What Our Nurses Are Saying About GBMC
BSN, RN, CCRN- Surgical Intensive Care Unit
"I love being a nurse at GBMC because it feels like being part of a family."
BSN, RN- Surgical Intensive Care Unit
"I love being a nurse at GBMC because of the teamwork and enthusiasm I experience from my coworkers every shift."
BSN, RN, FNE-A/P, SANE-A, CFN- SAFE Program
"I have been a registered nurse with the SAFE Program (Sexual Assault Forensic Examiners) at GBMC for the last five years. I couldn't imagine doing this job at any other hospital. When I arrive in the Emergency Room for a case, all of the nurses, physician assistants, and doctors are very helpful in providing any assistance that our patients, requiring forensic evaluation, may need. The SAFE Department has continuous support from our CEO and president, Dr. Chessare. I have worked for other hospitals, but never one where the president of the hospital was so actively involved. My manager, Laura Clary, BSN, RN, FNE-A/P, SANE-A, CFN, CPEN, couldn't be more supportive of each of her nurses. I plan to work as a Forensic Nurse Examiner at GBMC for many years to come."
BS, RN- Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
"With GBMC's warm and inviting atmosphere, I have been able to find my passion for nursing in the NICU. GBMC has provided me with the avenue to help families, and babies who are not able to help themselves, to get stronger and live another day. As a NICU nurse at GBMC, I literally get to hold the future in the palm of my hands every day I come to work."
RN, CHPN- Gilchrist Services
"Being a nurse in the inpatient hospice unit at Gilchrist has allowed me to follow my passion for providing compassionate end-of-life care. I love working with an interdisciplinary team that shares my dedication to meeting the special needs of our patients and families during a very difficult time in their lives."
MS, RN, CORLN- Otolaryngology, Milton J. Dance Jr. Head and Neck Center
"I love working with head and neck cancer survivors at GBMC. I love that I get to work with my patients throughout the care continuum…from diagnosis and pre-treatment planning, during treatment and recovery, and throughout their survivorship. I love teaching my patients and their loved ones how to adapt to the changes cancer has brought to their lives; how to not just survive, but to thrive in their ‘new normal.’ I love helping patients realize what they CAN do; identifying adaptations that turn the ‘I don’t think I cans’ into success. I love celebrating with my patients, not just milestones, but the ordinary and everyday events that are the foundation of their lives. I love working with the many outstanding oncology nurses and clinicians on our team. I love being an oncology nurse at GBMC."
Chelsea N. Woodell
BSN, RN, CCRN- Nursing Education
"I love being a nurse at GBMC; it is truly an institution that fosters an environment where education is highly valued and supported. Working in such an environment provides me with the opportunity to train and educate our nurses to deliver exceptional, evidenced-based care to patients. Knowing that I have the opportunity and professional responsibility to educate how care is provided to patients is what inspires me to be a clinical nurse educator."
