As a certified Neuro RN, I stress to patients the importance of controlling the factors they can in their lives to prevent stroke. I currently am employed at a small rural hospital, where I find education is very important in assuring that nurses and the general public have the tools they need to live a healthy lifestyle and promote the same to others. We live in a society that often thinks about our health too little too late. My goal is to create a pro-active community that acts against stroke before they have to react to it.
