Ø I started working in a cardiac step down unit immediately upon graduation at Sacren Heart Hospital in Norristown, PA in 1983. I then moved into the ICU/CCU units at Sacred Heart Hospital (1984). Upon relocating I worked at Geisinger Medical Center in the Surgical/ Trauma ICU (1986). When we located to this area I worked at a VNA doing home nursing care. This position best suited my family needs at the time. I missed ICU nursing so I also did about a year of flex pool nursing in the ICU at Hershey Medical Center overlapping with my time at the VNA.
Ø After about 16 years in the nursing field, I chose to go back to school to earn my School Nurse Certification at Millersville University. I have been currently working as a Certified School Nurse for ten years.
