Summary

Multi-talented RN with 16 1/2 years of experience administering treatment to wound care patients. Experienced nursing professional bringing demonstrated clinical expertise, leadership skills and technical knowledge. Proficient in updating charts, monitoring medications and working with multidisciplinary teams to optimize patient care. Quality-driven and efficient with strong interpersonal abilities. I've been changing wound vacs since first year as LPN when the machine cost about as much as a small car! I still love wound vacs and I love the challenge of keeping them suctioning and watching wounds heal without infection on my watch. I love collaborating with other team members and I love constructive criticism given to me to better the care I give to my patients.
