Jennifer Stone may have been a normal person in Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place, but in the real world she's a super human with the ability to heal those she meets.

Since the star, who played Harper Finkle, left the hit show in 2012, she's divided her time between nursing school and the occasional role in indie films. And it just so happens the 27-year-old finished nursing school this past December, enabling the actress to join the health care workers who are on the "front lines" fighting against coronavirus. "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," she shares. "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."

Jennifer added the hashtags, "#worldhealthorganization #supportnurses #westayhereforyoupleasestayhomeforus #covid2020"

On Instagram she previously shared that landing her new job was "a long road of blood (mostly other people's), sweat, and tears (those were mine)" but she's enjoying the ride. And in the short time Stone has served as a nurse she says she's "definitely gotten some double takes and freak outs" from unsuspecting fans, but she wouldn't have it any other way!

Aside from the new career, not much has changed for Jennifer. She and her Waverly Place family remain close and last reunited in March to celebrate Bailee Madison. "A little Maxine for your Monday! Could not be more proud of @baileemadison and how much she has grown professionally and personally," she wrote alongside a photo of their reunion. "Always a blast to get the Wizards crew back together...even if we are missing a few key players!"
