I hold certification in Med-Surg Nursing. I have continually expanded my horizons through continuing education in a wide variety of topics

    7. What do you like the most about your job? The patients and making a difference in their lives either big or small.
    8. What do you like the least about your job? I am very unhappy with the RN to patient ratio where I work. Some days it's 7:1 and that is not good for the patient. On those days I leave feeling dejected and empty because I wasn't able to give the patients all they deserve


    Good luck to you. PM me if you have further questions.
