Throughout his years in nursing, he trained student nurses CC rotation at Kindred Hospital, as well as trained student nurses from Cedarville on the Trauma Stepdown Unit.

When Michael was in high school and unsure of his future career choice, he took an aptitude test which showed a 97% likelihood that he should go into and would succeed in the medical field. It was not wrong either because now he cannot see himself doing anything else. The reason he chose nursing over other healthcare careers is the hands-on work and time spent caring and helping patients, as well as the multitude of directions he can go with his nursing career.

To advance his professional efforts, he holds certificates in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Basic Life Support (BLS – not intended for postnominal use). Among his various achievements, he was nominated for a DAISY Award and recognized as Novice of the Year at Kindred Hospital.
