Phoenix, Arizona, United States
Loyola University Chicago - BSN Nursing, 2011
Since graduating from Loyola, I moved back to Phoenix to begin my career as a registered nurse. I worked in telemetry for two years at Banner Health, developing a good foundation of professional skills. Since 2014, I have worked for Honor Health and my career has blossomed into more than I anticipated. I currently work as a resource/float nurse for the health network; meaning I work between five hospitals and in nearly every adult specialty, both night shift and days. My present role includes circulating in the cath lab, patient care in cardiovascular ICU, medical ICU, trauma (level 1) ICU, emergency, telemetry, med/surg, observation, neurology, orthopedics, oncology, and SWAT nurse.
Additionally, I precept new hire nurses and am a member of two committees. My committees include an interdisciplinary patient care council, and ACT idea committee. Both of which make an effort to implement nursing staff ideas throughout the hospital network and give our RNs a voice. I am currently studying for a professional certificate and hope to earn my CCRN soon. I am in love with bedside nursing and learn new skills and knowledge every day. I plan on staying at the bedside for years to come.
