What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing? In 1986 I attended nursing school as a way to support my 2 little boys following a divorce. Many years ago I was called to hospice and found out that I had an ability to connect with people that was very fulfilling and actually made a difference. Well, I began to see this ability as a gift that I was given to help others. So, early in my hospice career I knew that I had a duty to bring comfort and care to those dealing with the end of life. Every day, I am thankful that I have the honor and privilege of caring for the dying.
What is your experience and background in Nursing? I spent two years as a Registered Nurse Circulator: first for Kings Daughters Hospital operating room in Temple, Texas then for Providence Health Center operating room in Waco, Texas.
After my experiences in the operating room, I began to work for Hospice and soon discovered my true passion. I worked in Home Care as a Case Manager and Quality Assurance Specialist, as well as Case Manager for Scott and White Hospital in Temple, Texas, Providence Hospice in Waco, Texas, and Odyssey Health Care in Temple, Texas. I also served as Patient Care Manager for Providence Hospital and Charge Nurse for James L. West Hospice House in Fort Worth, Texas.
I participate as a guest speaker for one of Baylor University’s Death and Dying classes. Through all of these positions, I became acutely aware of the role end of life professionals play in providing the necessary palliative care for their patients. However, I was not satisfied with the scope of my knowledge and sought to expand my understanding of Hospice by serving as Administrator and Clinical Director for Heritage Care Hospice in Harker Heights, Texas, Southern Care Inc. in Waco, Texas, and Texas Home Health Hospice in Waco, Texas.
Would you recommend Nursing as a career? Most definitely
How did you hear about the Nursefriendly, NursingEntrepreneurs.com?: From the wonderful world of Twitter
The year you were you first licensed as a nurse? 1989
Professional organizations you have belonged to (now or in the past, please spell out the full name): Texas Nurses Association
What made you decide to start your own business? With my accumulated experience in Hospice, I could see the gap in education and training for end of life professionals, so I began Pro Hospice Solutions, LLC. As CEO and Educator, I want to address this gap and ensure that end of life professionals are empowered to accept and embrace the gift of providing compassionate care for their patients.
Because I couldn't help fix the problems I saw while working under someone else"s expectations!!
How many times have you changed employers in your career? A few !!!!
What specific qualities and traits do you feel make nurses especially qualified to operate a business? Nurses are organized, plan driven, and focused on providing what is need for quality care.
Do you currently practice as a nurse? If yes in what type of setting? Yes, I feel it is necessary to heed my calling while practicing the tools and techniques I teach to end of life professionals. I periodically visit patients, preform on-call shifts, and mentor new nurses. So, Hospice is my setting!
Your most pressing concerns with the profession and healthcare: I feel we have disconnected our healthcare professionals from their patients and colleagues by denying them quality continuing education that would empower them, expand their knowledge base, and connect them with others who share their vision. We need quality education and support for healthcare professionals and consumers!!!
How do you feel the coming nursing shortage (as baby boomers enter the healthcare system, and nurses retire in droves) will affect patient care? It will create a tremendous tragedy for patients and their loved ones unless we find a way to revitalize the nursing profession by empowering them with quality education and support.
