About me

Hi, I’m Catherine (Cathy) Hutchison, R.N., owner and operator of youRNurse consulting. I started my business to help the Adult Foster/Care Home community provide high quality care.  I accomplish this  by assisting the providers with nurse consulting and education required to ensure licensing.  I have to admit that I want to make sure that there will be quality places, when I need to move into one. I have found that most Adult Foster/Care Home providers get into the business to help people, not for the record keeping.  That can be a frustrating challenge for you.

I am here to assist you!

My medical career began as a CNA in a large Tulsa, Oklahoma hospital.  I then, moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where I furthered my career, training and working as a Certified  Emergency Paramedic for an ambulance company.   In 1986, my family and l moved to Portland. I attended a local Nursing progam, and became a Registered Nurse in1989.  Most of my nursing career was spent working as a Home Health Nurse (starting in 1990)  My present venture is my business, youRNurse consulting, which I opened in 2008.  Along with bettering the Adult Foster Home community, I wanted a more flexible schedule, so I could spend more time with my family, especially my grandchildren.

I have a certificate in Gerontology from Clark College.  I am presently providing nurse consultation services for Adult Foster/Care Homes in the Portland Metro area.  I am an American Heart Association CPR/AED & First Aid instructor, and I  instruct Ensuring Quality Care, (ie Adult Care Basic Training,) through  Portland and Mount Hood Community Colleges. I teach the Ventilator Assisted Care Home Program Skills and Competency course.

I look forward to serving you in anyway I can.  No question is unimportant! Contact me
