I have worked in an acute / long-term care facility since obtaining my license. I have earned my ACLS and looking for other nursing opportunities. I am looking forward to earning other certifications after acquiring the necessary experience hours needed. I have had a wide variety of patients including cancer, stroke, joint replacement, Alzheimer, dementia, sepsis, abused and mentally ill patients. I have done everything from pass medicine to death certificates. I can change wound dressings including wound vacs. I can work any shift, although I prefer first. I feel on first or second shift it easier to get take more control in patient care. On third shift one has to rely on first shift to contact family or physicians (unless it is an emergency). I enjoy being able to make a difference in someones life.
