During my five years there, I was privileged to work in a lot of different specialties. I learned a lot about nursing and nurses from this experience.
Following my time at St. Luke’s, I accepted a position with the Sports Medicine & Orthopedic Surgery Center in Greenfield, Wisconsin. There I did everything from dressing changes and suture removals to insurance verifications and scheduling patient appointments. It was definitely a job that kept me on my toes.
