Jane Skinner, RN, BN
Prairie Mountain Health, Brandon Manitoba
Jane Skinner is a Registered Nurse who has worked for 42 years as a Public Health Nurse. Currently she is the Regional Manager for Prairie Mountain Health’s COVID vaccine sites.
I have been a Public Health Nurse for 42 years in various settings. I started my career in the Northern part of Manitoba. At that time, it was a combined position of Public Health/Home Care and Primary Care.
We moved to rural southern Manitoba after three years, where I stayed with Public Health/Home Care until the program divided, and I stayed in the Public Health stream.
We then moved to an urban setting (Brandon) after three years, where I worked in various aspects of Public Health Nursing. I have been a Neighborhood nurse, Families First Supervisor, Reproductive Health Coordinator, Teen Clinic facilitator, and involved in Healthy Sexuality/Harm Reduction.
Throughout my career I have been involved with many community development and consultations, including the development of programs, overseeing these programs and participating in them.
I retired on July 31, 2020, however, when the pandemic started I returned to Public Health to assist. Public Health is the force behind us being able to return to a more normal life. I am currently the Regional Manager for all the COVID vaccine sites for our region.
