When I started PPP, I had just returned from a trip to the Netherlands, and I was seeking change, something that would give me the freedom to travel. My friends and family live in Canada and Europe, and I am always sad that so much time has been lost.

I have been nursing for over 25 years and now work remotely as a utilization management nurse. I knew I enjoyed working from home, but I wanted to explore something more fulfilling, and above all, I wanted freedom. I began to google jobs that would allow me to travel once my kids were grown.

I had no idea freelance writing as a nurse was even a thing until September. I found Savvy Nurse Writer in my search and signed up for an information session to check it out. I have always loved to write; I almost left my BSN nursing program to change to journalism. I thought this could not be true.

I was sold that night. Listening to you explain the possibilities and relating it to nursing just clicked. I dove into the course immediately. Between returning home to signing up for PPP was about 10 or 12 days.

I am married and have three children, but two are in college, and my youngest is 14 years old. I have more free time now than I have had in the last 20 years. I no longer work shift work, so my schedule was better, and the timing was perfect.
