An injury curtailed the path toward culinary arts for Nadine Kerr. Instead, she pivoted to the medical field and made the leap from a small town at Lake Tahoe to UC Davis. It changed her life.

Now, as a nurse in Labor and Delivery, she can’t imagine doing anything else.

Hear Nadine’s full story, in her own words.

In celebration of Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday, 2020 is the Year of the Nurse. Beginning on National Nurses Week (May 6-12) and continuing throughout the year, a special blog will feature the stories, memories and motivations of UC Davis Health nurses.

Hear their words, and get to know why and how they invest such heart, passion, expertise and commitment in their life-changing work.
