Learn more about Kim:
When did you start at CBHA?
August of 2007
What is your job title and day-to-day responsibilities?
As a RN Charge Nurse, I am responsible for prioritizing patient care and flow throughout the clinic, communicating with patients and providers, and administering medications.
What is your favorite thing about working at CBHA?
I enjoy working with my coworkers. We all work well together. I also love being able to help patients, especially pediatric patients, with complex medical needs. It’s rewarding being able to help families get the supplies they need in order to care for them at home.
How has CBHA helped you grow in your career?
I have learned a lot while working here. I have especially learned a lot about pediatric and adult immunizations and ordering specialty supplies and medications for patients.
What has been your favorite project at work so far?
Anything immunization or pediatric-related. I enjoy working on the childhood vaccine program.
How do you turn a bad day into a good one?
By trying to have a positive attitude.
What did you dream of becoming when you were a kid?
Nursing was not my first career choice. Growing up, I wanted to be a preschool teacher or daycare worker. It was not until I was in high school and started volunteering at a hospital that I decided I wanted to go into nursing, specifically pediatric-focused.
Where is your favorite place to travel?
Oregon coast with my family
Anyone you would like to thank or final words?
I would like to thank my fellow coworkers, especially the charge nurses. We all get along well together and help each other out. They make working here fun!
