I'm Elaine. After some soul searching and doing an MSc, I switched gears and completed a BSc in Nursing and am working as an Emergency Nurse.
This blog started at the end of nursing school, and has followed my life ever since.
Any patient story depicted in this blog is not a real person, but a mixture of the many I see daily as a nurse.
