How She Did It: Joyce Stovall, BSN, RN

Home > How She Did It: Joyce Stovall, BSN, RN

Joyce Stovall

Age:
45
Occupation: Transplant Coordinator
Location: Barnes Jewish Hospital, St. Louis, Mo.
Education: BSN, RN

Why she wanted to enter the field: To give back and make a difference in others lives

How she entered the field: My father was terminally ill in the ICU on the heart transplant list, and I was fascinated by the work and care I saw those nurses do. As a result, I found my purpose. I obtained my associate degree in nursing to become a registered nurse, and 17 years later I decided to return to school and advance that degree to a BSN degree. I chose the online BSN program at Barnes Jewish College Goldfarb School of Nursing to accomplish this personal goal. Doing so allowed me to advance my career from charge nurse in the operating room to a transplant coordinator, which requires a BSN degree.

How she paid for it: Student loan and out-of-my-pocket for the ADN. Tuition reimbursement, which also included a RN-to-BSN tuition scholarship allowing me to only have the expense of paying for books.

Most memorable experience thus far: Most recently, having the privilege in my new position as a transplant coordinator to assist in getting a team member I had worked with in a previous nursing role listed for organ transplantation. The joy I experienced in calling to inform them that we had a life-saving organ available for them is unexplainable! Also being able to help coordinate their post-operative care. That was extremely rewarding, and I would have turned a back flip if I knew how! I just love being a nurse.

Would she do it all over again: Absolutely, a million times over!

One career tip for others: The only thing standing between you and your goals is the story you choose to repeat to yourself of why you can or why you cannot accomplish them, because you will have what you say.
