Amanda Hazeltine joined OHC last November and has been doing covid screenings at a construction site and biotech company.
Here is Amanda’s story:
‘I was inspired to pursue nursing as a second career after I saw the wonderful nursing and healthcare my mother received during her battle with cancer. After graduation, one of my nursing school friends suggested that I look into Occupational Health Connections, which has turned into a wonderful opportunity to help public health efforts during this pandemic to screen for COVID-19. I enjoy the flexibility and variety of positions available through OHC that work for my busy schedule, and the great support we receive from OHC leadership. I also work as an inpatient oncology nurse, a graduate school of nursing teaching associate, and am pursuing my Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. My advice to the next generation of nurses is to always remain curious, keep learning, find a supportive environment, treat your patients with compassion and as if they were family, and be kind to yourself–you got this.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids, lap swimming, running and being outdoors. :)’
