SIOUX CENTER, IOWA – Jenna Wynia dreamed of becoming a nurse since she was in kindergarten.
She knows that sounds cliche, but she grew up being exposed to the health-care field due to family members who needed the services. Therefore, she wanted to be that person who could help people in a time of need.

at Promise Community Health Center in
Sioux Center. She wanted to go into the
nursing field since she was a child.
Now an eight-year veteran in the nursing profession, she is excited to help people as a new clinic nurse at Promise Community Health Center in Sioux Center.
“I hope to bring a positive attitude, a smiling face and a compassionate heart here to the people who attend Promise CHC and to my coworkers,” she said. “It’s a wonderful organization to have here. I am honored to be chosen to work and serve here.”
Jenna grew up in Momence, IL, and graduated from Covenant Christian High School in DeMotte, IN, in 2007. She then enrolled at Dordt College in Sioux Center, where she earned a bachelor of science degree in nursing in 2011.
She worked as a nurse at Floyd Valley Healthcare in Le Mars for eight years, February 2011-March 2019, in a variety of roles, ranging from caring for laboring and postpartum moms to emergency patients. For the last two years, she served as a night shift supervisor and float to wherever she was needed.
She now is eager for her new role at Promise.
“I am excited to be serving in the community that I am a part of and living in each day,” Jenna said. “I am excited to see patients and watch them grow throughout the years. I am excited for the variety that will come each day – the well-child visits, the acute illnesses and the managing of chronic conditions.”
