Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I was compelled to advocate for patients early in nursing school in both my clinical community health rotation and my surgery rotation. In my community health rotation, I assisted an illiterate, single mom (of three) better understand her diabetes and how to best manage her condition. My surgery rotation was where I fell in love with collaboration and effective teamwork. In my more than 20 years of experience as a surgical nurse, I have learned that patient outcomes are directly connected to team effectiveness. When the healthcare team communicates, collaborates and connects, patients do better.

As an independent Registered Nurse Patient Advocate (iRNPA) I can channel my energies into assisting patients not only navigate the health care system, but I can help build healthcare teams that truly put the patient at the center of care. It is truly serendipitous that I can use my advocacy skills both one on one with a patient and in collaboration with the entire healthcare team.
