get to know me
I chose my specialty because...
it found me. My first nursing job was at Dayton Children's where I was offered a position in Hematology-Oncology even though I had not interviewed for that specific department. I took the job and I have never regretted that decision.
I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...
we are able to provide world class care with a personal touch. Why would I want to work anywhere else when we can provide the best of both worlds right here.
