Julie Khashabi, R.N. (CNIII SDSC)
Working for UC Davis Health System has given me many opportunities throughout my employment here. One such area is in the support nursing staf received to meet their educational goals. When I attended AORN Congress this year I realized how fortunate we are to get reimbursement for conferences and professional leave, this is not the case in many facilities. In addition to reimbursement for education we get additional monthly earnings for certification in specialty areas, and this is good news for me since I am plannin gto take my CNOR exam this year. I believe supporting nurses in meeting their educational goals sends a very clear message to staff that says we value a well educated nurse and expect nothing less.
