JAMIE M. Howder, RN, MSN, FNP-BC
Being a nurse is truly my passion. I started my career as a registered nurse when I was 20 years old. My career began as a registered nurse in the emergency department. Less than a year I was the charge nurse of the emergency department leading a wonderful team of nurses and working together with our doctors and multidisciplinary team. I loved emergency medicine. It was challenging, rewarding, hard work, and at the end of every shift worn out or not worn out I felt like I had made a difference in the care I provided to my patients. Whether it was holding the hand of a dying patient who had no family, to doing chest compressions to save a life, to helping assist birthing an emergency delivery of a newborn baby, the life of the emergency department was always changing. While working in the emergency department, I continued my education to become a family nurse practitioner.
In 2010, I graduated as a family nurse practitioner and started my career in cosmetic dermatology and medical aesthetics. As a nurse practitioner I am a licensed independent practitioner working under standardized procedures in a practice setting of “medical aesthetics, or cosmetic dermatology.” I provide nursing and medical services to individuals, families who seek ways to transform inner and outer beauty. In addition, I am able to diagnose and manage acute episodic and chronic illnesses. As a nurse practitioner I emphasize on health promotion and disease prevention. My services as a nurse practitioner include, but are not limited to ordering, conducting, supervising, and interpreting diagnostic and laboratory values, prescribing pharmacological and pharmacological therapies. As a nurse practitioner I also teach and counsel individuals and families on health promotion and disease process. As a nurse practitioner I continue to serve as a health care researcher, interdisciplinary consultant, and patient advocate.
When I am not working at Hospitality Skin Spa and Aesthetics, I do like to volunteer within the community. I like to sponsor and help out with several organizations including Fire and Burn Foundation, Inland Empire, Unforgettables Foundation, Boys and Girls Club. Bonne Meres Auxiliary of Redlands, Riverside community health foundation, Redlands Fire Department ladder truck fund, Rotary club of Redlands, Building a generation, West Coast Hooters, and much more.
