Edina Minneapolis and the West Metro

Meet Dianna Kuck, LPN

I'm Dianna Kuck, mother of three, grandmother of one, and a licensed practical nurse. I am the staff nurse for Homewatch CareGivers of Edina, Minnesota. Originally from northern Minnesota, I have lived in Burnsville for the past 20+ years. After helping raise our kids, I found myself with time on my hands and needing to change careers. As part of my effort to gain entrance into a nursing program, I was required to join the state registry of certified nursing assistants. I began working as a CNA afterward and was lucky enough to be placed with a couple where every thing just clicked. I attended nursing school while providing care for them and their support has been a rock.

I found Homewatch Caregivers of Edina and since 2017 I have worked here as an LPN. Under the supervision, and with the aid of Ali Soderman, RN Case Manager, I  provide care, set-up medications, re-assess client conditions, maintain documentation, and train caregivers; while also providing another set of eyes on our clients and as another route of communication for both clients and caregivers. 

A good nurse requires one be a lifelong learner; that is my favorite thing about this job. The constant opportunity to learn and to grow in every direction is only limited by my energy and by the number of hours in the day. The nature of this work also allows for the care of a variety of people in a multitude of situations, growing my experiences and knowledge base rapidly... and being helpful again feels pretty great too.

I admit to a thrift store preoccupation, being a summer sale treasure hunter, and that I always have a few crazy quilts at some odd stage of semi-completion in my home.
