My Mission 37 – Becca

May 27, 2022
I wanted to be as close to the community as possible. So acute care allowed me to see the community in some of the more fragile states and be able to help facilitate the health of the community. Having transitioned now to med-surg, I'm getting to take care of a lot of more psychological needs. Overall, it's just showing compassion.
