Nancy Crane found her calling caring for others

For Nancy Crane, it all started with a job as a nurse’s aid.

“I found that I had a passion for caring for others and I wanted to increase the type of care that I could provide, so becoming a nurse was the next step,” said Nancy.

Forty-three years later—the past 22 of which has been spent at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor—Nancy is still doing what she loves. She attributes her professional longevity to her unique ability to change with the times.

“As my career has progressed, I've seen many changes and I have learned to adapt and go with the changes,” said Nancy. “Unfortunately, some of the changes are not as easy to adapt to as others.”

Nancy’s advice for others looking to start a career in nursing is to make sure you’re doing it for all of the right reasons.

“Be dedicated to the profession and for those that you care for,” said Nancy. “You should have a passion for it instead of doing it just for money.”

And, having been a part of the Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor staff for more than two decades, Nancy believes the community is the perfect place for anyone looking to either downsize or gain a little extra assistance as they age.

“Moving into a senior living community can be a tough decision, but if someone has a change of life that requires them to move into a safe and secure environment, Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor is a great choice. We have a great staff and wonderful residents to be with you on your new journey,” said Nancy.
