People Making a Difference

Stephanie Robinson

Nurses are the front line of patient care - the eyes and ears of the medical team. They are teachers, care coordinators and advocates whose clinical judgment helps steer the course of medical treatment. This is certainly true at On With Life, where individuals are admitted to our program with multiple complications after sustaining very traumatic injuries. Stephanie Robinson, RN, has seen first-hand the important work of the nursing staff during her two years as a nurse at On With Life's Post-Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation program. 

"I find it so rewarding to have the opportunity to see persons served admitted in a minimally conscious state, and later watch them smile ear to ear as they walk out on the day of their graduation," Stephanie says. "You quickly develop a passion for what you do in the nursing profession and it is truly a responsibility to be a part of these families' lives during such a difficult time." 

In her specific role, Stephanie collaborates with the nursing team to coordinate nursing care, educate persons served and their loved ones about how to maintain wellness and prevent secondary complications, and to build relationships in order to provide clinical expertise and emotional support. 

"As a nurse, we have the opportunity to heal the heart, mind, soul and body of our persons served, their families and ourselves," stated Stephanie. "They may forget my name, but I truly believe they'll never forget how I made them feel." 

When she isn't working with persons served, Stephanie enjoys reading, kayaking and spending time with her husband of seven years, Andy, and their son, Zachary.
