My name is Andra Alyse and I am a dedicated ICU nurse who loves to empower nursing students and fellow colleagues to reach their fullest potential during school and in the healthcare setting. While in school, I created multiple resources that helped me graduate with honors from my BSN program, and I strive to help other students and nursing professionals succeed in all things nursing! With my thorough study materials, it made studying for the NCLEX much less stressful and I was able to pass in one attempt with the bare minimum of 75 questions (back when that was the minimum)! I want to see the nursing profession continue to expand and provide excellent, competent care. Throughout my first 12 months in the ICU, I pushed myself hard and dedicated many hours toward preparing to take the CCRN exam. In July 2020, I was able to well exceed the minimum required score for certification which allowed me to become board certified as a Critical Care Registered Nurse (CCRN) at a mere 13 months post graduation. After working for a couple of years, my goal is to tackle more cardiac cases and obtain my cardiac medicine and surgery certifications. After that my sights are set on pursuing nurse anesthesia school! I love caring for my patients, improving the healthcare setting, and enhancing their overall experience. I have always enjoyed helping fellow nursing students and professionals. My hope is to continue providing resources to current and future nursing students in order to better the profession and create more competent graduate nurses!
