As a registered nurse for the past 18 years, I have worked in the following areas of nursing:
Medical Surgical nursing
Home health nursing
My duties varied and are listed in the skills section of this resume. My strongest attribute is my visual assessment of my patient, as well as my unwillingness to leave no stone unturned. My ability to thoroughly assess and communicate in a respectful manner is what I take with me into the homes of my patients.
I have always found that listening with a commitment to understanding my patients facilitates a more speedy recovery as well as a more meaningful relationship with them.
I am a person with an “attention to detail “ and an honest employee. I have always liked working with our Elders and plan on continuing to do so.
My objective has always been to educate patients in the disease process as well as medications with a strong focus on preventative care with the intention of creating a quality of life that brings some measure of peace.
