The Health Ministry Team is excited to announce the arrival of student nurse Sarah Rodriguez. Sarah will be working with Parish Nurse Mandy Nester to fulfill her Practicum requirements for her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Below is a message from Sarah. I know everyone will welcome her with open arms.

Hello, my name is Sarah Rodriguez. I am an RN currently in my last semester to complete my BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) degree. I have the opportunity to work with Mandy Nester, the Parish Nurse, and the Health Ministry Team at Cary Presbyterian. Through this experience, I hope to gain a better understanding of parish nursing. My past RN experience includes staff nursing in inpatient hospital settings and home hospice nursing. Although originally from southeastern Wisconsin, I currently live in Cary, NC with my husband, Jon, and two school-aged kids, Lucy and Zach. Thank you for welcoming me into your faith community! I appreciate the opportunity!
