Thank you for visiting my website, Nursing Stories. Here, you’ll find references to the stories I have published about working in various health care settings, as a nurse and nurse practitioner, along with details about my book: Stories from the Tenth-Floor Clinic: A Nurse Practitioner Remembers.
On my Blog, I tell the stories of patients I cared for, special relationships nurses develop with patients and their families and how these differ from doctor/patient relationships. I discuss how nurses struggle to be heard in a hierarchy that so favors physicians. I spotlight other nurses, especially of a certain age, to tell their stories. Soon, my cohort and I will be gone and who will remember the “olden days of nursing?”
Interspersed with nursing issues, I highlight other topics that interest me: food, growing older, writing, food, confronting ageism, food, creativity, nostalgia, and, of course, food.
I hope you enjoy my site. Please leave a comment or suggestion or, best of all, share your own story.
