Objective

My objective is to provide compassionate, patient individualized care in a healthcare setting that values trust, hard work, and excellence and leadership in the field of nursing no matter how large or small the task. I strive to be a patient advocate and provide patient education in order to increase patient compliance in  order to acheive positive outcome as well as leading others in patient care to do the same.

Summary

 I began my journey in nursing in 2011 as an LVN and have since achieved a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. I have been in long-term and acute care and love them both and am always wanting to learn more! I value the leadership role in an industry where every decision is critical in acheiving positive patient outcomes as well as influencing the practice of other healthcare professionals.
