Thanks for visiting Nurse Gold! As the founders of Nurse Gold, we thought we should introduce ourselves: meet Brianna Babienco and Marissa Salsbery!
At Nurse Gold, we focus on enriching the whole nurse. As both sisters and nurses, we founded Nurse Gold with the passion of educating nurses about different nursing issues in a wide range of settings, emphasizing in basic financial advice for nurses. Brianna has experience in labor and delivery, both as a floor nurse and clinical instructor. Marissa’s expertise is in med-surg and intermediate care, specializing in orthopedics, trauma, and general surgery. With our wide knowledge set, Nurse Gold strives to expand on the nursing experience in a variety of areas in nursing.
It’s been a whirlwind of learning as we have started this blog, but we are happy to have a platform to share our experiences and knowledge with you! With that said, let’s dive into who we are!
Nursing is in the BLOOD!
We come from a long lineage of nurses! We are just 2 of 12 nurses in our close family. Our grandmother, mother, mother-in-law, sister, sister-in-laws, aunts, and cousin are all nurses. If you wanted to include extended family, there’s even more of us!
We are Scuba Enthusiasts.
We were both scuba certified in the Puget Sound (sandwiched between Canada and Washington State). Though we have dove cold water, we prefer warm or tropical water dives. Some of the most beautiful places we have dove are Belize, Mexico, Hawaii, and Palau. On more than one occurrence, these land nurses have even encountered the ocean’s nurses… NURSE Sharks! It’s been great to meet with fellow nurses from all walks of life. 😀
Our Career Testing told us to Choose Different Career Paths!
Despite our career testing results, we both chose nursing (again, it’s in our blood)! According to the career testing, Brianna was supposed to be in business or marketing and Marissa a librarian or historian! Ironically, both of these different career predictions seem to be making a comeback, with Brianna specializing in the business and marketing side of our blog and Marissa primarily focusing on content and writing.
