What I enjoy most about my career is communicating with patients, getting to know them, and individualizing plans of care with my patients based on their own preferences and values as well as medical science and evidence-based practices. I am a firm believer in utilizing teamwork among healthcare providers and patients in order to more effectively meet patient goals. I've always considered open communication and mutual understanding to be some of my most favorite aspects of working in the nursing profession.
