What is your current position?
I am a registered nurse in New York. I work in orthopedic so I specialize in hips and knees. I first started as a nursing assistant and then became an RN and have been in the field for 8 years now.
Why did you choose this particular career?
At the end of the day, I chose this career because I love helping people.
What advice would you give someone pursuing this career path?
My best advice is to make sure to keep your grades up in school and have a lot of passion for nursing. At the end of the day, you have to love what you do.
What do you love about your career?
Besides, helping people, I especially love that my schedule is very flexible. I work really hard three nights out of the week but I am off the other days. It also helps that while I am at work, I really enjoy and love the people I work with.
What is one of your favorite on-the-job memories?
My favorite on-the-job memory and experience is helping my patients with pain management. We have so many people that are in a lot of pain and I am grateful I was trained really well in helping people deal with pain management. During the process it is hard, but in the end, people are so appreciative and it is so rewarding to help people get better and out of the pain they are in.
What are some of your favorite activities outside of work?
Outside of work, my favorite activity is being with my family and my children. We love reading and we love taking the dog on walks, and going to the beach.
Finally, what feature is most important to you while choosing your scrubs?
The most important feature is having a great fit. I like scrubs that are breathable, light, and comfortable so you can move around. I really don’t like paper scrubs that are not form fitting.
Is there anything else you’d like to add or say?
Yes, my final thing I’d like to say is, always listen to your patients. Because patients know best and be willing to speak up for them. Be an advocate for your patients.
