From Athletic Trainer to MS-SSR Student: Jensen Radley

In a small town in northern Nevada, Jensen Radley, LAT, ATC grew up playing multiple sports, with basketball being her favorite. Fast-forward to today, she is making an impact in the sports health care field.

Jensen attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and earned her bachelor’s degree in athletic training. While there, she immersed herself in a variety of experiences, including working with collegiate soccer players, multiple local high school sports teams, and in an orthopedic surgeon’s office.

“The reason I chose the degree in athletic training was because I saw a huge need for injured athletes to receive the proper rehabilitation, and I experienced that myself,” she said. “I wanted to see a variety of athletic training environments so I could hone my skills.”

Driven by her passion for caring for athletes, Jensen decided to pursue the Master of Science in Sports Science and Rehabilitation (MS-SSR) at Logan University, which she will complete in April of 2024.

“This degree really emphasizes and recognizes the importance of athletic training,” Jensen said. ”This profession is still new, and this degree helps recognize it as an allied health profession. The MS-SSR program is perfect for those wanting to continue their education and improve their skills while still working.”

Jensen currently works in an industrial setting for the Panasonic/Tesla Gigafactory as a certified athletic trainer. She also serves as the head athletic trainer for the men’s and women’s soccer teams at Truckee Meadows Community College. She maintains her athletic trainer certification through the National Athletic Training Association and state licensure in Nevada.

Jensen’s goals include teaching at a local community college and creating a pre-athletic training degree as well as continuing to work with sports teams.

“The MS-SSR program has given me more confidence as a health care professional, and it has allowed me to network with many unique individuals, expanding my views,” she said. “I am so thankful for the support Logan provides online students—especially the support of my academic advisor, which has been invaluable.”
