This month, we&rsquo;re shining our Nurse Spotlight on Kevin Adams, BSN, RN, a lifelong Buckeye who partners with patients in our ICU. What I do at The James My job mostly consists of passing medications, collaborating with physicians and taking care of patients &mdash; hearing their concerns, hearing what they need and really being there for them. I have a great team and allocate different tasks, so when I can&rsquo;t be in the room, we make sure that we meet our goal of great patient care. Building leadership through teamwork I started in the ICU as a new nurse, and everyone in my unit has been a part of my learning and development. Now, as I&rsquo;m developing into more of a leader, it&rsquo;s amazing to be able to be there for my team and help everyone else through their transitions, whether they&rsquo;re a new nurse or just new to The James. We&rsquo;re very focused on making sure everyone is providing the best care we possibly can. An &ldquo;incredible&rdquo; opportunity Working at the James is incredible. There have been wonderful staffing ratios, incredible technology &mdash;&nbsp;pretty much everything I could have asked for in my profession. We have a whole interdisciplinary team &mdash; pharmacists, respiratory therapists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, case managers and social workers. We&rsquo;re all together, and we talk about patients&rsquo; plans of care &mdash; everyone contributes something. The benefits of a Comprehensive Cancer Center Working at a Comprehensive Cancer Center is really interesting because you get to be a part of important research. I get to administer new therapies and give clinical trial treatments. It&rsquo;s really cool to see how these new treatments work and wonderful to see patients do so well. O-H&hellip; I was born and raised in Columbus. I loved this city, as I grew up in Clintonville &mdash; it was the most amazing community. I always felt like I was part of something, and that transferred over to Ohio State. The second I toured the campus, I thought, &lsquo;I have to go here.&rsquo; Then, working in the hospital as a student made me want to stay. This is home. The best part of the job I&rsquo;m a hard worker and I like to process emotion, so I thought nursing was a perfect summation of all the things I was looking for. I feel so lucky to provide care to the patients at The James. I get to help them through their hardest times and I get to celebrate their successes &mdash; really just be there for them. I think there&rsquo;s something really beautiful about that.
