Meet the Clinical Educator: Brittany Dallas, BSN, RN
Brittany Dallas recently assumed the role of Clinical Educator after serving as a nurse in Labor and Delivery for eight years. “I wanted to become a nurse because I love caring for people,” Brittany says. “I also knew I wanted to work with babies. When I was in my Labor and Delivery clinical in nursing school, I fell in love with this area and knew this was what I wanted to do. There is something so special about witnessing a new mother seeing her baby for the first time.”
When asked why she chose to pursue a career at NMMC, Brittany says it was the caring culture that helped her make the decision. “I went to clinicals at several different places, but this felt like home to me. This is a great organization that cares for its employees,” Brittany says.
Brittany and her husband, Camden, have three children. They love spending time together and going to the beach.
