Pediatric Complex Care Nurse, Monty Anderson

Monty Anderson’s entire nursing career prepared him for where he was meant to be now: a Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Care nurse. His time with psychiatric patients gave him valuable insight into the complex emotions of our fellow humans, his pediatric nursing experience taught him the developmental stages of children and family-centered care. As a Charge nurse, he became competent in decision-making and prioritization and as a Quality Improvement nurse, he developed his research skills and honed his attention to detail. And now, he’s doing what he loves, using all of what nursing and life have taught him. In this interview, you’ll hear Monty get emotional when he talks about the unimaginable, the death of a child and you’ll discover what you can do right now to get into this fulfilling nursing specialty. In the five-minute snippet, “If I had a hammer, I’d hammer in the morning…" For Monty's bio and book recommendations, see the links below!
