Why I Choose Nursing in Medicine

"I started on Nelson 4 as a new grad, precepting new staff within my first year and running charge within my second. My nurse manager constantly challenged me to advance my career goals - which led me to earn my certificate as a wound care specialist. Now, as a unit-based expert, I enjoy a high level of autonomy and work closely with the entire interdisciplinary team. I truly believe I've had opportunities not available at other institutions."
