Megan Vizinat, RN
"Ochsner is helping shape the next phase of nurses. Every day in the ER is different, and we need to be able to adapt and respond to situations at a moment's notice. Through Ochsner, I have attended classes that have helped with communication and critical thinking skills as well as expand my nursing knowledge."
Shalan Randolph, MBA, MSN, APRN & RNP
System Director of Employee Health
“I love Ochsner and my growth at this organization! I started as a medical assistant (while in nursing school) and grew my career from a registered nurse, clinical nurse practitioner, advance practice provider site lead and now system director! While I will truly miss my Ochsner Urgent Care Krewe, I am excited to meet and work with my new employee health colleagues!”
Alaina Brown, RN
"Having the opportunity to impact lives daily through my actions, is most rewarding for me. I take pride in what I do with each patient encounter. It gives me satisfaction when patients say, “thank you for taking the time to explain that”, or “I appreciate the eye contact”. It’s the little things, like kindness, respect, empathy, and compassion, that has the biggest effect in this field. Honestly, I’m not sure if I chose nursing; I think it chose me. Either way, it feels like home."
Heather Rouyer, BSN, RN, CCRN
Operations Coordinator, Cardiac-Medical ICU
"My passion for nursing is critical care education, resuscitation training, and growing new graduate nurses. I have really enjoyed educating others over the years with the knowledge that I have acquired from great mentors. Five years ago, I became involved in the resuscitation committee and was a part of the first rapid response team at Ochsner Medical Center in 2017. It was great to see such hard work advocated over the years come to fruition, but the team reached the incredible outcomes in just its first year. To me, the most important piece to our nursing career is lifelong learning; there is truly never a time when you stop learning."
