Surgical nurse, nurse

My name is Undine Kropp and I have been a registered nurse since 1993.

Born in Brandenburg and raised in Dresden, I went to Berlin after my training to work in a thoracic surgery ward. My pregnancy and the birth of my daughter in 1994 ended my brief stint as a ward nurse.

After a two-year maternity leave, it was more of a coincidence that I started as a surgical nurse in a central operating room in Leipzig. But as the saying goes, "Once an operation, always an operation". Working as a surgical nurse became a passion. The many different disciplines, the constant learning, the constant further development in medicine, make this work always exciting and varied.

I was employed in several clinics in Leipzig and Karlsruhe. From 2001 to 2003 I trained to become a surgical nurse in Karlsruhe and then decided to head back home. In Berlin, I started working in traumatology and orthopedics at the DRK Klinikum Westend. After four years it was time for something new and in 2007 I started at the German Heart Center Berlin.

I still work there part-time. Plastic surgery offers a wonderful balance to work in heart surgery. Since 2018 I have been employed as a surgical nurse at Park-Klinik Birkenwerder. I am directly present during the operation and assist the surgeons. When the patients see the result after the operation, a big smile spreads across their faces and tears of joy often flow, then that's the best thing for me.
