Summary:
Being an operating room nurse in a government hospital, I am constantly being assigned to different clinical departments such as Medical-Surgical, OB Gyne, ENT and Ophthalmology Departments.

Having said that, I am exposed day-in and day-out to numerous clinical cases and with this kind of extensive exposure, I was able to continually enhance my skills, knowledge, techniques as well as develop and create a conducive environment for my fellow medical practitioners to work with ease and for patients to recuperate quickly.

I am a well rounded individual and a dedicated professional nurse. I am dependable in the work place, keen to details, punctual in work timetable & targets, organized, conscientious and responsible.
I am easy to get along with, caring, flexible, adaptable, patient, efficient and skillful.
Qualities that a professional nurse must have.

What I enjoy about being a nurse is the touch of healing I impart to all of my patients, be it with different age and race. The uniqueness of having the tender loving care of a Filipino nurse gives magic and fulfillment to a patient which is happiness for me.

These innate Asian traits of being patient, caring and loving that I posses, culture wise, can be beneficial to both professional colleagues and patients alike.

I also am talented in with paper works. Moreover, I'm engaged in real estate business. I deal with my clients in my spare time, processing different land title documents. I deal with all sorts of people being patient and assertive. I’m very good in public relations and I can easily get along with others. Being flexible and confident with myself is an asset.

I live by with the principle of Honesty, Dedication and Service! I work fast and efficient might it be solely or with a group.
