M. Scott Nelson, BS, RN, ACM
Unit Management Nurse
What is your fondest memory in your 25 years working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock?
My fondest memories are working in the Hematology/Oncology Special Care Unit (HSCU). The relationships we formed with our patients remain precious to me. The courage and perseverance I witnessed over the years was humbling.
The camaraderie with the HSCU staff was also very special. I had the privilege of working with very fine people. For those still here and see this—thank you!
It has been a joy to work with the attending physicians for the Hematology/Oncology section. Thank you for your friendship and everything you've taught me over the years.
I have very fond memories of interns, residents and fellows. I learned a great deal from them.
One of the finer things of working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is seeing the development and journey everyone goes through over the years. Having the chance to put in a nurse's opinions on issues of the day was fun and interesting.
What about your job inspires you?
The patients and their families inspire me to have the opportunity to be their nurse in a place such as the HSCU.
What do you like best about your department?
I like the critical thinking my job requires. It challenges to me to continue to grow and learn. This is very exciting times in Utilization Management (UM), and I look forward to the future of the field.
The best part of my work is the people I work with on a daily basis. A gift for sure!
