Jane’s nursing career spanned from travel nursing to labor and deliver to finally OR nursing. On transitioning to OR nursing, she joked that she preferred her patients asleep. Jane had a soft spot in her heart for animals, having horses, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, and fish as her companions at one time or another.
