Why I’m a nurse

Generational care

I decided to work at Tri-County Health Care as I enjoy the small-town atmosphere. I am a native of Wadena, so it’s even more special because I’m taking care of the people I’ve known my entire life. With almost every patient I meet, there is a connection. I love to chat and calm the patient. Often people come into our facility feeling very nervous. Calming those nerves and reminding those patients of their value is important. Empowerment is a great tool I use every day. I cannot do the job I love without patients! They are a huge part of why I’m a nurse.

Tri-County Health Care is a fun, fast-paced clinic loaded with teamwork! You are never working alone, and there is always a staff member around to answer your questions. We are always smiling, even behind our masks. I work with multiple providers regularly. Each of them goes out of their way to make work a fun, efficient place.

Why I'm a nurse.

Amber Block, LPN

I started my nursing career in the hospital 15 years ago. The hospital taught me a lot, but I knew I wanted a day job. It took me about ten years to realize that I belonged at Tri-County. So here I am; I’ve been a nurse at the Wadena campus for almost four years. I couldn’t be happier! I always knew I belonged here.

Tri-County Health Care offers flexibility with scheduling and understanding when circumstances are out of your control. You also get to wear fun, bright-colored scrubs that patients love! I love picking out my outfit, knowing that I can turn a patient’s bad day into a good day with just my fun scrubs.

I’m proud to be part of the Tri-County Health Care team. Come join me; you won’t be disappointed!
