I have been a nurse for over 20 years and my clinical background is in emergency nursing as well as some maternal child nursing. I have been an Informatics Nurse going on 8 years now and absolutely love it! I started out as an Combat Medic in the US Army and they sent me to nursing school and the rest was history. I never imagined being a nurse but am firmly confident that the Army knew what they were doing when they sent me to nursing school. I recently passed my ANCC Board Certification in Informatics.
