A registered nurse with her BSN working in geriatrics/hospice care for a nursing home/rehabilitation center. Currently preparing to get married and start a new little family.
I am a registered nursing currently working in long-term care for geriatric patients and adult residents needing rehabilitation after surgery. Many of my residents are hospice patients. I attended Eastern Michigan University and obtained my BSN in December of 2012 and my RN license in the summer of 2013.
To be honest, I never wanted to be a nurse until I began working as a rehabilitation assistant with traumatic brain injury residents in the group home setting. After seeing poor care and lack of real nursing staff I wanted so badly to be the person who could come in and change that. I went from TBI care to geriatric home-care and from that to long-term care after I received my licensure. Now I'm planning on moving on to the next step in my career by getting my DNP.
Before that can happen, I'm currently planning a wedding, finding a home and awaiting the arrival of a brand new niece! (that will make 5 nieces and 2 nephews so far! wow!) It's an exciting adventure and I hope it never ends!
