An Unorthodox Nursing Career

After graduating last year with my Master’s degree, I figured it was time for me to continue my quest to bring emergency management to the nursing masses. Advance for Nurses is a regional magazine that takes unsolicited article submissions. I figured the worse they could say is “no” and was surprised when they embraced the idea of a series of articles on emergency management from a nurse’s perspective. This article about emergency management preparedness in nursing was designed to set the tone for the series, explain my credentials, and show that I really am a nurse who engages in emergency management rather than an emergency manager who used to be a nurse.
