Gertrude Slaughter, RN
Why did you become a nurse?
I became a nurse because I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives.
I love the work- caring for, and working with, people.
I also love the challenge of solving problems that we encounter caring for them and the rewarding satisfaction that comes with truly helping them live better lives.
How long have you been a nurse?
I have been a registered nurse for 18 years and have provided client care in a variety of hospital, rehabilitation and home settings.
What do you like most about nursing?
My favorite reward is that genuine smile that we receive from a client when they know that you have given them your best care.
