Because I’m passionate about providing high-quality healthcare for members of my local community, I pursue an advanced practice nurse (APN), role at South. From a young age, I have been driven to make a difference in people’s lives and use my knowledge and skills to positively impact their health outcomes. Thanks to my experience in the medical field and as a volunteer EMT, I was able to witness firsthand how nurses can provide quality care for patients while contributing to large-scale initiatives.
As an APN, I will be able to take on a more active role in patient care—from diagnosis and treatment to health education—while still being able to collaborate with other healthcare professionals for improved outcomes. In addition, I can set my schedule as this position allows for flexibility. It is very important to me because of the commitments that I have made in my role as a mom and wife. Ultimately, becoming an APN allows me to combine my passion for helping others with the flexibility that comes with it—which is why it is such a perfect fit for me.
