Professional Summary

I worked in a Wt Loss Center that was basically a Dr's office. I did nursing supervision at a nursing home . Northern Metropolitan , In 1996 at Nyack the nurses were on strike . I was able to immediately get a job at a nursing agency and did staffing at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, and at Horton and St Lukes in Orange County.
