Eric A. Aguirre, R.N.

Registered Nurse

Eric A. Aguirre, R.N.: I started up on a thoracic floor, and then I moved into the ICU. At that time, I felt like I needed to go back to school and get my master's. I was able to take advantage of the tuition reimbursement, and that was the majority of it.

I worked in the surgical trauma ICU for about six years. I was a nurse educator for two years. You can move in so many places but yet still keep your seniority within Mayo. There are just so many things. If you want an office job, you can get an office job. If you wanted to work at a clinic, you know, those opportunities are there. So working here at Mayo, for me, is a life-changing career.
