About Melanie

I am a 26 year old woman who went into the field of nursing because, as cliche as it sounds, I wanted to help others. Helping others brings me a sense of satisfaction knowing that people are being taken care of the right way. I love to educate my patients & like to focus on preventative care- What can YOU do to help yourself? Prior to becoming an RN in the Emergency Room I worked as an aide in the emergency room, was a private home aide, & volunteered as an EMT for both Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corp. and Central Islip Hauppauge Ambulance Corp.
