"The Scenic Route: Adventures in the Life of a Traveling Nurse"

"Nurse Colleen isn't a woman-she's a nurse!"

With that simple statement, one of my campers summed it up perfectly. In a life full of change, nursing is the constant. Whether sleeping in a Mexican hospital, wrestling an inflatable alligator, dispensing prunes, or supporting parents as their child is taken off life support, the unforgettable moments in my life are found in nursing.

To me, nursing is a calling. It’s the job I was born to do and the role that defines me. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Scenic Route is the story of my life-long journey through nursing: the laughter, tears, joy, and pain that come with the choice to serve others. This book gives readers a glimpse behind the scenes of child psychiatry, developmental disabilities, pediatric critical care, camp nursing, and legal nurse consulting. Welcome to my world.

"Miles from Home"

What would you do for your best friend?

When Sean called, asking me to help him drive his parents from Wisconsin to Washington, I found out.

Sean's mother had Alzheimer's disease and his father was dying from lung cancer. We were taking them to their final home, an assisted living facility near Sean. And while his dad said he didn't want it to be an ambulance ride, it was clear this wasn't any vacation.

Sean and I had thirty years of history. He was my best friend, my first love…and, until very recently, the man I was living with. He was the man who wrote the words I'd carry in my heart my entire adult life, and the man who broke my heart.

Miles from Home is the true story of our cross-country trip, an end-of-life journey for one person and new beginnings for the rest of us. It is a story about life, death, friendship, and the choices we make. It is about the messiness of life, and, ultimately, the power of love.
