This week on the podcast we have Rosina Garcia, BSN. She is a pediatric ECMO nurse at one of the largest children’s hospitals in Los Angeles. When Rosina first started out in nursing, she had multiple epiphanies about what exactly she wanted to do in nursing and found herself loving pediatrics.
As she was working in a pediatric ICU, she discovered ECMO nursing and started asking questions. (ECMO = Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation). She eventually made the transition into that specialty. She tells us how their ECMO department is organized, what ECMO is, why nurses are a good fit for the specialty, how many shifts you work, what you do during your shift, and so much more. Her passion for ECMO nursing is contagious! Be sure and listen to this episode and share with others.
