From serving in the U.S. Army to being a nursing student, Angelo John “Ajay” Jamora, RNC-MNN, CLC is pursuing big dreams to serve his community. Ajay, a student at Frontier Nursing University (FNU) already has a long history of providing care for those in the service.
He first served at Fort Gordon, Ga. as head nurse of the OB/GYN clinic and assistant head nurse for Family and Community Medicine. His career then took him to Honolulu, Hawaii, where he was the interim head nurse of AP/GYN and a clinical staff nurse in AP/GYN/MBU at Tripler Army Medical Center.
Since then, Ajay’s growing passion for nurse-midwifery has transitioned him into a totally new role: full-time graduate student. Ajay is in the Community-based Nurse-Midwifery Education Program (CNEP) Class 167 while he completes his Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). He spends his days working on coursework and preparing for clinical rotations.
He chose Frontier for its legacy of caring, excellence, and innovation in the field of nurse-midwifery and public health.
As a non-practicing nurse, Ajay has embraced the chance to share his passion for midwifery with others.
“Instead of talking about work to those around me, I get to talk about my education, and what that education means to me,” he said. “I get the opportunity daily to share my dreams of becoming a future CNM and all that entails with the profession and the steps I am taking, along with my classmates, on attaining that worthwhile dream.”
He has also immersed himself in the FNU community all the more.
“I realized that all FNU students from every corner of the world are doing this very same thing, every single day, all in our own way; that is an amazing and heartwarming thought,” Ajay said.
“FNU has the most supportive faculty, staff, alumni, and students that I have ever been a part of,” he said. “With so many around me rooting for me to succeed, I have no choice but to do so.”
With two years still left before completion of the CNEP program, Ajay is already looking ahead to post-graduate studies. He plans to pursue his Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in order to become a positive change agent in health care – not only bedside, but to his community as a whole.
In the meantime, Ajay continues to study hard to achieve to his dream career: nurse-midwifery.
