The television docudrama, Rescue 911, really made an impression on a young Colette Rogers.
“This show sparked my love for the medical field,” she said. “As I got older, I realized that nursing school was the way to go.”
Colette started her career nearly 10 years ago in a trauma/surgical intensive care unit. After two years caring for postpartum women and their children at an ICU in Hawaii, she was inspired to pursue labor and delivery nursing.
That’s a change that paid off for Colette.
“It has been the best decision I have made,” Colette said. “I can’t put into words the way it feels to witness the beauty and miracle of life every time I come to work. It is something that never gets old to me.”
She also considers her colleagues at Northside Hospital Cherokee as extended members of her family.
“I know I have the support and help I need every time I step onto the unit. It really is my home away from home.”
