Professional Summary
I am truly honored to stand here before you within the walls of this great organization that is Holy Cross Hospital. Although I may not have the ideal amount of experience as a professional registered nurse that would be desired; I believe I possess the necessary skills, personal drive and dedication that you are seeking and would make a valuable addition to your company. In the past while obtaining most of my clinical experience my duties as a nursing student at Macneal Hospital, Loyola University Hospital, Hinsdale Hospital, and Riveredge Hospital, allowed me to sharpen and utilize my skills to match the qualifications you are seeking. As a nursing student my responsibilities ranged from all forms of medication administration to more invasive procedures such as IV insertion and urinary catheter placements. I was also able to familiarize myself with the most current systems being used in computerized charting and medication dispensing systems. As my resume indicates, I possess more than 10 years of progressive experience in patient care. My professional history includes positions such as medical assistant to an obstetrics/gynecologist as well as dental assistant for two dentists at Alldent, serving as the office receptionist at both locations, allowing me to gain perspective on the different needs of the patient. Most recently as a registered nurse, I was able to sharpen my skills in therapeutic communication working with high acuity patients as a psychiatric nurse within a hospital setting. There I was able to work with patients in all of the different stages of life; as this was a facility that provided care in pediatrics, to adolescents, adults, and in geriatrics. I am very well aware that as professionals and patient advocates we have an obligation to continue to expand our knowledge and keep current with evidence based practice, and thus not too long after obtaining my ADN I enrolled and attained my BSN; graduating with honors and soon after was invited and inducted as member of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. I have done this so that I may be able to meet the needs of respectable establishments such as yours; all the while providing compassionate and responsive care to all patients and their families in their time of need. Dedicated and Patient-Focused Registered Nursing Professional offering comprehensive, quality care. Meticulous regard for detail and accuracy with strong follow-through and administrative skills. Ability to maintain composure, and make decisions in fast-paced, unpredictable and stressful environments. Interface seamlessly with doctors, specialized support services, pharmacists, patients and visiting families. Resourceful in perceiving and resolving problems. Clear communicator, both written and oral. Project a polished, positive and professional demeanor with specialty experience in Psychiatric Nursing, mental health and behavioral health.
