Carrie Dameron, Assistant Professor - Registered Nursing Department
Carrie Dameron is a full-time instructor in Medical/Surgical Nursing at Ohlone College. She has been a Registered Nurse since 1992, where she worked in medical/surgical/telemetry unit and did staff education. Even though, med/surg is her specialty, Carrie worked in home health hospice for 5 years and enjoyed caring for patients and their families during this difficult time in their lives. Carrie currently works as on-call in med/surg/telemetry units for a local hospital and is the founder of nurses4him.org, an online resource and support for Christian nurses.
Carrie has ANA Certification in Med/Surg, with an emphasis in pain management, spiritual care and staff education. Carrie assisted the Ohlone faculty integrating Spiritual Caring into the Ohlone College Nursing Program, which was completed in April, 2004 and volunteers at a skilled nursing home to provide spiritual care for the elderly. It is a wonderful experience!
Carrie contributes to the Journal of Christian Nursing: spiritual care, teaching, and self care. Look for a new department entitled “Christian Nursing 101” that emphasizes the essentials of Christian nursing.
If you are looking at nursing as a career, a current student, or an RN then I recommend a wonderful book full of insightful real-life vignettes. Inside the ICU: A Nursing Perspective by Melody M. Stenrose is must read for anyone wanting to be an RN! Read more about Melody, the book and to purchase the book!
