Congratulations Rebecca!

After having completed my associate’s degree in nursing I have discovered the need to continue on with my education to obtain my bachelor’s degree in order to make a larger impact on the patients that I have the honor of serving.

Working in labor and delivery I have to opportunity to see women from all different walks of life. I get to help women discover their inner strength, encourage them to believe in themselves, and watch them transition into mothers every day. I have served women who have and are addicted to drugs and alcohol and have been there to hold their hand as they deliver their addicted infant. Labor is a trying time for women, especially those who are also struggling with addiction and I hope that my continued education can give me more insight and skills to be a support and advocate for those I serve.
