I would like to be able to share my nursing knowledge and skills. My goal is to be able to teach others the skills they need to provide quality care to consumers of healthcare services. I would also like to promote professionalism from within the facility while interacting with students, staff, patients and their families as well. I believe I am a very motivated, a self starter. I enjoy working with people of all ages, and developing new relationships. One of my strengths as both a nurse and an educator is my ability to work patiently with others, my willingness to learn new skills, the desire to provide safe quality care to all patients, and to recognize the value of teamwork as well.
