Congrats! Centennial “Tell Your Story” Winner 

Patricia A.

“I was 19 with a small child to care for. With my mom’s urging, I decided to go to nursing school. Before I was accepted to school, I thought I should get some hospital experience. I applied to be a nursing assistant. Ingalls called that they had a housekeeping job. I was so disappointed, but decided to take it anyway. I went in to accept the position and during the conversation with the person in HR, I told her my plans for nursing school. She said, “well, let’s see if I can find you something better suited to your plans.”
That one thing changed my life. She found me a Medical Assistant position in Labor and Delivery and the Nursery. That was it for me. I was hooked, I had found my calling. I not only became a Nurse, I went on to get my Masters and my degree as a Certified Nurse Midwife. I would work in the field of Woman’s Healthcare for over 30 years. All because of that one person in HR who decided to go the extra mile. Thank you Ingalls!”
