Susan Bush, RN is a registered nurse in cardiac rehabilitation at North Colorado Medical Center in Greely, Colorado and president of the Rocky Mountain PCNA chapter.
I became interested in nursing when I was a teenager. My mother was ill, so spent a lot of time in the hospital,” says Bush. “I was able to observe nursing and I saw what an impact nurses had on my family. I wanted to do it well in order to give someone else a positive experience.”
After seven years as a PCNA member, Susan Bush started the Rocky Mountain chapter in October 2010 with four other members in Colorado and Wyoming. Today, the chapter provides a way for nurses in Colorado and Wyoming to learn, network, and share ideas. In October 2011, the Rocky Mountain chapter hosted a PCNA Fall Lecture Series program.
“ Our journey has been interesting, challenging, and rewarding,” says Bush. “I would encourage other PCNA members to step up and get involved. If we can overcome the challenges of our region to start a chapter, anyone can do it.”
