Most nurses would think Paulette Sita RN is sitting pretty! Paulette, a Case Manager Supervisor, and husband Collins, a pharmacist, both are employed at Fawcett Memorial Hospital where they even get to have lunch together. Paulette’s nursing background includes expertise in GYN ONC at Sarasota Memorial and in hospice care at Tidwell hospice prior to the last several years as a Case Manager. But this accomplished professional woman is not about to rest on her laurels. It’s back to school for her!
This mother of four says “my main thing is for the children to see that if I can do it, they can do it. It is so imperative to get a college education and anytime in life you can further yourself in whatever direction you want to take in your field. Shelby, 25, Eion, 20, Eric, 19 and Gavin, 16 were really young when I finished my first degree. I see this as providing a positive role model for them and they will realize how much work is going into it. If mom can do it, they can too!”
“I am excited and a little bit nervous. It’s been 13 years since I finished my RN and I was thinking about going back to school. Bonnie Ziai, RN MSN, Director of Education, arranged a university day at Fawcett in June and I met the SNAC Nurse Education Navigator that day. She steered me to a RN to MSN program with the case management specialty from American Sentinel University. It was like fate was speaking to me!”
Dr. Bonnie Hesselberg with Bonnie Zios Fawcett Memorial Hospital. Two successful days at University! #SNAC #FutureofNursing
