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
