Stories of Success

Glenda started as a float CNA when she came to Hospital for Special Care 13 years ago. Working on multiple units gave her an opportunity to learn about all the unique patients in our care. Spending time on our complex pediatric unit caring for infants and children had a profound impact on her. When a full-time position on the unit became available, Glenda knew she had found the right role. Today, she loves to be a part of each child’s unique journey, watching them grow and keeping them safe. Glenda has learned so much about the wide array of medical conditions our patients experience, and says no other workplace offers the same rewarding environment of care. She pursued other opportunities for a short time, but returned to Hospital for Special Care after realizing this is where she felt at home.

Stories of Success

Elizabeth knew it was time to grow in her career, after working as a floor nurse for five years. She obtained her Master’s Degree and completed her clinicals with the help of Hospital for Special Care’s tuition reimbursement program. She is broadening her experience as an off-shift manager where she now oversees daily operations and manages staffing. She structures her daily rounds to ensure that each patient’s clinical needs have been met and that the nursing staff on each unit have the resources they need to provide excellent care. The relationship she has with her peers motivates her to become an effective leader. She believes teamwork helps achieve the best possible results: to get patients home.

Stories of Success

Lynette wanted to be a nurse since she was six years old. She followed her dream and became a licensed practical nurse, joining Hospital for Special Care’s innovative Autism Inpatient Unit after spending time working in pediatric home care. Lynette’s unique understanding and connection to the children she cares for comes from family experience with autism spectrum disorder. She draws inspiration each day from knowing she helps meet a critical community need for autism care. Lynette is now pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree with support and encouragement from her colleagues. She says that embracing diversity and working towards inclusion helps her collaborate more effectively with her peers and support each patient’s individual strengths.
