Angelica Frascolla RN joined OHC this month and we are glad she has joined our team.
Here is her story:
Growing up, I always admired my grandmother for the way she cared for others. Whether it be at her job as a Nurse, or at home; she showed compassion and empathy for others. She was my inspiration to go into nursing, and I was also a nerd for Anatomy & Physiology in high school!
I work as a Registered Nurse at UMass Memorial on an Acute Care floor. I also pursue modeling/acting out in Boston, MA. A few of my coworkers work for OHC as well and referred me to this company. I recently just started working here and have done temperature screenings at Insulet for manufacturing and corporate! I feel it is a great job to have on the side, and everyone is so friendly and welcoming.
My photo is from when I travelled to Haiti for a medical mission trip last February! We stayed for 8 days, and worked in a medical clinic in Banane, Haiti. We triaged patients, consulted with patients, performed wound care, inserted IV’s, administered IV fluids, and prescribed medications directly under the protocols from the WHO. It was a great experience!
My advice for the next generation of nurses is to keep an open mind! There are so many different paths you can take with nursing, and every day will be a different roller coaster ride; you just have to go with the flow, and take care of yourself along the way!
On my days off, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. You can find me at the beach more often than not!
