I am very excited to be here. I chose nursing because there is always something new to learn and the field is ever changing. I also became a nurse because the last 8 years have been full of great and not so great nursing personalities. Research told me that the not so great attitudes may have been a result of nurses being over worked due to a shortage. I'm not here with hopes of saving the world, only to be an asset to the profession and a rock for patients and families. And also an advocate for patients and coworkers.
