Qiana Spidle, RN

Qiana Spidle’s passion for helping others was evident early on. While in high school, she contemplated various healthcare roles, but her heart led her to nursing.

“I have always wanted to help people. In high school, I thought about physical therapy or nurse anesthetist but something about nursing and the hands-on care with patients just felt right,” she shared.

Spidle started in nursing when she was still a teenager. Her love for caring for others eventually brought her to Quincy Medical Group (QMG) in 2007 when she made the decision to finish her nursing degree.

“I started in long-term care at age 17 years old my last day of high school started working as a CNA while getting my LPN training,” Spidle shared. “I stopped nursing school when I was pregnant with my daughter and worked in nursing homes as a LPN for about 8 years.”

As her daughter grew more independent, Qiana resumed her nursing education, driven by an unyielding desire to make a difference. It was then that a friend encouraged her to explore opportunities at QMG. Uncertain of what to expect, she was pleasantly surprised to discover that QMG was willing to accommodate her school schedule.

“My journey at QMG started while going to RN school full time and floating to all departments,” she said. “I fell in love the hands-on care and the help I provided patients and the community.  I decided to stay at QMG after completing nursing school, I just never left.”

For Qiana, the driving force behind her unwavering dedication is simple yet profound: the knowledge that she makes a positive impact every day. Amidst the hustle and bustle, a thank you or a heartfelt smile from a patient serves as a powerful reminder of the difference she makes.

One of the aspects Qiana cherishes most about her time at QMG is the sense of unity. Here, it’s not just about individual contributions, but a collective effort towards patient well-being and community empowerment.

“I love how working here feels like we are a team not just for the patients but also you can better yourself and help the community,” she shared.
