Considered to be a mentor to many, especially to those newly entering the profession. I enjoy mentoring and teaching, especially the young enthusiastic nurses who are new to the profession, as well as patient teaching. I have a variety of clinical skills both in medical and surgical nursing areas. I have a strong basis in nursing theory and excel in the areas of physical assessment, interpreting of abnormal physical and physiological signs and symptoms. I enjoy interaction with all types of patients. One of my major strengths is defined as the ability to therapeutically interact with even the most socially difficult and challenging patients. I consistently embrace the ICARE values, and pride myself on delivery of excellent patient care, as reflected in quite a few "Strong Stars." I am an expert in documentation and a resource to others for proper documentation substance and format. I have experience in review of medical charts for legal matters and incorporate that experience into teaching others proper documentation standards and techniques.
