Teri Mills, RN -- Real Nurse
It's important, as Teri gets introduced to more people through her interviews, that people understand who Teri really is. She is not a nursing instructor that hasn't touched a patient in 10 years! No, Teri is completely hands on. Teri is my role model because she is able to keep up with the latest clinical information, teach theory and apply it at the bedside, while providing all the personal and emotional support nursing students need as they confront issues they never imagined they would be in the middle of when they signed up for nursing school.
In addition to that, she is also a nurse practitioner, and works in a clinic during the summer to stay up-to-date in that role as a primary care provider. Teri's energy is boundless, and her commitment to being a positive force for change beyond her corner of the world is inspiring to all nurses who think they'll never have a voice.
Every person should have a nurse like Teri Mills.
