A glimpse into our compassion...
"We are not working on someone's automobile or mere possession, this is their body, their life! What a tremendous responsibility! Nursing is very rewarding. I love to help/care for people. Seeing the patient's condition in which they presented to the hospital transform, improve, recover, resolve, and then going home just makes you feel good inside. Knowing you were part of the "team" that directly affected that outcome." - Keith Cooley, R.N.
"My Grandmother was a nurse when I was a small child. I listened to her daily talk about helping 'sick' people. That was my inspiration to become a nurse!" - Randa Smith, R.N., B.S.N., Director of Inpatient Services
"I honestly love helping people. I love making a connection with my patients and getting that smile from them. I enjoy it when they are comforted that I am back with them the next night and I know they trust me to take care of them." - Kerri McCullough, R.N., B.S.N.
