Clinical Support & Case Review Nurse
How long have you been a nurse?
Why did you become a nurse?
Well, the idea was planted with a career aptitude test, but I pursued it because of my desire to make an impact in people’s lives and a general fascination with the medical world!
What is your role at eviti, Inc.?
My role requires many different hats to adapt to fit the needs of the provider I am speaking with or the treatment plan I am reviewing!
How does your role at eviti impact patients differently than working with patients in the clinical setting?
Direct patient care is wonderful, but it feels like your impact on the patient ends with the few interactions you have with them. At eviti, we make lasting progress with countless individuals.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I love knowing that each case I touch is another patient being steered towards evidence-based medicine.
How has nursing changed over the last 10 years?
I have been a nurse with eviti for 6 1/2 years and have had many different roles. I think that is the general trend of nursing as well, always evolving. You become a nurse and you grow with every experience you have, and you learn about yourself and start to form the idea of where you want to go. A nurse’s role is ever changing and evolving!
What advice do you have for others who are considering becoming a nurse?
I would say that it is hard and that it requires so much flexibility. You will encounter things that you wouldn’t dream you would ever have to handle; but, the skills and character you build with each challenge you take on help you move towards greater opportunities – and those opportunities are always expanding!
