Alumni Spotlight: Cindy Puente

Alumna Cindy Puente

Current or most recent title and employer?
LPN Charge Nurse Supervisor, Pomeroy Rochester Skilled Rehab in Rochester Hills

How did SC4 help prepare you?
I graduated from the Nursing Program in 1988.

What do you like most about what you do professionally?
LPNs work in medical environments such as hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and in-home care agencies to administer routine care, identify health problems and improve a patient’s quality of life through healthcare. LPNs work under direct supervision and record all patient interactions to develop thorough documentation about their care. They help prepare patients for procedures and assist with routine recovery care after initial treatment. LPNs usually work with several patients at once and administer care according to a schedule, upholding medical routines and procedures. It has been the most rewarding career I could have ever imagined. I feel blessed.

Did you transfer on and earn other degrees? If so, what degrees and from where?
I continued and took two continuing education classes in the geriatric field, which is where I specialized.
