Meet the Founder

The founder of CCNI has been an ICU Registered Nurse in a busy urban trauma center for almost two decades.

She is a Central Coast native, born and raised in that region. After college, she came back to her hometown, the Central Coast became her peace and sanctuary. 

The Central Coast has helped her build a wonderful life and she now wants to give back to the community.

It is now our founding mission and vision to give back to the Central Coast and beyond, guiding future nurses with compassion, caring, and helping hands.

“Being a nurse saved my life. If I can help people learn a skill, get their independence, learn how to help others in meaningful, skilled, and compassionate ways… then that’s what I’m going to do.” – Jillian, CCNI Founder

These include difficult and complicated admissions processes, tight competition, and inadequate education. Let us help you succeed.

Our nursing school offers online and hybrid training for a more holistic and convenient learning experience.
