"Since graduating with my Master's of Science in Nursing from SFSU in 1997, I began working in the operating room at St. Francis Memorial Hospital. I have dedicated my life to the practice of operating room nursing, from being a staff nurse to charge nurse, educator, clinical informaticist and Robotic Team leader.
I just started a new job at UCSF as the Clinical Educator in Pediatric Surgery. I work in the Department for Nursing Excellence and focus my education for staff in the OR at the Benioff Children's Hospital at Mission Bay.I have loved every minute of my career and feel so fortunate that as nurses we can still learn and grow in so many ways throughout our careers. I truly believe in lifelong learning and always strive to support my fellow nurses to do the same!"

"I retired in 2013 after a career in critical care and working in Endoscopy.
I have never regretted becoming a nurse and will always be grateful to SF State for the education to start this career. Thank you. Hello to the class of 1965!"

"I was hired into the Critical Care New Grad Fellowship at UC Davis Medical Center. I will spend a total of 6 months orienting in three different adult ICUs with the goal of finding a permanent home in one of the units. It has been an amazing experience and opportunity, though very challenging due to the fast paced environment, critical patients, and difficulties posed by the pandemic.
