|Bethany Lein, a Labor and Delivery Nurse at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare – St. Francis, couldn’t imagine working anywhere else. She began her career in 2003 as a Patient Care Assistant through a co-op program between her high school and St. Francis. She worked her way up to become a nurse intern, and in 2008, became a labor and delivery nurse.
“I really like the community aspect of the hospital. Everyone is friendly. Every time I’ve had a need arise, it has been addressed in a timely, professional manner. I like that I was able to develop as a nurse. All of my educational goals were supported by my manager and my peers.”
