Summary

I worked with people with developmental disabilities and the geriatric population for over 8 years which has helped me very much with nursing. The experience I have working under stressful situations made multitasking while in nursing school possible. I maintained honors status, was vice president of the student nurse association, a peer tutor, worked as a nurse extender to help during a difficult period of the pandemic, and managed to work my primary job with people with developmental disabilities. I have now been working as registered nurse since September 2021 and have learned so much and I continue to learn something new every single day which is one of the reasons I love nursing.
