Alex Falco, Student Nurse

As the mother to two amazing young men, Alex makes being a nursing student and mother look easy and she does it with flawless style! Before deciding to pursue the field of nursing, Alex attended cosmetology school and obtained her cosmetology license in 2009, so she is also still a hairstylist/makeup artist in Vegas when not immersed in medicine or spending time with her beautiful family. Alex is also a member of the #allheartsquad.

What is your favorite thing about your job?

I love my job!! I love working with the kiddos, I love the department and hospital I am at, and lastly, I love my co-workers and how we all work together as a team to provide the best care we possibly can. The biggest challenge is completing school with two young children and still running a full hair business, while working at the hospital as well. Juggling all of my priorities is very hard, but also, sooo worth it! 

What is the most important thing to know about your specialty?

Kids are by far the most resilient patients to care for. It is an honor to work with the little humans of Las Vegas, they're just my favorite!!! 

What does professional style mean to you?

Showing professionalism in the workplace is an absolute MUST. I don't want to show up to work in frumpy scrubs, wearing scrubs that make you feel good on the outside definitely helps get you through those difficult days and gives you that "I can take on anything" mindset before starting your 12+ hour shift.
