My professional goal is to obtain a nurse practitioner position where I will be helping others to improve their overall health and well-being. I want to work as part of a team who puts patient care first and who promotes collaboration to provide the best outcomes for their patients. I have a passion for healthy living and I strive to live the lifestyle I promote. I would like to be working with families within a community by providing evidence-based practices, promoting health and improved quality of life, preventing illnesses and injuries, managing chronic conditions, resolving acute illnesses, and improving psychosocial health. I have clinical experience working with families from many different backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities, beliefs, socioeconomic groups, and stages of life. I believe patient education is one of the most import aspects of my role. I’m determined and willing to take the time and effort to be a great nurse practitioner for the families and community I will be serving. I always strive to do my best in all areas of my life. I am diligent and have taken opportunities throughout my career and education to increase my knowledge, experiences, and skills. I can learn new concepts and skills quickly and effectively. I am honest and trustworthy with values based upon patient centered care. I am quick to listen to instruction and I accept correction as an opportunity for growth and wisdom. Throughout my education and nursing experiences I have improved my skills in time management, stress management, self-confidence, leadership, patient education, active listening and empathy. I would be honored to discuss a job to collaborate with you and your team to improve the overall health and quality of life of your community.


RN & Research Coordinator

Jan 2014 – Dec 2017, Precision Spine Care, Tyler, TX

I was the research coordinator for many clinical trials, including randomized controlled trials and one ongoing device registry, at our site. I was responsible for educating patients about clinical trials for which they were considering, ensuring study protocols were followed, promoting patient safety, collecting and entering data, charting patient visits in the EMR (eClinical), and collaborating with the principal investigator and other providers and staff who were involved in the care of the patient. I effectively collaborated with the hospital pharmacists for storage and accountability of medications for drug studies, as well as, the hospital staff for scheduling study procedures and following study protocols.

In this role, I became exceedingly more confident in my roles as patient care advocate and evidence-based practice provider. I greatly improved my collaboration skills and learned the dynamics of outpatient care.

I left this position during my final year of the FNP program due to the number of clinical hours required.


Full-time Jun 2012 – Dec 2013, Part-time Jan 2014 – Dec 2014,

East Texas Medical Center, Tyler, TX

I managed the care of five to six patients per shift who had acute cardiovascular conditions. This also included caring for patients following cardiovascular surgeries and procedures, such as cardiac bypass, cardiac catheterization and stenting, pacemaker implantation, etc. This role required collaboration with physicians and other team members, recognizing and prioritizing patient needs, advocating for patient safety and their best interests, improving time management skills, honing-in on charting patient care in the EMR (Epic), and excelling in knowledge of cardiovascular and acute nursing care.

I left this position to take the above position at Precision Spine Care. I desired daytime hours and an outpatient care setting at that time.

Nurse Tech

Dec 2010 – May 2012, East Texas Medical Center, Tyler, TX

I provided basic patient care duties such as assisting patients with activities of daily living and aiding nurses in meeting patient needs. I floated to different units within the hospital where aid was needed.

I was promoted from this position to an RN position within ETMC upon graduation and licensure.
