Savanna is a devoted and committed Family Nurse Practitioner, ANCC certified. She has six years of nursing experience in fast-paced, medical-surgical united as well as 600 hours of clinical preceptorship with a family practice physician. While working in the hospital, she has cared for multiple surgical patients. She is willing and ready to learn new skills and explore any new adventures to advance her career.
Becoming a registered nurse changed the way she thinks about health and the future. Savanna never realized how much meaning this career would add to her soul. As a high school graduate, she was a little confused about what she wanted to do with her future. Looking at her options at Northeast State Community College, she decided to apply for the ADN program with hopes of beginning a career and working towards a goal to better her young family. She realized that this was exactly what she was meant to be. Although nursing has not been an easy earned education or career, she cannot think of an alternative path to fulfill her life purpose. Continuing her education in nursing at King University has been a dynamic adventure with each course allowing her to build a more thorough knowledge base.
Becoming a Masters-prepared nurse has been her ultimate goal from the beginning, but she can envision herself eventually fulfilling her doctoral degree in nursing as well. She is fortunate that she has found her career path at a young age so that she can continually flourish, thrive, and prosper for years to come. She is hopeful that she will be thought of as a comforting, trustworthy, compassionate, and intelligent family nurse practitioner in her future practice. She will always strive to stay in tune with the most current practices and treatments as well as gain more experience in whatever field she may be practicing.
The King University Professional Pillars are meant to be building blocks with each piece being equally important to the structure. In the medical profession, it is so important that we hold true to our Christian values and practice them. Integrity, commitment, service, accountability, civility, and compassion are a key to a successful career as a healthcare provider. Nursing has changed the way she thinks about life in general. Although it is the profession or practice of providing care to the sick and vulnerable, it involves plenty of challenges. We are challenged to protect, prevent harm, promote, and optimize our patient’s health. She is determined to incorporate these values into practice at all times, making this her ultimate philosophy as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
