Befitting this description fully is your organization and thus my desire to be an affiliate.

Concerning my work experience, I have had opportunities in the past to work in various positions in different nursing institutions that I believe has had a great impact on my learning journey. Currently, I work as an RN senior case manager at the United Health Care and as an RN supervisor at Montgomery Nursing Home. As such, if hired I come with a wealth of experience and skills such as leadership, communication, problem-solving and technical skills that will positively influence the proceedings of your organization.
