Welcome to my blog! A look into to world of critical care from a nurse's perspective. Life is not always censored, filled with rainbows and unicorns or pretty and some of my posts won't be either. I aim to provide a no-bull look into what we healthcare professionals on the front line deal with on a daily basis.
