Sydney Fischer, RN, a Registered Nurse with the University of Washington Medical Center

Get to know Registered Nurse, Sydney Fischer, who serves patients in Seattle, Washington. 

Sydney, a registered nurse, currently serves as a Floor Nurse at the University of Washington Medical Center on a high-risk delivery unit. 

She has made it her priority to continue increasing her skills in critical thinking, patient advocacy, and incorporating evidence-based practice into her work. She has also fallen in love with labor and delivery and the evolving practice changes that the speciality has to offer. 

The University of Washington Medical Center is a hospital in the University District of Seattle, Washington, United States. It is one of the teaching hospitals affiliated with the University of Washington School of Medicine, and is located in the Warren G. Magnuson Health Sciences Center.

In 2017, Sydney attended Elmira College and earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. She chose a school for its hockey program and fell in love with the nursing program. After graduation, she took a position at a hospital upstate. From there, she took her NCLEX and completed the licensing process for New York State and started the process of transferring it to CARNA. 

With the decision to travel back to Canada, she found a full time position at a rural facility and was blessed that her manager was an advocate for her. Since January 2018, she has been working on the acute floor, which allows her to practice her license at full scope and always continue to grow as a registered nurse in a medical-surgical based setting. She decided to join the MoreOB team to continue learning new protocols and ensure her staff is up to date in practice. 

A Registered Nurse (RN) is a nurse who has graduated from a nursing program and met the requirements outlined by a country, state, province or similar licensing body to obtain a nursing license. RNs fulfill a variety of job duties. In addition to their primary role in treating and caring for patients, their responsibilities also include educating patients and the public about a variety of medical conditions, as well as providing emotional support, coordinating care  and advice to the families of their patients. Other RN job functions include leadership, research, performing diagnostic tests and analyzing results, operating medical equipment, administering medications, recording patients’ symptoms and medical histories, and assisting with patient rehabilitation and follow-up.

On a more personal note, Sydney attributes her success to her family, who raised her to be hard-working. She believes one needs to work hard in order to perform a job effectively. 

When she is not working, she enjoys spending her free time playing hockey, volleyball, and softball, as well as hiking, running, working with horses, farming, and being with her family. 

“I love being at home surrounded by my big, crazy family. Working on the farm on my days off is something I am passionate about as it is part of my family’s legacy and who I am. I occasionally continue to play hockey, no longer at a competitive level. But I volunteer and coach girls in the sport when I am able to. I also coach the Highschool Volleyball Team for our town. I am so proud of the girls I am able to mentor” expressed Sydney. 

Her favorite movies are Gone with the Wind, Gun Smoke, and Pride and Prejudice. Her favorite type of music is country, being the obvious choice since she grew up on a farm in the middle of nowhere. 

When asked who she would like to meet, she answered Ellen Degeneres. “I believe she is one of the most amazing people God has put on this planet. Her shows literally always make me cry because she is so, so kind. If everyone followed her lead and did small acts of kindness, the world would be a better place.”
