Jessica Acosta
PGY1 Pharmacy Resident at St. Joseph's Hospital - North

Why did I choose to complete a residency?
My interest in residency developed during my fourth year APPE rotations. I was able to witness the impact that pharmacists have in the inpatient setting and how they apply the skills learned in pharmacy school to real life situations. I have a lot of goals for my career, and I know that completing a PGY-1 residency will help me achieve them.

Why did I choose St. Joseph’s Hospital – North at BayCare?
After having a rotation within BayCare, I knew that being a team member at any BayCare facility would help me obtain my dream job. I wanted to be a part of an interdisciplinary team whose mission is to provide high quality, compassionate patient care while exhibiting the values of respect, trust, and dignity within the community. I am proud to be a member of the St. Joseph’s North family!
