Additional Information

I am originally from Slovakia. I completed my associate degree in nursing here and worked as a RN in the cardiovascular intensive care unit for 18 years. I hold a bachelor's degree in nursing and a master's degrees in nursing; most recent - Family NP (graduated in 2019). I obtained all my education and certifications in the USA. I have over twenty years of healthcare experience, eighteen of which were in leadership roles (interim manager, supervisor) combined with cardiovascular ICU nursing experience and PACU. I have been part of hospital teams working on prevention of hospital associated infections (medical devices, catheters, foleys, and skin issues). I actively participated in investigating root cause analysis of sentinel events in variety of medical settings. I also navigated (after accruing detailed medical and administrative facts) change in nursing workflow to avoid sentinel events in the ICU settings and improve hospital flow. I am proficient in using the general occurrence form for reporting an event such as that related to behavior, communication, compliance, delay in service, documentation, injuries, patient condition, hospital-acquired or worsening pressure ulcer, procedure/treatment, security/facility, surgical procedure or visitor condition. I am extremely efficient and organized. While in nursing leadership roles, I had the opportunity to meet and positively influence hundreds of people. I developed excellent clinical skills, teaching and coaching skills. My personal evaluations over the twenty years of nursing consistently demonstrated my ability to independently and accurately execute variety of medical and clinical tasks in crisis situations along with the ability to motivate and support others to reach their career goals. I have superior customer service skills and am well known for my natural ability to advocate for the right choices for patients, families, and peers.
