    "It’s really exciting to work here as an aid because it’s not just the same thing every day. Some of our patients are here for three or four weeks, but a t the same time, they’re always changing and they’re always moving on to acute care, we’re getting new patients from the ICU, said Amanda Harvey, a Madonna nurse aide who's also working toward her nursing degree.

    "I like the way the aid and patient get along. You get to know them better, get real family around them. You feel for them, feel their pain, feel when they are unhappy, when they’re sad and you just want to be there," said Chandra Lukas, a Madonna nurse aide for nearly 14-years.

    "Getting them up and dressed. Shower."

    "People come here and they haven’t showered for months after an accident or an illness. So they’re kind of apprehensive but they’re also a little bit excited about their shower. Usually really appreciate it. Make their bed. Clean their room. Refill their water pitcher. See what’s necessary that needs to be done for them. In between therapies and meals, we want to make sure people are positioned right and comfortable. We give vitals twice a day. We have a thing we call hourly rounding. Sometimes they’re not in their room but we still go and check. Sometimes it’s just getting condiments. for people that they forgot to order. Or setting up their trays. Cutting some food up."

    "We are the nurse’s ears. We are their voice, we are their smell. We can tell when something is not right."

    "Now that I’m in a nursing program, it’s been even more beneficial because it reinforces what I’m learning so I get the clinical experience with school and then I get to come here and work and see things firsthand."

    "I’m so proud to say I work at Madonna. Give it a try. You might not you’ll never leave. I plan to retire here soon."

    Teresa Raven's entire transcript can be read below:

    "My name is Teresa Raven. I’m what’s called a nurse therapist. I’m in charge of the nursing on the floor. On our unit. And making sure that we provide quality nursing services to our patients.

    I was a middle school counselor for Lincoln Public Schools for 31 years. My mom developed kidney cancer and in 2006 she died. And I was within a few years of retirement age from LPS and I decided you know you can give money and buy daffodils and walk the walks but I needed to do something to beat cancer. So I thought well, I’ll go to school and become a nurse and just love other moms and their daughters through that disease.

    So I didn’t initially intend to come to Madonna, I was going to go to a cancer center, but as the Lord provided, it was the best thing that ever happened to me.

    Patients are here for an extended length of time. And so you really get to know them and know their families and build into their lives.

    Our culture is centered on the acronym of Christ: Collaboration, Hospitality, Respect, Innovation, Stewardship and Teaching. And those who aren’t here to serve, I think they feel a little bit out of place and they tend to kind of weed themselves out.

    Madonna provides lots of opportunities to grow professionally. They also give us a plethora of chances to get our CEUs.

    I love my work here. It’s not a job. My husband told me the other day to get a mattress and bring it here because I’m here more than I am at home. And I am blessed."
