Tao Zheng, MN, RN, CCRN, PCCN, a foreign student with a three-year degree from China, fell in love with Seattle but was at first hesitant to take nursing training because science classes had always scared him. But after his nursing assistant experience at South Seattle College, he also fell in love with nursing and chose North Seattle College for his education because the competitive admissions process guaranteed he’d be studying with other achievers. Now an instructor in the North program, he also works at University of Washington Medical Center.
Dr. Kristen Jones Interview
You just moved to Seattle. Where were you before?
The college where I worked was Flathead Valley Community College in Kalispell, MT. I lived in a little town called Whitefish, right at the base of Big Mountain Ski Resort. It was great; we could be at the chairlift in 15 minutes. I worked at the community college for about four years. I was vice president of both Instruction and Student Services, since it was a smaller college.
How do you like Seattle so far?
