My personal philosophy of nursing is based in the belief that nursing is the culmination of science, skill, art, and compassion that is centered on the objectives of caring for individuals, families, and communities.

My goal is to join an organization where I can contribute with my current knowledge while being exposed to an environment with exponential growth potential while utilizing my core beliefs and philosophy in the true rooted meaning of nursing.
