In this podcast episode, From 0 to 6 Figure Nurse in Less Than a Year, we talk with Ashley Hay, who is a registered nurse and healthcare freelance writer. We will share her story and ask for some tips from her regarding healthcare freelance writing.

How Ashley starts her journey

Ashely started her freelance journey with the intent to increase her nursing income. With perseverance, her innate talent, and the creativity on how to use her knowledge, she has achieved this financially and then some! She walked through the path of six figures and conquers it with grace.

First and foremost, Ashely is an experienced Oncology nurse and her love for this profession is inspired by the professional yet friendly relationship between her father and his oncology nurse. From a young age, she was already interested in reading and writing although she thought it was not a realistic career to pursue.

In high school, she was diagnosed with Primary Immune Deficiency, and fast forward as she worked very long shifts, she started getting very ill. It became too difficult to be a bedside nurse that her husband told her to find another career that she can grow into. And out of necessity rather than desire, she fell into freelance writing.

At first, it is difficult for her because it is ingrained at nursing school that you should either work in a Doctor’s Clinic, Hospital, or Management. It was never taught that there was anything else. So, that’s why she was glad that she can still help people like patients and healthcare providers through her writing.

She realized an incredible life lesson that you are never too old to change it up.
