NURSING

Why do people do what they do?

I am public health clinical nurse specialist (PHCNS-BC), who uses a framework of case management and visual art practice. A board-certified public health clinical nurse specialist (PHCNS-BC) by American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Unlike nurses at hospitals, clinics or in home care, she works mostly in prevention. She assesses health conditions and works with health-related service providers and community organizations in order to maintain the well-being of individuals and families, especially women in periods of transition.   She believes that nursing is a form of art which requires extensive knowledge and skills as well as the courage to leap at new challenges. She sees her art works as means to reach out to people whose lives are divided by different languages, cultures, and expectations.
