Brittany received her bachelor's degree in nursing in 2008 from Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Before graduating, she did a six month internship in Labor and Delivery, which she loved, but eventually found her niche in the operating room. She was offered her first job as an RN circulator in the operating room at Arkansas Children's Hospital. She loved the job, but having been a patient there as a child made the job much more significant. She was working with some of the very doctors and nurses who had cared for her as a child, an opportunity she relished. While working at ACH, she mainly worked in otolaryngology and opthalmology surgery, also gaining certification to operate various lasers used in the peri-operative setting. After four years at ACH, circumstances lead her to a gastrointestinal surgery center where she mainly worked in Pre-Op and Recovery, as well as reprising her role as an RN circulator for procedures. During her time at the gastrointestinal center, she discovered she loved working with adults as well. After ten months at the gastrointestinal center, she sustained a back injury that resulted in five operations and unfortunately took her out of patient care forever. She is now focusing on something else she is passionate about: writing. She has contributed articles to this website, other nursing websites, and serves as a content contributor for Yahoo. After recovering from her most recent surgery, she plans to return to school to earn her Master's Degree in Nursing Education.
