For more information or to RSVP, call 508-949-6232 or email Ann lived in Worcester for a few years and was employed by UMass/Memorial at the University campus. The book starts with a few stories about her nursing training and employment at UMass.

About the book: Did you ever wonder what happens in an ICU at night? Is being a nurse in a hospital like what you see on TV or on the internet?

Besides taking excellent care of their patients, nurses enjoyed humor at work before the Covid pandemic. Playing jokes on each other or finding hilarity in absurd situations, we devised ways to amuse ourselves while performing our duties.
Glimpse into the medical career of someone who dares to say life as a nurse used to be fun. Follow my journey from being a student nurse to a critical care RN with 30 years of experience.

Relive with me both the frustrations and camaraderie that I encountered as an RN. Filled with true tales from my life both in and out of the hospital, “When Being a Nurse Was Fun” will cause you to laugh, and may also make you cry.

About the Author: Raised in South Deerfield, Massachusetts, Ann pursued a career as a nurse and graduated from Fitchburg State College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. She primarily worked in various ICUs for 30 years. Showing dedication to her area of expertise, she earned both her adult Critical Care RN and Cardiac Surgery specialty certificates.

Seeking challenges outside of the workplace, Ann obtained her private and commercial pilot licenses, in both single and multiengine airplanes.

Presently keeping her feet on the ground, she travels, hikes, and climbs mountains whenever possible. Conquering all 48 summits in the White Mountains of NH which are above 4000 feet in elevation, she is a member of the AMC’s 4000-Footer club. Photography, birding, and cooking are her other favorite hobbies.

Ann currently lives in Rhode Island with her husband, Wayne, and her rescue dog. For more information, visit her website
