We’re stronger together!
When I was 19 years old and in nursing school, I started working at Bronson Battle Creek. At first, I was able to shadow nurses and help them with basic tasks. It was truly an amazing experience and a great start to my career. After graduation, I became a full-time nurse on the medical surgical oncology unit. I worked there for a while, gained some leadership experience and then went on to work in the emergency department. Later, I took a position in patient safety and quality, which allowed me to take a step back from the bedside and work in a role that supports the team from a quality perspective. Eventually, I came back to my clinical roots and became a nursing manager.
During this entire journey, I have received tuition assistance through Bronson – both to help with my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Bronson is very invested in seeing its employees continue their education. As a benefit to all of our nurses, Bronson will also pay for advanced certifications.
Something that is really valued here at Bronson is diversity. We have a variety of people on the team with different backgrounds and skill sets. I see this as a major strength to our team because we can more easily take care of all our community members – no matter their background or beliefs. I’m proud to serve the community of Battle Creek. We’re stronger together!
