Angela McMillan, RN, CCRN
Hello, Readers. My name is Angela McMillan. I am just a regular everyday American that decided to start a blog for a couple reasons. First, let me tell you a little bit about me. I am (soon-to-be) divorced, Mother and (soon-to-be) first time Grandmother, Registered nurse 16 years, Chicago native. There are more things about me in my post “Dear America”.
I spent my entire Nursing career in Critical Care, Trauma Nursing, and three of those years as Civilian Trauma Flight Nurse. I am also Certified in Critical Care by the AACN. I thought It would be interesting to have a bit of a mash-up blog by combining my medical knowledge and expertise in my field and also talk about politics of which I have a renewed extreme interest. Growing up I spent a lot of time with my parents in the political community. They were highly involved political campaigns, community rallies, canvassing and more. I had long since lost interest in politics until our most recent election.
Here’s the kicker; My parents were die-hard democrats. And I know my Mexican-American Step-Dad is rolling over in his grave (RIP) but, I have chosen the republican path and am an ardent Trump Supporter. I am a level-headed, open-minded, pragmatic and reasonable conservative. I am passionate about many things, but most of all, Truth and Justice. Maybe it’s the Libra in me.
My intentions for this blog are developing daily. I want to have free and open dialogue. Post articles that I’ve written, to give a different perspective than the mainstream news that has been Spun so much, you can’t tell which way is up. I intent to hold those same outlets accountable when they choose to report only parts of a story that merely advances their agenda and leaves out facts that are pertinent and necessary, in order to present a fair and balanced article. IN other words, I will UN-Spin the spun news.
And let’s not let my Nursing knowledge go to waste. I may periodically write about health related issues, Political healthcare issues, anecdotes, and i am also open to answering questions from the readers.
TO answer the question how will I find the time for this if I am a health professional? 3 years ago, I was given the diagnosis of Idiopathic Primary Pulmonary Artery Hypertension, resulting in not being able to work. I would like to raise awareness about this rare incurable disease and also have something worthwhile with which to fill my time.
Thanks for coming by and checking out my work in progress.
