Ashley Shaw, FNP-C
"Being a nurse is about more than medicine. You always hear that, but I never really understood what it meant until I started working at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. Patients – and especially their families – see nurses as the connection between them and cold, confusing world of diagnostic test, medications, and terminology that is equal hard to pronounce and understand. Taking the time to build relationships and establish trust with patients is vital. I’ve continued to be that connection for my patients."
