Hello, I am April Tolbert. I have been a registered nurse for nearly 13 years. I work as a staff nurse in a Chest Pain Unit at a 635 bed hospital in Jackson, TN. In addition to being a staff nurse, I do the staff scheduling and several clerical duties for the department. Other than working as a staff nurse or patient care nurse, I have worked at a nursing home completing Medicare paperwork for payments. I am happy in my current job, but in time would like to advance into a nursing management or healthcare management position. I did not want to limit myself to nursing only though, so I chose the MBA program with an emphasis in healthcare rather than opting for a Master’s Degree in Nursing. I also have a Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Management.
