In honor of Nurses Week 2019, we sat down with Brandi to ask a few questions about her passion for nursing, her responsibilities, and the philosophy she brings to her work.
I love the challenge of working in a fast-paced environment that requires me to use critical thinking and empowers me to help patients better their lives.
I work in the emergency room at Grand Itasca Clinic & Hospital, which means that I can encounter any — or sometimes all— types of patients on a given day or night. My role in their care might be as simple as applying a Band-Aid or as complex as a time-sensitive, life-saving intervention.
I think it is a great privilege to be present during some of the most critical times of my patients’ lives. I am able to work on a team and save lives, and that is exceptionally rewarding.
Teamwork! I have worked at other facilities and can say without a doubt that the sense of teamwork exhibited by my coworkers is unparalleled. My colleagues are what pull me through the hard shifts and keep me coming back for more.
