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.
