Philosophy of Care

I believe nursing is about more than just treating a diagnosis; rather, it is focused on providing quality, individualized care to both the patients and their families. It involves caring for the whole person: their physical, emotional, spiritual, and educational needs, as well as taking into consideration social and cultural preferences. My goal is to provide comprehensive, compassionate care, and insure patients and their families feel comfortable, safe, cared for, and listened to.
