Meet Mary

RN, BSN | Former Student Ambassador | Everett Community College

Mary is a new graduate nurse who currently works on a Progressive Care/Medical Telemetry Unit. Graduating during the second surge of the COVID-19 cases, Mary’s unit was temporarily transformed into the COVID designated unit, thus started her nursing career by caring for COVID+ patients.

She graduated with her Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) from Everett Community College in June 2020. During her second year of nursing school, she decided to gain hands on experience by working as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) on a Perioperative and Post Anesthesia Care Unit. After graduating nursing school, she was offered an RN Residency position at the same hospital that she worked at as a CNA. She is currently furthering her education by pursing her Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) through the University of Washington Bothell and expects to graduate with her BSN in December 2021.

Being raised in the Philippines by her grandparents, she was raised with values that reflected serving the community. Unfortunately, a few years after moving to the U.S., Mary’s grandfather, whom was a father figure in her life, was diagnosed with End Stage Renal/Kidney Disease and was given a poor prognosis. Mary shares that the most difficult part of this unfortunate situation was not being by her grandpa’s side during his lowest points of being at the hospital, but what gave her hope was the updates that she and her mom would receive from the nurses who cared for her grandfather. Through this, Mary was inspired to pursue nursing immediately after high school to honor her grandparent’s value of serving others especially during their most vulnerable times.'
