Nurses have one of the most challenging and rewarding jobs out there. They are some of the most dedicated professionals in the health care field, providing comfort, respite and necessary care to those who fall ill.
If you think 9 to 5 can be tiring, try being a nurse. Each day brings new sets of personalities and ailments, all of which nurses deal with grace and aplomb. They need to switch gears constantly from working directly with patients to doctors and doing office work.
Tracy Williams is one of St. Mary’s amazing nurses. She is a registered nurse and wears many different hats. She is a charge nurse, a labor and delivery nurse, and an ER and surgical nurse.
“I don’t ever remember consciously making the decision to become an RN.” she said. “I remember back to when I was a child, doctoring up my dolls, and I believe this was always the plan for my life.”
Williams obtained her associate’s degree at Walla Walla Community College in June 2013, and then went on to earn her bachelor’s degree at LCSC in December 2016.
“There is not one thing I can single out about what I love most about my job,” Williams continued. “I love helping the patients with a Band-Aid, education, or a hug. I love knowing that I can help make someone’s day better, and I love knowing that what I do makes a difference.”
