I have been a nurse for almost 24 years now, and though I have worked in many areas of nursing including Hospice and Medical/Surgical units, my area of expertise is in critical care. In addition to being a nurse, I am a paramedic, and have spent most of my career in the emergency department and air ambulance – both rotor-wing and fixed-wing.
