      Ryan's Answer

      "My desire to become a nurse stemmed from my passion for helping people when they are most vulnerable. As a successful nurse, at this point in my career, I got to where I am at today by providing the best customer service in the clinical environment by building great relationships with my patients. These relationships are created from the ground up. I start this by building trust in my patients with my clinical expertise and my interpersonal skills. I am an attentive listener and a compassionate caregiver. Once this trust is developed, my patients can fully trust me and recommend my services to future patients."

      Ryan's Answer

      "I am happy to hear that Kaiser Permanente values long-term relationships. This fact is a bonus for me, and it's one of the reasons I chose to work in the medical field. I like working in an industry where genuine care is valued. Healthcare is not a place for gimmicks because health is precious and irreplaceable. I've had a lot of success by focusing on building a reputation for consistency and follow-up. What you describe is a good fit for me, reputable vendors value these skills, and I'd like to represent a company that wants to create long-term sustainable partnerships."
