“I always wanted a career in healthcare. Cortland Regional has done
so much to help me realize that dream.
Cortland Regional played an important role in my journey to becoming a
nurse. I’ve progressed from nursing assistant to LPN to RN throughout
my career. And, I did it all while juggling a busy schedule of working
while I went to school.
Throughout my career, Cortland Regional has been supportive of my continuing
education. When I was pursuing my LPN and then my RN, I was able to flex
my schedule so that I could also concentrate on my studies. I don’t
think I could have done it without that support.
But my education didn’t stop with my schooling. Since I started at
Cortland Regional, I’ve gone from the medical-surgical floor to
ICU, and I know there’s opportunity to work in other units as I
continue my career here. I’m also fully supported and encouraged
to attend educational conferences and seminars. It feels like I have unlimited
opportunity here as a healthcare professional.
My goal is to learn and grow as a nurse, and that’s why I chose Cortland
