During my time with Nurse Finders which was an agency that offered assignments in other hospitals in Wichita. I honed my nursing skills and evolved to be very flexible and very resourceful in managing my intensive care patients. I worked as an ICU nurse only as that was my career choice and focus. I never had the same assignment more than once. I was remarkably always given the difficult cases because staff was recognized as needing a break. I exited the company on good terms as i was pursuing my new found VA career.
