I have 6 years of nursing experience. I began in a telemetry unit at Danville Regional. I worked there for 6 months. I then moved to the ER, where I worked for 2 years in the same company. After that I worked in a nursing home for 6 months on the rapid admit and fresh out of the hospital hall, I was not happy with this company. I then started working in the float pool for Duke University Hospital. I worked there for 1 year and some months. I have currently been working at Amedisys hospice for going on my 3rd year. I am also currently in school, I am now finishing my final classes for my BSN and I will bridge to my NP courses in 3 weeks. I feel that I am highly trained as well as universally educated.
