Canton nurse follows family’s lead

CANTON, S.D. - Amanda Petrik is the Director of Nursing at Good Samaritan Society Canton. It’s a job she’s held for two years after working everywhere from cardiology and dialysis to the ER and ICU.

Petrik says watching her mom, who was an LPN, motivated her to become a nurse. “I remember her graduation when she got her RN, I was four years old. I remember her studying and I remember just the excitement she had and the humble person she is and she’s the best role model,” Petrik said.
