My name is Lois. I’ve been a Registered Nurse since 1967, and I work in a local clinic. Until the end of 1999 I worked part-time in a local hospital as well. I have two grown children, and two grandchildren.
My first website was On Patches and Bears. In the late 1990’s, I created a section on “On Patches and Bears” to support nurses and help us cope. Both were hosted on my ISP server, as was common with websites back then. When I was able to get my own website domain, the nurses’ site became care-nurse.com and later CareNurse.com. “On Patches and Bears” became a secondary site on the nurses’ site.
Since the, I’ve created several websites (see “websites by CareNurse*” below), and I’ve been involved in numerous other web activities. I’ve not kept things up well in the past couple of years, though, because of some health problems. My apology page shares more about that. I’ve been working through these things as I am able, and have just managed (August, 2005) to give CareNurse.com a much needed face lift.
We also want to express our appreciation to those who have to written us or use material from CareNurse in publications and presentations (in accordance with our copyright and guidelines at the bottom of the page.)
Welcome to CareNurse, enjoy your visit here, and blessings to all!
