Perioperative Master Clinician
Adult Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist
San Antonio, TX
Nursing involves providing holistically, safe, quality care of a patient with three pillars in mind: education, attention to detail and effective communication. I believe nurses must constantly educate themselves on what the best practices are and share this information with the patient and healthcare team. Paying attention to detail involves listening to what is going on in a patient’s life and understanding exactly what the healthcare plan is. A nurse demonstrates effective communication if they are advocating for the patient in a clear professional manner either orally or in writing.
