Meet Fabian Rodriguez

Broward Health Medical Center CVICU nurse Fabian Rodriguez is proud to serve patients as a registered nurse at Broward Health Medical Center. Meet Fabian:

What is your name and title?
Fabian Rodriguez, RN, BSN, CCRN

How long have you worked at CDTC?
4 and a half years

What motivates you to come to work each day?
Each day brings a new opportunity to influence change, this motivates my practice as a Nurse and keeps me with a positive outlook on things.

Please share your favorite Broward Health moment so far:
One of my favorite moments this year was the celebration for Nurses Week last May. The celebration made me feel very valued and appreciated by my peers.

What advice would you give to a new employee just starting their career in healthcare?
Respect is high on my value set. I would tell new employees to treat others how you would want to be treated.

How do you like to relax?
Connecting with nature is such a good way to relax.. A nice quiet walk in the neighborhood or the beach helps bring me back to baseline.

What are you most proud of personally or professionally?
One of my professional achievements I’m proud of is becoming a nurse, I do not see myself in any other career.. Personally, this year I went on my first mission trip to Ecuador and that experience had a huge impact on me. It was very humbling and rewarding at the same time.

What is on your music playlist?
This week music by Billy Idol, Stevie Nicks, J-Balvin, Bad Bunny and Celia Cruz were on the top played.

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. They were an eccentric and controversial Mexican duo of the early 20thcentury that had a Beauty and the Beast dynamic. They were artists that created some of Mexico’s most fascinating art that speaks to politics, history and their personal story. I find them very intriguing.
