May 20, 2021
Brenda Prentiss is an LVN with over seven years of experience. She started her medical career as a CNA/unit secretary and quickly learned she was meant to do nursing. Her background includes family medicine, internal medicine, UC, physical therapy, and most recently chronic care management. She resides in Royse City, Texas with her fiancé and his 17-year-old sister. In her spare time Brenda loves woodworking and other crafts. She is excited to be a part of Siren and looks forward to helping as many patients as possible!
"One of my patients was suffering unbearable pain. I helped get her doctor's appointment rescheduled a week earlier by sending the provider pictures and a detailed description of the patient's symptoms. Her gratitude embodies why I love this job!"
One of Brenda's inspirations for becoming a nurse was Jane Delano, an early pioneer of the profession who founded the American Red Cross Nursing Service in the early 1900s. Brenda's favorite quote of Delano's is, "Nursing is not alone caring for the sick, the prevention of infection often constitutes as important a duty as the actual care of the patient. A woman who is without knowledge of the principles which should guide the performance of her work holds in her hands a capacity for doing infinite harm; she cannot avoid dangers in which she does not recognize."
