Success Stories

Verenisse Villanueva, RN

Verenisse Villanueva​My name is Verenisse Villanueva. I have been working in healthcare for the past 16 years. I received my Nursing degree in Mexicali, Mexico, from the Universidad Autónoma de Baja, California (UABC). Immediately after that, I started working for El Centro Regional Medical Center (ECRMC) as an Emergency Department Aid for one year, then I challenged the boards to be a Register Nurse in the United States, and fortunately, I passed NCLEX. I have been a Nurse at ECRMC for 14 years. I have held different roles at the Emergency department such as Charge Nurse, MICN, Triage, Bedside Nurse, and preceptor.

Also, I had the opportunity to work in the ECRMC Oncology department.

My current position since 2018 is with PRIME department. My role in this department is a Triage RN at the Call Center. In this new nursing role, I have direct communication with patients, providers, insurances, hospitals here and outside of the Imperial Valley.

I am currently studying a master's degree in nursing education at Western Governors University.

I love to be a nurse. I am very proud to have studied in the Universidad Autónoma de Baja, California, and to be part of the ECRMC family.
