3C Nursing Unit-Clinical Care Facilitator
Washington Hospital Center SuperStar 2009
I became interested in Washington Hospital Center when I did a clinical rotation here as part of nursing school. It was a wonderful experience, mostly due to some amazing preceptors who made me feel as though the hospital would be a good fit for me to start my nursing career. Recently, I had a role change from a clinical nurse to a Clinical Care Facilitator on Nursing Unit 3C. I’m enjoying the new challenge with this position, which includes striking a balance on patient and staff education, ensuring a positive and efficient experience for the patients, and taking in all the new learning opportunities provided to me. I always challenge myself to anticipate needs on the unit around me, and analyze my skill set to determine how to best meet patients’ needs. Fortunately, I know there is abundance of clinical and managerial expertise around me to call on at the Hospital Center. The best thing to do for a patient is to know which resource to tap, especially when people are working as a team with one unified goal of keeping our patients first. Nursing is a great profession, and getting the kind of outstanding experience here at the Hospital Center has helped me to grow and continue to improve in my nursing skills and leadership development. I’m really proud to be a hospital SuperStar, and to have the opportunity everyday to deliver patient first care.
