I am currently the psychiatric nurse practitioner in the psychiatric emergency department at Johns Hopkins Hospital. My journey at Johns Hopkins starts in 2006, when I went to the SON and completed the accelerated BSN program in 2007. I immediately went to work on the unit where I did my leadership rotation - Meyer 3/Psych ED - and stayed there until 2013 after receiving my MSN at University of Maryland. I briefly left Hopkins for about two years when they did not have many (if any) psychiatric NP positions and did consult work in geri-psychiatry. However, once this position opened in the ED, I was eager to return to my home base and have been here since September 2015.
