Wizards of Waverly Place Jennifer Stone Registered Nurse

Jennifer Stone touched millions of people’s lives as Harper Finkle in the beloved Disney Channel show, Wizards of Waverly PlaceNow the Disney star is off to leave her mark on people’s lives in a whole new way.

The Disney Channel alum has joined the ranks of first responders as a Registered Nurse (RN), ready to help face off against the pandemic herself. She shared her ongoing mission with her followers by sharing a picture of her medical badges as part of World Health Day.

In her post she said the following:

“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.”

“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 captioned the shot, alongside the hashtags “#worldhealthorganization #supportnurses #westayhereforyou❤️pleasestayhomeforus #covid2020.”

For many Disney fans, a star’s life after their show is complete is either a mystery or mostly surrounded with controversy. It is a breath of fresh air to see a Disney Channel alum become successful and dedicated to not just a life outside of the entertainment industry, but to a life caring for those in need.

But the former actress’s more loyal fans would already know about her new career path. In December of 2019, Stone shared her graduation day with her Instagram follower staying “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!”

Jennifer Stone did not have a Wizarding role in Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place. Her character, Harper, was one of the few mortals that knew wizards and witches existed. But was sidelined for most of the show. Now after years of schooling and hard work she has some powers of her own. We cannot wait to see all of the good things she does in her new role.
