August 2017 NCNA Member Spotlight, Ashley Scott, RN

Ashley Scott, RN is inspired daily by being able to help others in their time of need, especially when the smallest thing she is able to do for her patients means the most to them.

When Ashley was 3 years old she was in a car fire. As a result she had to undergo numerous surgeries for the burns and endure the recovery process. The nurses that helped her along the way led her to the decision to become a nurse herself. She has been in nursing for over 3 years now and just took on a new role at the Jaycee Burn Center in Chapel Hill.

From her experience as a child, she is able to connect with her burn patients and give them encouragement to make it through the hardest part - to once again be able to do things outside of the hospital like they once did. She is able to show she is living proof there is life afterwards and that you can make dreams come true.

“Working with burn patients was a dream of mine before even becoming a nurse! When my patients say I am their "angel" or they are glad to have me back as their nurse, it makes me feel like I am in the right place doing exactly what I was meant to do,” Ashley told NCNA.

Ashley’s Advice for a New Nurse:  Not every moment will be easy, but with a strong team alongside you, you will get through the weakest of moments. You may even cry with the patients and families, and that is okay!
