My name is Kim Katri, and I have been a Registered Nurse for the past 13 years. I graduated from Mendocino College in 2008 and started working for Adventist Health Howard Memorial on the Medical-Surgical floor.
During my years at Howard Memorial, I worked Med/Surg and did some time in the Intensive Care Unit and Case Management Department. In 2019, I started the RN to BSN program through Chico State University and was inducted into their Sigma Theta Tau Chapter. I graduated in 2020, and right after my graduation, I transferred to Adventist Health Ukiah Valley Hospital at the Home department as a Command Center Nurse.
I am registered in the Masters of Nursing Program for Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety. This degree means a lot to me. I want to improve patient safety and promote the best quality of care that nurses can give. Thank you for the scholarship reward, and my goal is to become a mentor and strong leader to all the nurses that will enter the profession.
