Portland VA Medical Center - PVAMC
I am an RN-BC. That BC stands for my specialty board certification from the ANCC.
I achieved my RN-BC specialty certification in 2007.
I am currently working as a Dialysis nurse at the local VA hospital.
Our dialysis unit performs dialysis treatment for 40 regular patients and also takes care of visiting med-surg patients.
We are also responsible for all ICU patients in need of long term or short term dialysis treatment.
Our hospital has a vibrant transplant program, and our dialysis unit performs dialysis on the visiting transplant patients in need of dialysis.
I love my job and I love my co-workers and I love working with vets!
Oh! Did I mention we are a magnet hospital?!
