Jeremy Hutson

Class of 2013
Program: Nursing

One of Jeremy Hutson’s earliest childhood memories is having heart surgery when he was just 3 years old. He does not remember fear or pain. Instead, he recalls the outstanding care he received from his nurse during his 10-day hospital stay. This memory would inspire him to make a radical career change into healthcare at age 40.

After high school, Jeremy spent 15 years in a career as a professional dancer; he also worked for six years as an operations manager for a large hotel chain. At age 40 he decided to go back to college and pursue his dream job: nursing.

Jeremy took prerequisite courses at Clackamas, earned an EMT certificate, and worked for two years as a paramedic before being accepted into CCC’s competitive nursing program. Jeremy founded the CCC chapter of Nursing Students Without Borders as well as a Men in Nursing club. He was  a member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society, did extensive volunteer work, and helped teach other Allied Health Students.

With an associate’s degree in nursing from Clackamas, Jeremy is transferring OHSU for a bachelor’s degree in nursing. He is on his way to his dream career as a public health nurse.
