Nancy, what is your role at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital?
I am an RN CEN (Certified Emergency Nurse) in the emergency room.
What brought you here originally?
I fell in love with the Island after vacationing here, and I took a permanent position approximately 10 years ago.
What are the biggest challenges with your job?
There are few typical days in the ER. We never know what is coming in; we need to be ready for anything at all times. The challenge is to always be ready for any event.
What do you find most rewarding about your work?
Making a difference in a person’s life when they need help — that’s very rewarding. I love it. Everyone here at MVH is an important part of the team. Everyone I work with is dedicated to the same goal, to give our patients the best outcome possible.
