Here’s the backstory for all who don’t know me personally. I have been a nurse for almost 20 years since 2006. I have seen a lot in nursing, but Covid was something out of the twilight zone. It was truly a scary movie in person. I share on my blog about my life during, before and after Covid. At the present moment, I am travel nursing so you may never know I may show up near you.
I have a lot of hobbies, I Love to camp, fish, kayak, Paint, Sew, and quite a few other things I enjoy doing. I have four children, but they are all grown and living their own lives. I’m glad you have stop by to enjoy my stories. Stay for awhile you may or may not learn something. When you stop learning, you stop growing, when you stop growing you die. Never Stop Learning.
ALL NAMES PLACES, OR OTHER IDENTIFYING TRATS HAVE BEEN CHANGED IN THE STORIES ASSOCIATED WITH THATNURSEPATTY. COM TO PROTECT THE PATIENT’S OR FAMILIES INVOLVED. SOME STORIES HAVE BEEN ALTERED FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES.
Nursing isn’t easy and being a traveling nurse is even harder. Donations help me keep this blog going. Your generosity is appreciated!

My mother was a nurse for many years. She died in 2017 and didn’t live to see Covid or how everybody behaved. She would have been furious. She used to be an infection control nurse… You guys deserve medals for what you had to put up with. 2020 kinda turned my world upside down too, but it made things a little clearer for me, so there was an upside. I don’t like stumbling around in the dark. Better to see how things are, even if I don’t like them.
My mom also passed. Almost 2 years ago. I also don’t like stumbling around in the dark.
I’m waiting to hear about the travel nurse new job!!! Hope it’s going well!
I start in 2 days
