Nurses Week is a yearly celebration beginning on May 6th and ending on May 12th that honors the nursing profession.

What is your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?

My biggest achievement in life was accepting Jesus Christ as my personal savior.  It has affected the decisions that I made throughout my life. It allowed me to accept the things that I didn’t understand. It has allowed me to be able to work with different types of people and to have the confidence to be able to get through the day or night.


What do you love to do on your days off when you’re not working?

On my days off, I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren. Children are our future and the impression we make on them while they are young will last a lifetime.


What is your favorite part about working per diem?

What I like the most is the variety. Working with Advantage Medical Professionals has afforded me the ability to work with patients from newborns to the elderly. Just recently I had the opportunity to care for veterans, and it was an honor to care for some of the men and women who fought so that we could enjoy the freedom that we share in the USA today.


How has the nursing profession changed since the beginning of your career?

Today almost everything is disposable, and most of the charting we do is on a computer.


What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

The best advice I have ever gotten was from my grandmother to “take courage “.
