Hello, nurses! My name is Karen Cicero and I am a reporter for Self magazine, a large national publication geared to 25- to 45-year-old women. For an upcoming issue, we're working on a story entitled "What Nurses Know." We're looking for specific tips from nurses that would impact a patient's care, wallet or sanity--in essence, we want the kind of stuff doctors won't divulge (or don't know about); the advice you'd tell your Mom or your sister before going to the doctor or the hospital.
If you can help out our readers who don't have a family member in the nursing profession, it would be great. You can e-mail me back some info or simply your phone number so we could chat. You would have the choice on whether you wanted your name to appear in the magazine. Thanks a bunch! --Karen Cicero
