Wound Care

Wound care of decubitus and pressure ulcers, surgical wounds, venous stasis ulcers are a few of my favorites. Although I'm not a certified wound care nurse, I've done education seminars on products and use of the wound vac.


I'm particularly proficient in difficult IV insertions and blood draws. .

As an RN of 35 years, I bring various experiences to my future employer. Over the years I've seeked out what I think are the interesting facets of nursing such as clinic nurse, travel assignment to the USVI, contracts in medical-surgical, oncology and post partum/NICU.

I'm proficent with my technical skills of IV access and wound care.

As a manager I'm fair, attentive and responsive. I've worked comfortably with many different cultures and have a happy manner.  I would be an asset to your team.
