Clinical nursing in intensive care unit (ICU), in orthopedic/neurological units, and in medical/surgical care, including supervisory and staff duty.
As a nursing educator, I was involved in almost every specialty area of nursing including Pediatrics, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Gerontology, Rehabilitation and all body systems-related specialties including both clinical practice and the corresponding theory. This position expanded my exposure to experiences into many ancillary departments in the health care field allowing me to benefit from the expertise of those professionals. My role demanded that students be taught to make assessments, provide proper documentation, provide holistic care, develop a plan of care that identified each patient's individual needs, and to carry out that care with utmost respect. Additionally, assignments that promoted the concept of continued learning through such resources as research, professional contacts, literature, and the media were incorporated in the instruction. All of these precepts were reflected in my own level of practice.
