A long time ago, I was thrust into the preceptor role when we didn’t even have a preceptor “class”. Someone just said, “you like to teach, why don’t you take one of the new nurses and train her?” Of course, I agreed. That nurse that I taught has now been a certified flight RN #cfrn for over 15 years. 18 years ago, I decided to get my CEN #cen and that was my 1st certification exam. Today, I have taught numerous clinical rotations, paramedic interns, nursing students, residents, emergency nurses, trauma nurses and I am grateful that my certifications help to pave the way by showing my continued dedication to being a lifelong learner and nursing excellence. •

About the Author
I am an experienced trauma nurse who has seen a lot of super tragic and gnarly things. On the flip side, I’ve have seen and done a lot of amazing things in my 20 years of nursing as well. I’ve saved lives for a living and I have had the privilege and the honor of holding patients hands as they take their last breath. I have seen SO many patients and their loved ones in their most fragile moments. I am proud of my profession, and for the fact that I have fought so valiantly to be here. Sometimes nurses get burnt out, but I have been blessed to be at the bedside all of my career. I have earned multiple degrees and certifications in nursing. I am the nurse you want at your bedside when you’re critically injured and dying. I put my blood, sweat and tears into being clinically astute & relevant. This blog is to help new nurses, nursing students, paramedics, experienced nurses, or whomever comes across my blogs path and think it is intriguing, educational or inspiring to them. In this career, we are all here to share and help one another grow. I believe in building others up, so they can reach the next level, whatever their goal may be. Carpe Diem & ENJOY!
