My name is Nancy, and I am a full-time Intensive Care Nurse. I live in London with my husband and our two teenagers.
I absolutely love my job – I’m part of a team of nurses, doctors and support workers looking after the most acutely unwell patients in a busy London teaching hospital. I work a mixture of 13-hour day shifts and 12-hour night shifts, and the work I do is very technical and challenging.
However, I only work thirteen shifts a month; so I also have plenty of days off to relax, take a break from the intensity, and do something different. This blog catalogues my life in between the shifts.
