Bio: Carrie Cronkite has been a registered nurse since 1998 and has worked in various health care settings. She still currently works as a registered nurse and also has a home business called Creativelycc where she makes handmade soaps and sews. Carrie loves to inspire and encourage new nurses. She has also served as a preceptor for new graduates and continues to inspire others to consider nursing as a career. It is Carrie's desire to encourage seasoned nurses to be role models for new and younger nurses by encouraging, teaching and coaching them while they are still in the beginning stages of their career. This is a delicate time in their career where we can either make or break it for them. Nurses are needed more than ever before - so let's inspire and be positive examples and role models for our younger and new nurses to get them off and running to a great career.
