30 Years in Nursing: What Have I Learned About the Art?
2012 Honored Alumna Lezli Matthews says that being a nurse is “being all about the patient.” From all accounts, that is precisely what Matthews is.
After earning her associates degree from Brigham Young University and her bachelors from the University of Phoenix, Matthews became a Nurse Manager of the Intermountain Burn Center. Currently she works at the University of Utah Burn Center as a Nurse Manager and is involved with several committees and organizations related to burn care, including the American Burn Association and the National Faculty for the Advance Burn Life Support Program.
She states “I am deeply moved by the human body’s ability to heal with the right treatments and care. I am even more incredibly moved by the strength of spirit and the growth that comes from tragedy and challenges. Just like the phoenix from the flames, these survivors are heroes to me. I am reminded on a daily basis how small or insignificant my worries can be in life’s bigger picture.”
In September 2012, Matthews celebrated 30 years of service to University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics.
