Debra Bryant, RN ~ "I have been a registered nurse since 2017. I started my new career choice in 2007 as an aide at Haven House in Fossil, Oregon. I loved it and decided I needed to further my education. I obtained my CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant), then my CNA Level-2, then I started my prerequisites for RN (Registered Nurse) in 2009. I acquired my LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) while working at Mid Columbia Medical Center on the Telemetry and Intensive Care Unit floor, working alongside doctors and nurses. I graduated from Columbia Gorge Community College as an RN in 2017.
I am honored to assist our home health clients."
