Professional Summary

I have been a registered nurse for 17 years. Five of those years were spent at St Dominic on the Post-Partum/Women's Medical Surgical Unit. I very much enjoyed my time at St Dominic and learned a great deal including providing proficient care to patients, coordinating with staff and physicians, performing nursing tasks, and performing as charge nurse when needed. I have worked night shift, day shift, and weekends. This provided me with nursing skills that I continue to use on a daily basis.

I left St Dominic for a more flexible schedule while my daughter was entering pre-school. I started at Sta-Home Health & Hospice October 2010 as a field nurse, providing direct care to patients. I managed patient's medications, coordinated appointments, provided skilled care, as well as worked closely with physicians to maintain patient's continuance of care while at home. After 4 years of field nursing, I was promoted to Clinical Supervisor. I was the supervisor over all visiting staff. I reviewed and sent labs, approved or declined orders, communicated with physicians, and coordinated with field staff regarding patient recertification or discharge.

After 5 years as clinical supervisor at Sta-Home, I received another career opportunity as Infection Control/Wound Nurse/Charge Nurse at Carthage Senior Care. I was in charge of documenting infection cases in the facility and implementing measures to treat/prevent them. I also provided wound care and wound documentation for the facility. I served as charge nurse when needed. That entailed making rounds with physicians, taking orders, skilled documentation, and coordinating care with other clinicians to provide the best care for the residents.

After nearly 2 years of working at Carthage Senior Care, I decided to return to Women’s Health care at Merit Health- Woman’s Hospital lbecause of my love for the field and for family scheduling reasons. This is where I am currently employed as staff RN. I am enjoying my time there but am always interested in furthering my career in Women’s Health. I feel as if St Dominic would be a perfect fit.
