I started my nursing career over thirty years ago, earning my BSN straight out of high school...knowing I wanted to work with people AND science. I have worked in postoperative care, hospital education, chemical dependency, psychiatry, nursing management, psychiatric home health, inpatient rehabilitation, and endoscopy. I briefly contemplated being a psychologist (hence, my educational master's degree in counseling psychology), but stayed with my first love, nursing. Working with veterans at the Portland VA Medical Center led to an awesome opportunity for me-I now teach baccalaureate nursing students more about caring for veterans through the VA Nursing Academic Partnership (VANAP) program with OHSU School of Nursing.
