<P>38 PHOENIX FOCUS | Fall 2014 When I was looking into nursing, I saw there was the opportunity to do so many different things, she says. I was fascinated by the different avenues you could take. Getting her feet wet With that in the back of her mind, Streleski-Flanders began her career of caring for others. After she completed her internship at Women and Childrens Hospital of Buffalo in her native New York, she had her pick of jobs, but she chose to continue on the path she had started. It offered me the two areas that interested me most: womens health and pediatrics, she says. She worked in high-risk obstetrics before deciding to challenge herself with a new role. I was trying to keep babies in, and six years later I went to the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit), she says. I went from big people to one-to-two pounders. She relished the opportunity to grow in her profession. I come across colleagues who find an area they like right at the beginning, and they stay there and never leave, she says. I think to myself what an opportunity I had to go from womens health to the NICU—to be able to learn something and to apply some of the information I already knew. Sharing her knowledge After a dozen years, though, what was new and exciting was no longer enough of a challenge for Streleski-Flanders. I still really enjoyed the babies, but the routine of bedside care wasnt stimulating enough for me, she remembers. I just needed to have a little more. I was ready to spread my wings. One of her favorite parts of her job had been sharing her knowledge with the new nurses, helping them gain their footing in their chosen career. With that in mind, Streleski-Flanders became the clinical nursing educator for the NICU. She had never been an instructor before, but that didnt stop her from embracing her new role. I enjoyed working with the new nurses, introducing them truly to the world of nursing and being one of the first faces they saw going into their career, she says. I wanted to do a good job and be that coach and mentor so they could flourish. I loved seeing them change as they moved along. I enjoyed working with the new nurses, introducing them truly to the world of nursing and being one of the first faces they saw going into their career.
