Jazmin loves the challenges of Med/Surg nursing and has been an active participant in unit based as well as hospital wide initiatives that improve the quality of care for our patients. She quotes, “I enjoy learning about and helping patients understand the different types of diseases that impact their lives. MSU is a great floor to work on. We face challenges and work with the leadership team, bedside staff, and clinical support services to try different projects that have a positive impact on patient care. People ask me when I will retire, I answer that I still love what I’m doing in Med/Surg!”
We are very proud of Jazmin’s accomplishment and dedication to her patients and AAMC!
