Raquel Harvey, RN at Nickalus Children's Hospital Miami,FL

“I chose nursing as a career because ever since I was a little girl that has been the career path for me to follow in my mom’s footsteps. I was very happy when I was hired in 1998 at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, because this would allow me to use my knowledge and the skills I learned in school. I currently work in neurology and have taken care of many children with epilepsy. It brings me great joy to be able to see a patient walking and talking again and expressing thanks for the care received. I have seen many great changes at the hospital. A recent enhancement is the practice of care teams working together with patient families during rounds. Nicklaus Children's Hospital has prepared me to not only give excellent care to the families but also to be a voice for my unit."

Dorcas Torres, RN at Nicklaus Children's Hospital Miami, FL

“I love being nurse and working at Nicklaus Children's Hospital. My journey to become a nurse began when my son was diagnosed with leukemia at Nicklaus Children's Hospital. He was a frequent flyer and had nurses Michelle Burke, Nicole Lynkechow and Michelle Tai caring for him during the most difficult times of our lives. I watched in amazement as each nurse became a vital part of my son’s life, not only in carrying out orders and giving him treatments. but each also became a part of our family, always giving in every way possible. After my son’s death, I made to decision to become a nurse and will never regret my choice.
I began as a care assistant and have been an RN-BSN for the past four years and now have the opportunity to give back and be that caregiver who listens effectively and works efficiently to create a nurturing, comforting atmosphere for those I care for. During my time as a nurse I have to had the opportunity to be a part of a team of nurses who bring about change. In an effort to lessen the discharge times on my unit I accepted the challenge of becoming the admission/discharge RN. I have the pleasure of working with an amazing team of nurses who work together and go the extra mile to make Nicklaus Children's Hospital a memorable place.”
