I recently completed my Associates degree in nursing at Trident Technical College and passed the RN-NCLEX. I currently work at MUSC specialty care West Ashley. 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. Although Orthopedics is a specialty that I enjoy working in, I am open to broadening my nursing skills and knowledge base and explore 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.

Nursing Prerequisites


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

During my last class at Trident, we were taught how to insert IV's and perform blood draws. I also took an Introduction to IV therapy class with MUSC recently. This is a skill I want to continuously improve on.
