Along with working at the bedside for the past eleven, I have served on process improvement committees, reviewed policies implemented within the hospital, continue to teach yearly competencies within our department as well as perform in the charge role of a high patient volume setting for majority of the decade. I have a strong desire to focus on cardiac health management and education in a nurse practitioner role.
