  • First 3 1/2 years worked on Same Day surgery unit working with post op patients. This involved monitoring Pt's to include vital signs, ability to take oral input, voiding, and pain management. As Pt's reached d/c status, discharge instructions were given. If pt unable to reach d/c status, arrangements were made to have pt admitted to hospital. Last 4 years I functioned as Nurse Educator for Family medicine clinic working new diabetics teaching use of glucometers, eating right, exercise, healthy lifestyle. I was also responsible for teaching Pts with hypertension and hyperlipidemia. Weight loss and healthy lifestyle are also topics I worked with with patients.
