I chose Roswell Park because wanted to get the best patient bedside experience possible in the area. I had worked in other facilities where patient care was not a priority, and I hated the feeling of not being able to do everything possible for my patient. The positivity and the overall willingness of Roswell Park nurses to do everything for their patients has been a welcome surprise. THESE are REAL nurses!Aiyana Logan, AAS
