“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
Jamie Yang, RN, MS, CCRN
Jamie graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Nursing from California State University, Fresno in 2006. She found a passion for critical care while working as a Nursing Assistant in the Level 1 Trauma Center ICU at the University Medical Center in Fresno. Shortly after graduating from nursing school, Jamie began her career as a new graduate at Sutter Health in Sacramento in the Cardiothoracic ICU. During her time there, she cared for postoperative cardiac and thoracic surgery patients. She joined the Medical ICU at UC Davis Medical Center in 2008 and acquired a great amount of experience caring for a multitude of complex patient populations. She has had several opportunities to mentor and precept nurses and student nurses in critical care, which aspired her to take a role in leadership. Currently, Jamie is an Assistant Nurse Manager in the Medical ICU. She obtained a master’s degree in Nursing and Health Care Leadership from the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis in 2020.
One of the many things Jamie enjoys doing is providing guidance and support for nurses to provide quality nursing care to patients in critical care. She also likes to encourage younger generations in pursuing a career in healthcare to promote diversity and expand their knowledge of understanding medicine and the healthcare system itself. Jamie is an HNA member who continues to support our Hmong community by promoting health education and addressing the disparities.
