Professional Summary

I am committed to my work, and pride myself on being very reliable, having a strong work ethic, and in general always doing the best job that I can. I have worked in various healthcare settings over the last 11 years, 6 of those years spent working as a registered nurse, and I have been a charge nurse and clinical coach for the last 4 years. I have a progressive career history in direct patient care, triage and care coordination in fast-paced environment. Proven to remain calm under pressure and skillfully handle difficult patients and high-stress situations. Consistently developing strong relationships with patients and families through empathetic communication, respectful attitude and excellent customer service. When discharging a patient, I make sure that they will be set up with everything that they need once home from the hospital setting. A large part of my job is being able to chart effectively in an electronic medical record, and being proficient in computer skills. I always welcome new opportunities to learn and grow in my nursing career, and can adapt quickly to new challenges. My manager has dubbed me with the nickname of “our ray of sunshine” in my current workplace, because I am a very positive and happy person. I love being a part of a team, and working with my fellow co-workers to keep our patients healthy and safe. I also am very accustomed to working with many ancillary staff members, and am very good at effectively communicating patient needs with other members of the healthcare team, in order to deliver the best care possible to patients. I enjoy the challenge of leading my team, and always make sure that my co-workers feel safe and comfortable with their patient assignments.

Work History

  • Monitored patient reactions to drugs and carefully documented findings.
  • Evaluated healthcare needs, goals for treatment and available resources of each patient and connected to optimal providers and care.
  • Audited charts and reviewed clinical documents to verify accuracy.
  • Managed the care of antepartum, intrapartum, postpartum, and newborn patients.
  • Triaged patients that came into my department with labor-related issues. I would then contact the patient’s physician about their current condition, receive orders, and collaboratively come up with a plan of care that would best meet the patient’s needs.
  • Upon discharge of patients, I would create a care plan for them that included scheduling follow-up appointments, making sure prescriptions were sent to their pharmacy of choice, and making sure that they had the necessary tools and education to take care of themselves and their newborn baby, in an effort to ensure success of their recovery, and therefore reduce their chances of being admitted back into the hospital.
  • In times where patients require a higher level of care than what we can provide at our facility, it is my responsibility to stabilize the patient, and facilitate a safe mode of transport, in order to get the mother and/or newborn to where they need to be.
  • It is my responsibility to be aware of and knowledgeable about various disease processes that can occur during pregnancy, and know how to properly treat these patients.
  • It is my responsibility as a charge nurse to lead my co-workers during emergent situations and know where and what my resources are that can help us care for patients during these emergency scenarios. As charge nurse, I also address staffing issues, patient and visitor complaints, and any other problems that may arise in the department.
  • My job roles also include clinical coaching and student nurse precepting, which requires me to educate and orient newly hired staff and student nurses to the department.

  • It was my responsibility to establish a plan of care for patients while in the hospital and also upon discharge.
