About Me

My name is Cory. I am a mom, a wife, a NaNa, and a critical care nurse that lives in Nashville, TN. I have found my calling in ER/Trauma/ICU. Each day I find myself experiencing life changing events and hope that by reading my posts, you will experience and feel some of what I do. If you read nothing else, please take time to read "The Hardest Question Ever Asked". It's my very first posting. And if for some reason you think you see your story don't. It's not about you or anyone you know. =)

A Note About Me

Although I have many stories to share I've been contemplating long and hard about how to start this and figure a brief introduction about me will suffice. I am a single mother with two great kids, a 14 year old daughter and a 19 year old son, both still at home and both kids that make a mother very proud . I have the most wonderful life partner who makes my world complete. He, along with the two kids, two dogs and two cats of course. (We have a Blue Heeler and a Solid White Boxer, the two cats are of the somewhat rare "attitudinal" breed.) With a background in accounting, I ventured into nursing school as a 29 year old mother with two small children. I began with dreams of doing what I had told my father at 6 years old that I would do one day as I was "nursing" him after we had a motorcycle crash. I have been a nurse since 1999 and have been so blessed to have found my calling as a Trauma/ER nurse. I have worked at several different hospitals and was lucky enough to have been a charge nurse as well as a staff nurse in one of the largest Level I Trauma Units in the country for 4 years. I also worked in the Level IV NICU for a year which changed my life. I have had many experiences, good and bad and hope that by sharing my stories, someone else might feel some of what I feel every day .........

Yeah Precious, We got it closer to how you wanted it.
Welcome to the nursing blogosphere.. Hope to pop back in from time to time around homework.. Cheers from Nurse Practitioner News and The Nurse Practitioner's Place

I am 25 years old and work as an accountant. It is not a fulfilling job for and I am not satisified either personally or professionally. I have wanted to be a nurse since I used to spend many hours in the hospital visiting a sick grandparent. I was always inspired by the care and knowledge those nurses had. I have recently been thinking of taking a leap into the field of nursing. Your story is inspiring and I hope that if I choose to pursue nursing, I will be as passionate about it as you are. Thank you!
