Welcome to my website. You’ll find stories that focus on patients I’ve cared for over the 40 years I was a nurse. My book: Stories from the Tenth-Floor Clinic: A Nurse Practitioner Remembers has launched me into an award-winning author in my retirement years.
My blog’s scope has shifted from the intense documentation of nursing practice when I first posted in December 2011 to a more global picture of public health care. I’ll be continuing to seek out stories about other nurses, especially those of a certain age. Soon, my cohorts and I will be gone and who will remember the “olden days of nursing”?
Interspersed with nursing issues, I will be highlighting other subjects that interest me such as, writing, growing older, art, and food.
I hope you enjoy my website. Please leave a comment or suggestion or, best of all, share your own story.
