Nurse Spotlight: Brittany Nixon, RN

Posted by HealthTrust Workforce Solutions on Jan 29, 2019 10:10:48 AM

Congratulations to StaRN graduate Brittany Nixon, RN, on being named an Employee of the Month at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center! Brittany completed the StaRN program in January 2018 and has made a positive impact on both the staff and patients at this HCA Healthcare facility on Florida’s Treasure Coast. 

“Growing up, I've always enjoyed caring for others – it all began with my grandmother whom I've cared for since the age of 8,” Brittany says. “She is truly my inspiration. For every patient I provide care for, I always refer back to my grandmother and remind myself to be the nurse that I would want my grandmother to have!”
