Judy Wu’s story:
I selected a nursing for my professional career because of my father.
It was a long time ago. One day I received a phone call from my family in Taiwan that my father had a life-threatening accident and was rushed to at the local hospital in Taipei. I immediately purchased a plane ticket to fly home. After long flight and multiple airport transfers I finally arrived in Taipei.
Unfortunately, my father died before I arrived and sadly, I didn’t make it home in time to see my father for the last moment of his life. During the time at the hospital, I heard about the compassion, dedication, and professionalism of nurses who provided care for my father. It deeply touched my heart until now.
Soon after I returned to the United States I applied to the nursing program at a local college. The courses were very rigorous at the beginning of the program. They were especially difficult for me due to English not being my native language. I worked hard and spent extra hours studying to achieve my goals.
I graduated with honors and worked as a med surge nurse. I worked long hours and learned a lot from my site supervisor. One morning my supervisor approached me and asked if I was interested in an open position in infection control/employee health. I applied for the job and got it. Starting my new role under her guidance gave a big boost to my confidence. I have enjoyed my job ever since.
Later on, I learned from a coworker of the agency called “Occupational Health Connections “ which had an excellent reputation. I decided to apply for a job at OHC since (2013). Those eight years I experienced a value of the OHC’s philosophy and I have been a joyous highlight of my career.
Nancy Clover is the heart and soul of OHC and also she is a fun and kind person to work with. Under her leadership she has build a strong team that delivers consistent high quality resources and education to OHC’s work force partners. She is a true pioneer in the field of occupational health placement. I’m so proud and fortunate to be a part of the OHC family.
