“I believe in nursing, as nursing is at the core of who I am as a human. I answered this calling to help others, in my many roles in healthcare, my most rewarding role was being a CNA. I remember the foundation of nursing through my years as a CNA, and I have taken that with me each and every day of my nursing career. I am so proud to be a part of an origination that is leading the way for the next generation of healthcare workers for years to come. I am honored to be the Nursing Director of this school and a part of SunMar Healthcare.”
Nicole enjoys nursing, traveling, and being with her friends.
