About the Author

My name is Dave Dovell, RN and I appreciate you taking the time to get to know me.  I currently work as a registered nurse on a cardiac step-down unit with electrophysiology, cardiology, heart failure, and vascular patients.  I also have emergency medical experience including 7 years as an EMT Crew Chief and mentor within a 911 system and 2 years in a busy ER as a tech.

I have an extensive background outside of medicine as well, ranging from teaching to management.  I draw on my experiences each time I go to work to the benefit of my patients and colleagues.  I encourage all nurses to do the same, as well all bring a unique background and set of skills to the profession.

My purpose in creating this blog is to share some of the best stories, advice, and tips I have acquired over the years.  Nursing is a wonderful profession and it is both extremely challenging as well as rewarding.  I hope I can make your next shift a little easier and you find value in my stories and advice.
