It took several turns and detours in life before UC Davis Health PICU nurse Sandie Dial found her path. After 10 years of completing prerequisites while working as an accountant, she got into the nursing profession and discovered her passion for pediatrics and providing care in the ICU environment.
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.
