Providing RN oversight on every case from day one
Francis Shaw, RN
How long have you been a Nurse?
I have enjoyed being a nurse for over 20 years. I attended nursing school in my 40’s and earned my LPN Diploma first. Following that I worked as an LPN while I earned my RN Degree.
What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®?
Nursing began for me in a small town hospital in Alliance NE. The night shift gave me experience in many different phases of nursing. We cared for Pediatrics, Geriatrics, Med Surg clients of all ages, and we even cared for Detox patients. My favorites were attending Childbirths and helping out in the ER and the ICU. I learned Dialysis when I became an RN and loved it. When my sons flew away from the nest I took my Dialysis skills on the road as a traveling nurse. My husband and I traveled to many cities across the country and it was a very special experience that I will always cherish. When we settled in Henderson, NV I worked both in Home Health and Hospice.
What aspect of your job are you most passionate about?
It is a privilege to be working with an organization that believes in delivering stellar services and support for their clients. I have always been, first and foremost, a strong patient advocate and BrightStar has been encouraging me to advocate for each and every one of their clients.

Education, encouragement, assessing quality of services delivered, and coaching them to deliver their personal best are an honor that I do not take lightly.
