What I value most about being a professional nurse at UC Davis Medical Center is the autonomy I am allowed in providing outstanding patient care. As a cardiac nurse on Davis 6, I am able to be ACLS, ABG and Sheath Pull Nurse Certified. These are just a few examples of areas where I can fully utilize my RN skill set.
I also love being to facilitate the growth of our new doctors that come in every year. By helping them think a problem through or teach them about available resources, I feel like I helped them grow into the amazing attendings that they will be one day. The teaching aspect of our hospital is very inspirational.
I also feel so supported by our management and administration to be the best nurse and leader I can be. With our open door policies, I am always greeted with a smile when I come with questions or concerns.
