Personal Note

  • Specific to surgical nursing – patient advocacy is key in our role. My passion and drive comes from being a patient advocate and supporting the patient during a vulnerable time. A surgical experience can be overwhelming, scary and intimidating- it’s an unknown in which the patient doesn't have control. As a surgical nurse, I take pride in being able to reassure patients, comfort them, and be their safety advocate. The patients trust me to take great care of them and do no harm. This alone is the driving passion for providing great care to every patient I encounter.
