Providing RN oversight on every case from day one
Bernadette Lucas, RN
How long have you been a Nurse? After graduating from Seattle University with a bachelor’s degree in nursing I have worked for over 40 years as an RN. What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®? From many years in hospital nursing, to owning/operating 2 elder care facilities where I specialized in dementia care, a nursing instructor for health care professionals and nursing students to Home Health and Hospice nursing. What aspect of your job are you most passionate about? I am passionate about combing compassion, empathy and patience to all I serve. As a new nurse, I returned to Seattle University to obtain specialized education to care for the family unit as I understood that illness affects the entire family. My emphasis is the well being of patients, families, co workers and the public at large. I feel an obligation to share my knowledge and experience and to be a caring, role model/educator for all. I provide A Higher Standard of Care for our BrightStar Care® clients by... I am a problem solver and am relentless in finding solutions that improve outcomes. I am a patient/family advocate. My extensive experience enables accurate assessments through critical thinking, attention to detail and excellent communication.
