In just one month, she swiftly transitioned to a clinical extern position where she found her calling in maternal and neonatal care.

Every day for Gurleen is different and filled with tender moments guiding new parents through the delivery and recovery process. From conducting head-to-toe assessments of mothers and babies, to assisting with feeding plans, ambulating patients after Caesarian sections, administering medications, attending deliveries and codes, and doing newborn blood work and critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) screenings, Gurleen does everything with a gentle and reassuring touch.
