AceShowbiz - Many celebrities have been taking action in the midst of coronavirus crisis through donations, but Jennifer Stone is taking hers to the next level. On Tuesday, April 7, the former "Wizards of Waverly Place" actress announced her plan to join the front lines in the fight against the global virus as a registered nurse.
The actress, best known for her role as Harper Finkle on the Disney Channel series, made the revelation as she celebrated World Health Day. Uploading an Instagram photo of her three different ID badges, she shared, "A very good friend of mine (@maiarawalsh ) pointed out to me that today is #worldhealthday. It is also the day I went from a volunteer, then a student nurse, and now an RN resident."
In the same post, the 27-year-old further opened up about her immediate goal for her new career. "I just hope to live up to all of the amazing healthcare providers on the front lines now as I get ready to join them," she confided before adding a number of hashtags which include "worldhealthorganization," "supportnurses," "westayhereforyou," "pleasestayhomeforus" and "covid2020."
Jennifer completed her nursing school in December 2019. At the time, the "Mean Girls 2" actress turned to Instagram to share, "It's been a long road of blood (mostly other people's), sweat, and tears (those were mine) but I can finally call myself a nursing grad! Now to start studying for NCLEX!"
While Jennifer got ready to join the front lines, her "Wizards of Waverly Place" co-star Selena Gomez has provided support to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's doctors and nurses by donating masks and ventilators in late March. Days later, she pledged to give away "$1 of every order in [her] official store" to the Plus 1 COVID-19 relief fund when announcing the release date of "Rare" deluxe version.
