Krystelle Pring, BSN, RN, OCN, has been appointed to join the Nursing Board at the American Health Council. She has spent the first two-and-a-half years of her career as a Staff Nurse caring for newly diagnosed cancer patients, patients going through chemotherapy and radiation, and hospice and end-of-life patients at New York Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center. Her hospital has the reputation of being the nation’s most comprehensive health care delivery system, dedicated to providing the highest quality care and service to patients in the New York metropolitan area. She also works at Columbia University’s Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center as a Clinical Research Nurse managing the direct care of patients enrolled in clinical trials. Krystelle is a perfect example of talent within the Nursing branch of the healthcare industry. She has brought four years of expertise in Adult Oncology, Patient Care, and Nursing to the healthcare industry.
Krystelle began her education at Rutgers University, where she enrolled in the Nursing program, claiming an emphasis in Oncology. She succeeded in her pursuit of her Bachelors of Science in Nursing and went on to begin her career in 2014. Krystelle considers her education to be her most valuable asset, and its completion was a dream come true. Her inspiration to pursue a career in nursing stemmed from her mother, who was a nurse for 20 years. Krystelle saw the passion her mother had for nursing and the diversity it presented and soon developed the same love for nursing her mother had. She challenges herself every day to become a better person for her patients in order to bring about the best outcomes.
According to Krystelle, the passion she has for her work only contributes to the success she has gained during her career. She is thankful for the strong support system made up of her friends and family. She claims that they help keep her on track and motivate her to push forward in her ambitions.
When she is not tending to patients, Krystelle enjoys taking time out to rejuvenate by going for walks, running, biking, reading, and playing the piano and organ. She is currently a graduate student at the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University and the Associate Organist for the St. John the Apostle Church in Linden, New Jersey.
