Dorothea Jattan, RN

Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Intern

Dorothea Jattan, RN is currently a Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing student intern at Jacksonville University.  Through Dorothea’s internship she aims to blend the skills she’s already acquired as a trauma unit nurse with the unique skills of compassionate counseling.  

Dorothea’s desire to help others is derived from her experience growing up on a farm in the country and being of service, especially to the farm animals.  She took pride and great responsibility in being able to help those who were weak or sickly.  That pride grew into a passion to work with people as a registered nurse and she has done so for the last 10 years.  

Recognizing that she had more to give, Dorothea began to explore other ways that she could be of service.  Her explorative journey has brought her to the doorstep of mental health counseling with a specific interest in holistic care through herbalism and food.  Dorothea believes that health is wealth.  She aims to provide a safe space for you to be honest, so that you and her can discuss in a collaborative manner how to achieve and maintain your best mental health.
