Emergency Room Nurse Nicole Cameron, RN, Shares Why She's #LVHNProud

Hard work, determination and tuition reimbursement made her career dream possible

Nicole Cameron, RN, shares why she is #LVHNProud

On her first day at work 15 years ago, Nicole Cameron, RN, was excited to begin her career in health care. As an administrative partner, she facilitated communications among caregivers, patients and visitors. She was responsible for coordinating daily patient flow activities and managing patient charts.

Dedication to growing as a professional

Her passion for patient care grew, and using the tuition reimbursement benefits available to all colleagues at Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) , Cameron earned her nursing degree while working full-time.

"There are so many opportunities for career advancement with LVHN," says Cameron.

Today, she is #LVHNProud to be a nurse in the emergency room at LVH–Hazleton.

"If you work for LVHN or you're thinking about joining LVHN, I want you to know it is possible to follow your dreams if you are dedicated and work hard," she says. "Becoming an ER nurse is the best decision I've ever made."

Dedication to caring for patients

Her dedication to growing professionally is outmatched only by her dedication to her patients. LVHN nurses do so much more than provide world-class care. They are renowned for their compassion and emotional support. The stories about how our nurses go above and beyond for patients are countless, especially during this pandemic.

The pandemic led to an increase in behavioral health patients at LVHN. Cameron saw one challenge was the transportation of those patients to the proper facilities for their care. So, she met with a transportation service to ask for assistance and was able to coordinate transportation through them. For her intuitive thinking and determination, Cameron received the Guldin Award For Efficiency and Innovation in the Clinical Workplace during LVHN's 2022 Service Excellence Awards.

Dedication to a great place to work

"LVHN is a great place to work because colleagues become like family, and together, we treat patients as if they were our family too," says Cameron.
