Christine Allen, R.N. (CNII ED)
I have worked at UC Davis Medical Center for 21 years; I choose to work here right out of nursing school because it was a teaching facility and I felt I could learn a lot. I was correct in my thinking and have learned a tremendous amount during my years here, and continue to learn something new every day. I enjoy the team atmosphere that is fostered in the ED between doctors, nurses, and ancillary staff, without each other we could not make it through the shift. There are many opportunities to participate in research and new procedures that might not be readily available outside a teaching facility.
