Crista M. Bean, RN

Clinical Nurse


What is your fondest memory from your 25 years working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock?

I have so many over the last 25 years! I started in the kitchen in 1994 and was a licensed nursing assistant for many years. I then continued to put myself through nursing school and have been a nurse for more than 10 years.

What inspires you?

My patients and their families inspire me. It makes me happy to make a difference in my community.

What do you like best about your department?

My team in Endoscopy is amazing. I feel so blessed to be a part of it. Endoscopy is my second family, and I look forward to seeing my colleagues every day.

How has COVID-19 affected your work?

COVID-19 has affected all of us at DHMC. As Florence Nightingale quotes, "How very little can be done under the spirit of fear."
