Perhaps you have seen her image on a GMC computer, on a recruitment flyer, at a nurse residents’ skills day or even on a billboard. Do you wonder who she is?
She is Yelitza Guzman, BSN, CMSRN. She works full time on 8 North as a certified medical surgical nurse and fills in as a relief charge nurse. Joining the Gwinnett Medical Center family in 2011 with an associate’s degree, she achieved a BSN, a nursing certification and a medical interpretation certification while working full time. Currently, she is studying to be an acute care nurse practitioner, with an anticipated graduation in the fall of 2018.
When asked what keeps her at Gwinnett Medical Center, her emphatic answer is the people! Yelitza loves people and her genuine caring and concern is appreciated by patients, families, doctors, nurses and all who interact with her. She keeps in touch with many patients and families, and they remember her over the years with fondness and gratitude. Coworkers become friends and enjoy her encouragement, presence during childbirth, offers of childcare and shared milestones.
Yelitza participates in recruiting events and is a mentor to students, new and experienced nurses. Her excellent assessment skills and clinical judgement are sought after and she willingly shares her expertise. While Yelitza truly exemplifies the art of caring, she is equally committed to the science of nursing.
A lifelong learner, she in an enthusiastic attendee of trauma and nursing conferences. In 2016, she was named one of Atlanta’s top ten nurses by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. She has been a successful participant in the Nurse Advancement Program and embraces one of Gwinnett Medical Center’s slogans: You Belong Here, as she truly makes others feel a sense of belonging.
When not working, she is usually studying or spending time with family or friends. Yelitza and her high school sweetheart have been married 20 years and have two teenagers, a son and a daughter.
What you may not know: Yelitza loves to read (even non-class work) and is currently reading The Psychology of Persuasion. If there were a song "You Belong Here," we would see Yelitza dancing (a favorite hobby) to the tune with the same excitement she has for nursing!
