A Thankful Nurse

This article was provided by Healthtrust Workforce Solutions.


“Melissa L., ICU R.N., is thankful for the support of HealthTrust Workforce Solutions and HCA Healthcare throughout COVID-19. Although Melissa was afraid at the start of the pandemic, Melissa was comforted as HealthTrust and HCA Healthcare provided exceptional resources and proper PPE. Melissa’s compassion for her patients grew throughout her time treating COVID-19 patients during the pandemic. She truly learned the importance of spending quality time with her patients and making every encounter meaningful, which led to a deeper appreciation for her role as a nurse.       

Aside from the positive support from HealthTrust Workforce Solutions and HCA Healthcare, Melissa is thankful for how every nurse leaned on one another and provided support to each other during COVID-19. Melissa’s advice to new nurses is to put all of their fears aside and to know that they are going to make a difference in the lives of many patients, who will ultimately make a difference in their life as well.”
