Working and precepting at ASM encouraged me to grow as an entry-level provider. The preceptors that I’ve worked with have been knowledgeable and enthusiastic teachers, and held me to the highest standards. I feel lucky to work here and gain experience with emergencies, critical transports, as well as having the unique opportunity to learn ventilator management. I am excited to further my career with ASM and become the provider I aspire to be.
