Joanne H. Abegglen; family nurse practitioner track; FNP specializing in pain management, ENT and women’s health; Zion Pain Management, owner and operator of Advanced Clinical Services; Washington, UT. Joanne is also a retired associate teaching professor in the BYU College of Nursing.
My experience with BYU is integrated in everything I do. I currently do primarily pain management. For 7 years before that I did ENT. I also have my own business where I have done per diem work, contracted work and home/assisted living visits. It has allowed me to address my children and grandchildren’s health care needs in a major way. My degree from BYU has in so many ways influenced who I am today. It allowed me to “Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve.”

I have realized as I have been working how well prepared I was from my education at BYU. I especially have used what I learned in my acute care semester since I work in the ER.
Jane H. Lassetter (AS ’81, BS ’98) PhD (OHSU), RN; health care systems administration track; associate professor in the BYU College of Nursing; Provo, UT. Jane is working on a graduate certificate in healthcare ethics from Creighton University. She was recently inducted into the Western Academy of Nursing (2015) and served as an Alcuin Fellow (2011 to 2014). One of her favorite hobbies is caring for the hummingbirds that visit her house each spring and summer; sometimes one of them will need a bit of nursing care, and she tries to help out. Otherwise, she feeds them homemade nectar, plants hummingbird-preferred flowers, and just enjoys them.
My education at BYU opened the world to me. There is no way to fully express my gratitude for the blessings that have come as a result of my BYU education.
