I have been a Registered Nurse since 1991. My experience includes Home Infusions, which included patient education in caring for their PIV's, PAC's, Midlines, IJ's and PICC lines. Also included, the proper procedures for the patient and/or family member to administer IV antibiotics, steroids, TPN or PPN.

I have also performed the duties of a Circulator, PAT Nurse and PACU RN in Surgical Services. I also have experience in High risk Obstetrics in labor and delivery including newborn management. I also have skills performing Charge Nurse duties which include staffing, floor assignments and problem solving for Physicians and staff.
