Jennifer Cisneros, a 2019 McKnight’s Women of Distinction Rising Star, served in the Army and has worked as a certified nursing assistant, an administrator in training, a unit clerk and an assistant administrator. Today she manages and directs the day-to-day operations as the administrator of Pennsylvania’s Williamsport Home’s skilled nursing rehabilitation center and short-term transitional care unit, including a memory care unit and an end-of-life care suite. In order to survive in skilled nursing long-term, providers will have to adapt to new payment models, she shared with McKnight’s. Employers also can support their staff by encouraging them to spend time with their families and taking time off, she said.

The platinum sponsor of the McKnight’s Women of Distinction program is PointClickCare. A full list of Rising Star honorees is here.
