Nursing is a purpose in Alana Weber’s life. From a young age, the calling to help people through the field of nursing was felt through the experience of having excellent nurses through pediatric surgeries. In time, that calling evolved into a love and passion for teaching nursing and improving diabetes care.
Alana Weber has served in the nursing ranks since 2006. Starting her career in the cardiac intensive care unit, she worked to recover open-heart surgical patients to wellness and health. After working seven years on a cardiac intensive care unit, she moved into level one trauma nursing for another three years. During that time she got to serve in leadership as a charge nurse and house supervisor.
During her time in floor nursing, Alana discovered her favorite nursing task was training new staff to become critical nurses, open-heart recovery nurses, and acute level one trauma trained. That is how the passion for teaching began. In the last three years her career took a turn into education for a corporate health care company designing and implementing glycemic optimization projects aimed at improving diabetes care in hospitals. She has experience in teaching applicable evidence based changes to nurses relating to diabetes care in hospitals throughout the United States.
As a nurse educator in corporate glycemic optimization, teaching nurses about diabetes management created a desire to refine the art of nursing education within Alana. One of the most important aims as an educator is to inspire, uplift and encourage others so that they can have a passion for the profession of nursing, forwarding evidence-based medicine and improving care. Providing nurses and students of nursing with new knowledge, training and evidence-based processes is the ultimate goal; in contribution to the great profession of nursing.
