I remember being hired here in 1981. I was so happy to be back in the city after being in the suburbs for a couple of years. I immediately felt like I was where I was supposed to be. I knew that this would be the place for me to stay after having moved around to a few different jobs – the welcoming staff and the happiness that radiated through the hospital, even though we didn’t have a cafeteria yet. I still think joining BWH was the best decision of my nursing career.
I have been at the hospital long enough to have completed two degrees, published a peer-reviewed article, completed my ANCC certification in pain management nursing and become a geriatric resource nurse. I was supported by the hospital and my peers the whole way.
The memories I will carry with me are those of the most extraordinary people that I have worked with along the way – dedicated to patients and each other. It has truly been a privilege to be a part of the team.
