I work in KC's urban core, an area rife with crime, poverty, and few opportunities. As a home health nurse, I'm exposed to a variety of physical and mental ailments: wounds, heart failure, stroke, schizophrenia, etc.
I must assess, evaluate, and plan care for patients with limited resources to achieve optimal patient outcomes.
