Ayla Flickinger used the opportunities available at IRSC to launch her nursing career, step-by-step. The 2009 Martin County High School graduate holds four degrees from IRSC: a Medical Assisting Certificate, 2011; AA Degree, 2012; Associate Degree in Nursing, 2014, and Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing, 2016.

Her clinical experiences along the way helped her develop increasingly advanced knowledge and skills. “The experience and clinical opportunities available at IRSC are fundamental to developing competent future nurses,” she said.

Dedicated and hard-working, she worked throughout her college years, first as a Medical Assistant and MOHS Technician with Connelly Skin Cancer Center. After her first semester in the Associate Degree in Nursing program, she was hired at Martin Health Systems as a Patient Care Technician and continued working throughout the nursing program. She is now employed as a registered nurse in the Emergency Department.

“I love caring for critically ill patients and their families in their time of need. I feel honored with the trust my patients place in me to care for them at their most vulnerable time," Flickinger said. “I also was attracted to the career because of the stability and ability to move anywhere and still be employable.”
