Brittany Wilkerson, RN
Miss Wilkerson graduated nursing school as an RN in May 2011. Worked as a patient care tech and Nurse Intern prior to working as an RN in at Medical Center Enterprise. I caught the travel bug and practiced nursing in Pyeongtaek, South Korea. I managed a team of family and pediatric practioners and their nursing staff. It was there I learned that I had a passion for pediatrics. After leaving Korea, I worked as an RN in Fairbanks, Alaska. There I focused on family medicine, and worked with specialties such as functional medicine and osteopathic medicine. After leaving Alaska I returned home to Alabama and returned to pediatric nursing, specifically in the feild of psychiatry. I worked and still currently work with Pathway, Inc as a team RN. After spending several years working with this patient population, I now know that I would like to continue to further my nursing education. I am a self proclaimed "work-a-holic", but during my time off I love to travel and spend time with my family and son.
