About Courtney

Hi all! Ever since I was little I knew I had a passion for nursing. Working in nursing homes and now home care has reassured me, nursing is the job for me! What I love about being a caregiver is the one-on-one time. I am allowed to really get to know a person, not just read their charts and talk strictly medical history. Home-care allows me to create a relationship that is unable to be made anywhere else.
