PortfolioGen Profile for Del Hollis

  • PortfolioGen Member Since 2018


 To provide consistently outstanding nursing care that enhances all patient outcomes, distinguishes me among peers, and improves the organization to which I belong. 


 To make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of my patients, friends, family and colleagues through the use of my talents, personality, knowledge, and caring influence.


    I chose nursing as my profession because I have always had a passion for helping others; I love people; and there is great reward in making someone “whole” again.

     I believe that the core of nursing is caring for your patients and the focus of nursing is providing the most quality healthcare and support to your patients and their families.

    My vision for myself as a nurse is that I will always give my best to my patients, their families, and my fellow coworkers.

    To live out my philosophy, every day I must remember that my patients and coworkers will rely on me to give my utmost effort.

    My patients and their families expect to heal and recover from their maladies and I have a significant role in assisting to reach that goal.

    My fellow health care professionals will rely on me each and every time I show up for work, so my efforts must always count.

    I must always take care of myself so that I can be the best version of me.  Nursing is physically and emotionally demanding and will take its toll on me if I am not fit enough to keep pace.
