Testimonials

  • "I help make your very worst day of your life, bringing your child to the emergency department a little bit lighter. A little bit better. Or at least to help to make you feel just a little bit more comfortable in a really scary situation."

    ~ Michelle, RN, emergency department
  • "People would be surprised at the patient connection that you do get [in the operating room]. There's a misconception that there's not a lot of involvement with the patient, because they are asleep for most of the procedure, but during the time that you are with them, it's quite a deep connection, and it's very, very rewarding."

    ~ Vanja, clinical nurse educator, operating room
  • "We have such a great team... in my nursing career I have never been exposed to a team like this where communication, support, resources, and interdisciplinary teamwork is at this level. And it's something that I don't know I would ever be able to leave."

    ~ Jason, RN, pediatric intensive care unit
  • "Frontline staff is all about making connections with the patients, primarily teenagers and children, also the families, really making deep connections with them over time."

    ~Patrick, RN, child and youth mental health
