My role in the organization was blog editor and social media manager. Selected blogs:

Begging For Change

A Donkey on Tilt

Point Blank

Social Justice Is Everyone’s Business


A DNP's primary function is translational; we are meant to interpret nursing evidence and determine how to implement it effectively. That means assessing healthcare systems, how they need to evolve, and how to do it. A DNP is also a clinical degree; we have full prescriptive authority and autonomy within our scope of practice in Washington. My specialty is psychiatry. I am interested in the intersection of mental health and chronic illness, and changing how people perceive death and the end of their lives. I feel passionate about addressing racism and social injustice in the healthcare system and advocating to ameliorate the underlying issues that support continued disparities. I want to address how systemic disenfranchisement generates and reinforces those conditions. This means policy advocacy and a willingness to influence both the voting public and legislative bodies on issues pertaining to scientific and medical literacy and how they manifest in our legal system.

Watch for future work. I am currently working on a nonfiction book, which is meant to be a handbook or tool useful for helping people with depression and anxiety. I'm currently consulting on a pilot program to test the NRP in LTC project, and expect to publish and present the results. Future goals include making a TED Talk about nursing.

Et cetera

To paraphrase Clifford Thurlow, a writer is someone who writes every day. Not everything I have written is strictly related to nursing or public health.
