Nurses aren’t limited to only working at the bedside. I spoke with my new friend and Best Selling Author, Carol Gino on the phone yesterday and just as I’ve been whenever I read her writings, I was quite inspired to say the least by her wisdom, wit and experiences she shared with me.
Take a moment to read this brief bio and check out her web sites. She’s an amazing nurse, author, entrepreneur and woman!
Thank you Carol Gino!
