Danielle Mayhew, RN, BSN, CVRN-BC, is a full-time staff nurse in the emergency department (ED) at Huntington Hospital, facing a fast-paced environment for which she feels both supported and inspired by her managers and team members to succeed. What Danielle loves most about working as a registered nurse (RN) in the ED at Northwell, is that every day is different, and she gets to see a little bit of everything due to the range of ailments we see and treat at Northwell. She takes care of emergency patients with broken bones and abdominal pains to car accident victims and those who are critically ill.
When Danielle started her career with us in 2018 as a throughout nurse taking care of admitted patients, it was her training, that helped prepare her for her current position in the ED. During that time, she was able to get great experience with medical, surgical and telemetry patients while being in the emergency room setting.
After realizing she had a passion for emergency medicine, Danielle transitioned to an emergency department RN role in 2021. “Northwell has supported my growth by allowing me a smooth transition from throughput RN to ED RN. Throughout my career here, Northwell has provided me with multiple advancement opportunities, including learning the triage process, becoming a charge nurse and preceptor.”
Danielle’s current role frequently places her in triage areas, including walk-in and EMS triage. She also enjoys teaching and sharing her knowledge with new nurses. Danielle emphasized, “The main thing that attracted me to Northwell and keeps me here is the culture around patient-centered care, as well as team member wellness.”
