Hi there! NICU Nurse Tori here. Welcome to the most special corner of my website.
For over 8+ years now I have been working bedside in the secret gem of a unit called the
"Neonatal Intensive Care Unit." After years of collecting memories, experiences, & developing a career, I have finally mustered up the courage to start this Blog.
A little more about my Professional Life.
I graduated from the University of Arizona (#beardown), with my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (December 2012). I moved home to Los Angeles, CA where I took my NCLEX & obtained my first job as a NICU Nurse Resident.
I completed the 22-week residency program & started working as a Clinical Nurse I.
Quickly I took on positions within my unit and became a member of several committees, championed many bedside educational opportunities, trained as a core staff for the "Small Baby Unit," specialized in Surgical NICU, and obtained my Clinical Nurse III. I also sat on the Shared Governance board, a hospital-wide association to bring all areas of the hospital together to collect data and make improvements with nursing input at the forefront.
After moving to Los Angeles CA, I decided to take some "Local Travel" positions to expand my NICU experiences. I have worked at two Children's Hospital, University hospitals,
Non-Profit Hospitals, & Trauma I hospitals, all amazing experiences!
I am thrilled to be starting this new journey and to share my experiences along the way.
I hope you find this fun, informative, and inspiring!
