Thank you for taking the time to get to know me through my portfolio.
My name is Belinda Mikaelian and I am a Clinical Nurse Specialist at the John Hunter Hospital in Hunter New England Local Health District.
I work full time across three assignments- the Acute Pain Service (inpatients), Hunter Integrated Pain Service (outpatients) and F3 (Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery). I am currently seconded away from F3 and into Hunter Integrated Pain Service, leaving me working full time in Pain Management for 12 months.
I have recently completed my Masters of Nursing at Charles Sturt University with a distinction and have found the whole process very rewarding.
I am passionate about nursing, eliminating bullying from the nursing culture, holistic health care, pain management, research and improving health services.
Outside of the hospital walls I am a Zumba Instructor and volunteer as a run director for Parkrun. I believe in community, connections and people.
