Hi, my name is Valerie Smith and I am one of Soliant’s new blog writers! As a registered nurse I will be in charge of covering a wide variety of medical and health-related topics. Take a look at some of my experience and credentialing!
I am a critical care and LTAC Registered Nurse who composes and improves medical and nursing content. I received a nursing degree with honors in Greenville, SC, in 2015. Before nursing school, I was a Medical Assistant who worked in home health. After spending nearly a decade working in the healthcare and medical field, I began to design and produce medical, educational curricula as a freelancer. Most recently, I created continuing education and recertification courses in suctioning airway management and EKG interpretation. Previously, I designed a patient-centered mobile app based on nursing diagnoses as a guide for patients to understand their symptoms and awareness of when to seek treatment. I am passionate about delivering the most current medical information to both professionals and the general practitioner.
