About me



I have been in the healthcare field since 1993 with several different job titles.  I have been a Registered Nurse since 1999,  working at two different hospitals and on several different units .

I have been married since 2000 and we have two beautiful children.  I wanted to start a blog so that I can share my experiences as a Registered Nurse.  It has been quite the venture and has never been a dull moment.  Every nurse has their own path, and we all have experiences that are only unique to us.

I choose the name, “The Enlightened Nurse,” because I feel like I have learned so much about other people as well as so much about myself since being in the healthcare field.  I have learned to never judge a book by its cover, you never know what today or tomorrow will bring, you cannot expect things to go your way, and to have patience for your patients, and be kind to yourself.  I do not claim to know all the answers about being a nurse, but I would like to share my experiences, no matter how good, bad or indifferent they may be.
