DeeAndra Sandgren, from florist to Good Samaritan Society VP

BROOKINGS, S.D. – “I’ve met all sorts of different people, so I can relate to all types of people,” said Good Samaritan Society vice president of nursing DeeAndra Sandgren, who has spent her entire nursing career with the Good Samaritan Society.

“A good day in the office is when I’m not in the office. I love to solicit feedback at our facilities and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our frontline staff,” the 2012 SDSU graduate said. There are five Good Samaritan facilities in Sioux Falls and 22 in South Dakota, where Good Samaritan Society has been headquartered since 1963.

In geriatric nursing, “We get to do a little bit of everything. Helping patients find what they think is their best quality of life is very rewarding. I really think I have the best job in the world. I get to empower people do more than they ever thought they could,” Sandgren said.
