The Catalyst

Meet Tiffany Mullins, R.N.

Department
Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

How you are changing what's possible at MUSC
By being a part of my unit, which has reduced the CLABSI (central line-associated bloodstream infections) rate to zero during three years after implementing a CLABSI bundle

What made you choose nursing
Growing up with and watching my mom, who is the most giving and caring nurse

Words of advice for a new nurse
Try not to get discouraged. It takes a while to get into your own style. In the meantime, you can learn something special from every nurse you encounter.

What is your idea of a dream job
Working for a boss who supports, believes and trusts in you.

Greatest moment in your life
I have had so many great moments — taking a nursing class in Ireland and traveling to Europe, graduating from nursing school, meeting families and patients who have forever changed me, moving to Chicago, then Charleston, getting a job in PICU, seeing my patients walk back into the unit, and marrying my husband.
