Meet Our Instructors
Tina Points, LPN
Owner & Instructor
Hi, I am Tina and I would love to take this time to introduce myself to the community. I am originally from Missouri and there I completed my LPN education at Mineral College but have been living here in Orange Park/Middleburg for over 20 years. I have worked extensively in Long Term Care, Ambulatory Care Clinic Settings and Orthopedics. I love teaching and precepting CNA, MA and nursing students and love teaching and helping students achieve their goals in health care. I started my health care career as a CNA before becoming a nurse and it was truly rewarding and life changing.
I have been married to my childhood sweetheart for over 28 years and have a 20 year old son who is in college to obtain an Engineering Degree. I have two Dachshund dogs named Maverick and Olive. Love to meet you all in person and hear about you and your goals!
