Year of the Nurse: Carter and Nurse Ivory

Nurse Ivory helped start Carter’s case. Carter is one year old and had never had private duty nursing care before. On her first shift, Ivory walked in the door and immediately put all of Carter’s mom’s worries to rest. Ivory and Carter have already formed an amazing bond in the few months that she’s been part of his care team.

“Ivory is amazing!” Carter’s mom, Shannon, says. “I was scared to have my son be with someone I didn’t know. Spending that first day with her has enabled me to work without worry. I know Carter is in amazing hands. I honestly believe my son hates it when Ivory leaves!”

It’s clear Carter loves having Ivory as his nurse. And Ivory definitely loves being an Aveanna nurse! “I have only been employed with Aveanna Healthcare for just a few months,” Ivory shares, “but within these short months I have felt like family. The scheduling department and nursing supervisors put their hearts into their jobs. I’m so thankful to be part of the team!”

Thank you so much for being part of the Aveanna team, Nurse Ivory. You are so important to your patient and to the entire Aveanna family. Happy Year of the Nurse!
