I have a purpose
I am a valuable member of my community
Those around me seek my knowledge and strength
I am important needed and resourceful
I will be successful beyond everyone's expectations
And I will let no one discourage my dreams.
My name is Patricia Hoffman, and I am the Health Science and Technologies teacher for Weatherford High School. I have a Nursing Science degree from Tarleton State University and am a registered nurse. I started my interest in nursing as a certified nurse aide. I have to say, passing that exam was one of the best moments in my life! I learned to have compassion for patients as a CNA, and I hope my students that are interested in the health care field will fall in love with the "service of serving" as I did. I continued my education and went to work at Plaza Medical Hospital in the critical care unit, where I cared for acutely ill patients, served on the ethics committee, and rapid response team. I have always been fascinated with home care, and the benefits healing in the home for the patient. I went to work for Amedisys Home Health as a field RN case manager, and moved on to clinical manager, and then corporate nursing as a quality care coordinator. I also am a certified EMT, and am the instructor for the Medstar Campus at WHS.
Much of my past experiences included education of patients, and new employees. It was my favorite part of the job. I can't wait to share my experiences, and share in the learning process with the students. I am passionate about the health care field and all the possibilities it holds for our future members. I am looking forward to an amazing year.
