The Yellow "Sick" Road: A Nurse's Travels for 22 Years is about to hit the publishing world. It is filled with whimsical illustrations to help put a lighter spin on the dark story of bullying in the workplace.
The Yellow Sick Road explains my journey down a road that was sometimes crooked, sometimes bumpy, and sometimes pleasant. The Witches - East, West, North, and South - represent the charge nurses and management. The nurse’s aides are the Flying Monkeys. The Wizard of Oz is the CEO. The lion, scarecrow, and tin man have character qualities and desires that match my own. Emerald City is the hospital, and Dorothy’s home is like my home, sweet home whenever I returned from working as a travel nurse for past six years.
There’s no place like home!
I have not held back or exaggerated any of the facts and stories written here. I have also added some incidents from my personal life in order for you to understand my deep desire to be a nurse and where that path led me. I am proud to be a nurse.
