When a patient is air transported to a hospital, Kinsey Cutchall, ‘13, is there to provide the urgent care they need during the flight. Flight nurses like Kinsey are highly trained to provide life-saving medical services to all her patients. They are there to assist patients during pre-flight and during transport, helping to ease pain and treat conditions on the way to the hospital.
Even before she graduated from Mount Aloysius with her associate’s degree, Kinsey had accepted a nursing position at Chambersburg Hospital.
“Mount Aloysius helped me tremendously by preparing me for real-life nursing,” Kinsey said. “And being known as one of the best schools for nursing, I know I was able to receive the best education for my job.”
While working at Chambersburg Hospital, Kinsey was able to continue her studies online, earning her bachelor’s degree, which helped her achieve her dream career of being a flight nurse. In 2018, she accepted a position at Air Methods in Hagerstown, Maryland at LifeNet 8-1 base.
“I owe all my beginning success to the Mount for such an amazing nursing program they hold.” She added: “Through that, I believe I was able to succeed quickly and earn my dream job of being a flight nurse.”
Kinsey currently holds nursing certifications of PHRN (pre-hospital RN), CEN (certified emergency nurse), and CFRN (certified flight RN).
“The Mount is a highly credited school and I recommend anyone I talk to that is interested to get their education from there.”
