Eli Gass and Hayley Howard learned, not long ago, that there are more similarities between them than differences.
Even as international colleagues, they have shared many of the same challenges, particularly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. But their motivation to pursue nursing comes from a shared desire to help others. It’s still what motivates them today.
Eli, an emergency room R.N. at Lee’s Summit Medical Center, has been a nurse for nearly 10 years. Hayley, a ward manager at The Wellington Hospital in London for nearly six years, was trained in Scotland.
They recently discussed their career paths, ambitions and challenges over a video chat. You can capture excerpts from that conversation below.
