I have been a nurse for over twenty years and have expereince in various areas such as renal, telemetry, adolescent health, clinical research and urology. With my strong nursing background and skills in numerous areas of the field, I could be a great asset to your team. I will conclude my education this August at Barnes-Jewish Goldfarb School of Nursing with my master's degree in nursing. I will take my certification exam in the fall of 2017 to become certified as a nurse practitioner. I wish to expand and increase my skills and knowledge as soon as I graduate. Along with my extensive nursing experience, I have excellent teamwork skills, a positive attitude about learning new tasks, and a passion for taking on new opportunities.
