faculty profile

Jason Jean   DNP, RN, FNP-BC



A Tennessee native since 1987 and affiliated with Vanderbilt Nursing since 1995. I have held various nursing roles as a: bedside critical care nurse, nurse practitioner (primary and cardiology care), researcher, administrator, and corporate executive (Cigna & HCA). I enjoy being a husband to my lovely wife and father to my four children, and find satisfaction in the great outdoors coaching baseball, sitting by the campfire, and fishing with my fly rod.
