What made you choose a career in nursing?
I always knew I wanted to care for babies at a time when their parents needed the help the most.
What Do You Attribute Your Success To?
Finding the area of nursing (NICU) that I am passionate about early enough in my career to dedicate my time and effort in it to become the best NICU nurse I could be. I then wanted to feel that I could do any job within the area of NICU, so I set my goals on NICU education and NICU management. I am happy to say that I was able to have a rewarding job in both.
What motivates you at the start of each day?
Opportunity and ability to care for the very vulnerable neonatal babies
How do you make a difference in the lives of your patients?
I do my job to the best of my abilities with the intention of leaving the baby in a more comfortable condition than when I began my shift
