What I found very interesting about Congresswoman Diane Black is the wide variety of nursing fields that she worked in prior to becoming a Congresswoman. She began her nursing career as an ER nurse, worked as a long-term care nurse and on an outpatient surgery team (American Nurses Association, 2017). These roles and positions in and out of the hospital setting gave her needed experience and knowledge to be a competent Congresswoman. In one of the hospitals I worked at in Springfield, Illinois, the current CEO rose from the ranks of a nurse. He was very compassionate to the patients and extremely understanding of the staff since he had been a floor nurse in that hospital himself. He was very well respected and had earned that respect.
Our current Secretary of Education appointed under President Trump is Michigan billionaire Betsy DeVos. This nomination outraged many people because she had never held a position within public school systems. Her critics feel she wants to privatize the public education system and grow the charter and private schools (Strauss, 2017). I feel one reason Congresswoman Black is successful because her constituents can relate to her and she relates to them.
