Get To Know Brittany R!
how did you get into nursing?
When entering high school we had to choose a career path, so I chose Allied Health and entertained the thought of becoming a nurse anesthetist; however, by the second year of college I had decided not to go into the nursing field and was not sure of the direction I wanted to go. To please my mother I completed the surgical technician program at our local community college and began working in the operating room until I could decide what I wanted to do with my life. Come to find out, this seems to be my niche and I really enjoy the hands-on aspect of the job and working closely with the surgeons.
Do you have any advice for future nurses?
Do what you love; if you don’t love your job everyone suffers, especially the patient who is the reason for your job.
Favorite travel location and why?
Medial University of South Carolina in Charleston; love the location and the facility.
If you could have a superpower what would it be?
My superpower would be to zap out laziness in the operating room so that everyone would pull their own weight and make the patient their number one priority, always.
What are some of your hobbies?
My dog and doing everything with him; he is the cutest and sweetest thing ever!
