Neuroscience Nursing, Ltd.
So, how did I get from UCSF, to Cedars, to UCLA and Neuroscience Nursing? I've always wanted to educate nurses, even as I graduated from nursing school, way back.
One of my early mentors, Helen Ripple at UCSF, told me once, "A really good Clinical Nurse Specialist teaches herself out of a job." I believe that. I've also been told I can make the difficult concepts of neuroscience understandable. I take that as the highest compliment.
Today, I'm a nurse entrepreneur -- devoting myself to educating nurses, honoring their work and helping them pay for furthering their education.
If you are someone, or a company who would consider joining, or becoming involved with my Operation Scrubs symposium programs, let's start with an email. Tell me about yourself and leave a message.
Better yet, pick up the phone and give me a call at (800) 627-6156, Ext. 802.
P.S. ... and when I'm not working, I'm turning some of my "bucket list" thoughts into actual experiences:
Zip Lining ... My first Horse Race ,,, Sky Diving ... Taste of Rattlesnake...
Big Bad Vodoo Daddy Concert guest ...
Fastest lap in Richard Petty's NASCAR: 137 mph ...
