I am a dedicated RN with a broad range of acute care experience specializing in cardiac medicine. I spent the first three years of my career on a medicine telemetry unit, perfecting my understanding of pharmacology, patient advocacy and clinical competency. The following year, I transferred to the only progressive care unit at a level 1 trauma center, which often exceeded 100 percent patient turn-over. I refined my time-management skills and developed a broad understanding of surgical and trauma care, and during the last year I had the opportunity work as both a critical care and emergency room nurse. I am motivated to continue building on my critical care knowledge and skills. My knowledge will be further expanded by my current deployment to an international controlled hospital in Afghanistan.
