I am currently working in the pain clinic at MUSC. I enjoy working with others and being a part of a team approach when taking care of patients. My future goal is to continue my education by pursuing my BSN and MSN. I want to broaden my nursing skills, knowledge base, and  am open to exploring other specialties. I believe that with my current experiences working with patients, physicians, and advance practice providers I will be an asset to any team.

Therapeutic Communication

Offering self, Use of open-ended questions, active listening, focusing, exploring, and giving information are verbal techniques that I use on a daily basis when working with patients. Whether it be in previous clinicals or at work.

Critical thinking

This is a skill that I continue to work at and feel it takes continuous work to be profiecient in. I am constantly trying to gather as much information I can when trying to address a problem, I am always objective, and I always use reflective thinking so as to improve on how to handle situations.

IV insertion/Blood draw

I have had a lot of experience with this working on the inpatient unit, as well as with school and a class I have had at MUSC. We occasionally would do IV’s in the pain clinic as well. I feel that continuously practicing will help me to become proficient in this skill which is one of my goals.
