"My journey so far since working in the CICU has been rewarding. Joining the unit during the pandemic was challenging at first. Looking back over the year, I have gained knowledge and skills that will advanced my nursing career. What I love most about working in the CICU is that there is never a dull day."
"It’s not only what you do in the CICU, it’s what you can become. I love working with a talented group of individuals who really push me to the best version of myself – in and out of the CICU."
"Nursing is my second career and I have been on CTUN since September 2019. I LOVE serving our unique patient population including heart failure, LVAD and PAH to name a few. The daily challenges of caring for the acutely ill in these specialized circumstances have inspired me to continue learning, achieve certifications and execute best practice to better serve their needs. I have been encouraged and blessed to be a part of such a great team as CTUN."
“I love working as a clinical Neuro-Oncology nurse in the White Oak Clinic at Inova Schar Cancer Institute. The staff and team members are all very friendly and helpful. I’m enjoying the continuity of care with my patients and their families.”
“I enjoy the great teamwork and collegial relationships with our physicians. This past year has really challenged our team. As difficult as the year has been, I have been so happy to be a part of this amazing team of healthcare professionals making a difference. I love teaching and mentoring new staff.”
“The main thing I like about working in the CICU is the incredible support from each of the team members from the top down. There is always someone asking “Are you ok?” or “Do you need help with anything?” In an emergency, there is always a team of people ready to jump in and help. You are never alone. So the one word that I can use to descrive what I like the best about working in the CICU is SUPPORT.”
