Meet the Nurse

Robin Jones is the South Carolina Hemophilia Treatment Center Nurse Coordinator and a Nurse Navigator for the Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorder Clinic. She has worked in the clinic since receiving her ADN in 2001. Since then, she received her BSN in 2004 and a dual master’s in nursing and health administration in 2015.

Robin has received certification as a pediatric nurse and a pediatric hematology/oncology nurse. She is an instructor for the Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Biotherapy and Chemotherapy Provider course. Robin also provides infusion training for patients and their families. She does this in coordination with the SC Hemophilia Chapter yearly and during Camp Burnt Gin.

Robin has been a staff nurse at Camp Kemo since 2001 and for Camp Burnt Gin since 2010. Camp Kemo is a weeklong camp for children with cancer and Camp Burnt Gin is a camp for children with bleeding disorders. At Camp Burnt Gin, she holds a class at least twice during the week to help the children learn more about their diagnosis as well as train them on how to self-infuse.

Robin is a single mother to three children. She enjoys spending time with her family and crafting. She also enjoys being part of the hemophilia community and attending different events.

Once Upon a Time in Teendom....

In the Kingdom, Queendom, Theedom and Wedom of Teendom, "Once Upon A Time" is how the story still begins, but where it goes from there has a lot to do with teens, and young adults ability to take the reigns of their own experiences and tell their story from a place of confidence. What stories are teens told, by themselves or others, that might get in the way of their bigger story? In this incredibly interactive, funny, and engaging program, GutMonkey will play with the idea of how our story is often the one we need to discover, and guide participants through experiences that will help them find their story, share it in community, and use that story to navigate toward their "Happily Ever After."

Retreat activities will include a high ropes course and lots of time in the pool.
