I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Director of Nursing at the Great River Care Center. I may have already had the pleasure of meeting some of you, and others I look forward to meeting soon. I joined the facility back in 2012 as a CNA, where I quickly fell in love with nursing, particularly the geriatric population. I immediately knew this was not just a job, but a career. I then continued my education while working as a CNA full time, earning my LPN in 2015 and then RN in 2017. I have learned so much over the years and am thankful to have worked in all aspects of the nursing department. I am very grateful to be able to continue to grow with the same facility I have learned so much from over the years and I am very excited to continue that path. I am very thankful to be able to work in such a family oriented environment with such dedicated staff.
