Shannon Brightman is a Registered Nurse and the Clinical Administrator at KWC Tucson. She is on track to finish her BSN and plans to continue her education to receive her MSN for an FNP degree. Shannon began her career in healthcare in 2001 as a nursing assistant and worked her way through LPN and RN. The last 10 years were spent in an Adult medical ICU where she earned her CCRN (Critical care registered nurse) and cardiovascular ICU for 1 year. She believes compassion, care, and hope are the values that make KWC such a special place. Shannon is passionate about providing hope and help to patients throughout their wellness journey. She often hears patients say “this is their last hope” before their first treatment and enjoys seeing the patient transformation process as they return to “themselves” and realize why our care team doesn’t give up hope. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She likes to travel and has many more places on the list.
