I have been a Registered Nurse for approximately four years with the majority of my nursing career in the emergency department.

Body: 

Nursing is actually my second career. I was a commercial underwriter for a title company in Chapel Hill for about 11 years before changing careers to nursing. My nursing career started at DRH on general surgery. I later transferred to postpartum where I thoroughly enjoyed working with new moms. I briefly worked as a home health nurse. I was in my last position for 11 years at NC Specialty Hospital in their preop department where I served as charge nurse and preceptor until accepting this new opportunity with PHMO.
