Professional profile

With over 26 years of experience, I have attained a significant amount of diversified nursing skills. My nursing career began by obtaining a license for practical nursing at age 21, then later the professional license as a registered nurse along with the most recent accomplishment, a master’s degree in nursing that I acquired in May of 2018. While the years of nursing in geriatrics, primary care, education and managerial roles extended my abilities as a nurse, the ability to conform and achieve measureable success was and is a necessary attribute for the ever-changing profession of nursing.
