Greetings classmates and fellow bloggers. Here is the beginning of my path down the technology road…my first blog on my new website…ashleylozano.cikeys.com.
As you can see, this is me on the side menu, I was getting ready for my RN Pinning Ceremony in 2013. I initially wanted to go to school to be a doctor but I was placed in a vocational class to become a CNA my senior year of high school and stayed in nursing since then (13 years). I was a CNA for a couple years but the pay was horrible for all the hard work so I became a waitress and a nanny to put myself through college. I received an AA in Math and Science, an AA in Liberal Arts, and my ADN in Nursing. I finished a BA in Psychology at CSU San Bernardino and I am now completing my BSN at CSU Channel Islands.
On 10/4/2015, I will be married a year to Ismael Lozano. We just found out we are pregnant (still VERY early so keep those fingers crossed). I have two sisters and my parents will be married 40 years on 12/31/2015. I am very close with my family and my husband is close with his family as well.
I love to wine and dine, listen to live music, try new things, dance, sing karaoke, and play volleyball.
I work at an ambulatory care clinic in Thousand Oaks. These are the responsibilities of my position: Charge Nurse, triage Monday through Friday, eight to five, prescription refills and prior-authorizations for two providers, resource cart daily check, fluoride monthly reports, nurse visits: PPD readings, injections, wound care, patient self injection education, sample medication management: calling reps for stations A,B,C, and Urgent Care, receiving and stocking sample medications for stations A,B,C, and Urgent Care, Patient Assistance Program medication processing, medication room inspection and month-end report. I love my job. I hope to stay for a long time and eventually work there as a Nurse Practitioner.
