How long have you worked at CAMC?
I have worked at CAMC since May 12, 2012
What made you want to be a nurse?
I knew I wanted to be a nurse since I had my first son in 2001. The nurses did everything!
What’s your favorite part of being a nurse?
My favorite part about being a nurse is that you make a difference in peoples' lives, whether it be you performed CPR and helped resuscitate them, or you simply sat and held their hand.
What would you say to someone who’s considering coming to CAMC to be a nurse?
It is hard. There will be times you think, "What have I gotten myself into?" but it is the most rewarding career you will ever experience. We are saving lives! You may leave your shift in tears, or with a chest full with pride, but we are a family here at CAMC, and we always have each others' backs.
