Codi Adams’ Compassionate Calling Becomes a Career in Cancer and Hematology

Codi Adams was first introduced to Texas Children’s Hospital as a little girl accompanying her sister to appointments for her Spina Bifida. The compassion her family was shown while at Texas Children’s inspired Codi to become a nurse.

“I had multiple family members who had or were battling cancer at that time,” said Codi. “I wanted to learn everything I could about cancer, so when I saw open positions in the Cancer and Hematology Center at Texas Children’s, it felt like fate.”

Codi found her purpose in the Cancer and Hematology Center and encourages more nurses to choose this special department.

What do you love most about working at Texas Children’s?

I love how at Texas Children’s we are a vast network of people, working together for the common goal of helping others. We are a family. I feel like I have a voice and am heard. Not to mention, the opportunities for growth and enhancement are limitless. This is a place you can find your purpose.

What has been your proudest achievement while at Texas Children’s?

I still have a few things on my list, but one achievement that stands out is recently winning the Shamrock Award for going above and beyond to ensure a patient’s safety. Just knowing that I did what was right and necessary and was acknowledged for it made it that much sweeter.

Why should someone work in the Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Center?

This unit is a special place. Our patients and families are fighters, and it inspires you to fight with them. Working here gives you the opportunity to wear many hats and push yourself to greater heights. For example, this work has made me a better leader and team player. This unit gives you the courage, thrills and job satisfaction you may be seeking, all while becoming an extended member of the families we care for daily.

What advice would you give a new nurse starting in the Cancer and Hematology Center?

Take it easy. This isn’t something you will pick up in a day. Give yourself some grace and never be afraid to ask questions. Asking each other questions is how we all have learned so much and continue to lead our families tirelessly towards a positive resolution.

Codi’s goal moving forward is to be an example to her team members and a leader that is dependable and trustworthy, embodying all the experience and compassion she has learned while working in the Cancer and Hematology Center.
