Vanessa Ornelas is a Licensed Vocational Nurse specializing in pediatrics. Prior to joining the Newport Academy team, Vanessa worked at Children’s Hospital of Orange County (California) and Southern Orange County Pediatric Associates.

Caring for people, and especially children, is Vanessa’s passion, and her biggest influences in her work are her two sons. “When I think about them, I think about the care I would want them to receive by their nurse,” she says. “This motivates me to be the best nurse I can possibly be for my patients. Helping people in need brings tremendous joy to my life.”

Newport Academy…in her own words

“Working for Newport Academy has opened my eyes to a whole new world of nursing. I am so grateful for all the opportunities that have been presented to me, which have helped me to grow as a nurse and as a person. Newport Academy wants not only their clients but also their staff to succeed in life.”–Vanessa Ornelas
