Though the RN once imagined moving on to pediatric nursing or working in obstetrics and gynecology, much of Jones’ clinical career has been spent working with cardiac and respiratory patients. “I do have a particular passion for that particular type of patient,” she said. Jones continued her education, completing her master’s degree in nursing education at Walden University in 2014. She came to Ivy Tech as an assistant nursing instructor in 2010. Working her way up the ladder, she was named assistant department chair in 2015 and this school year assumed her current duties as department chair. The mother of two daughters, ages 11 and 13, credits much of her success to the support of her family. “My husband is constantly supportive of my dreams and them coming to fruition,” she said. An advocate of the lifelong learning necessary for a successful nursing career, Jones is not prepared to rest on her laurels. Her next step, she said, might be to become a certified nurse educator. Though none of Jones’ students was made available for an interview, those who submitted Jones’ nomination for the award said she “is a living example of how to be a therapeutic communicator and recalled how Naomi would make herself available at any time for her students,” according to a prepared statement by the college.
