am enthusiastic when it comes to teaching, be it patients, family, or staff. Everyone has a different style of learning, and I love to find creative, out of the box ways to enable understanding. I also have a passion for home health. Sometimes the scary and unexpected can happen, and when a person is receiving individualized care at home, they tend to feel more comfortable, which can facilitate healing, or give to a person more control and dignity in a situation they did not have control over. I provide A Higher Standard of Care for our BrightStar Care® clients by... Really listening and being flexible. I believe in doing what needs to be done so our clients are receiving the care and respect they need and deserve.
