Hi there! I’m Emily, an RN and freelance writer.
By day, I am a critical care nurse, and, by night, I am a budding professional freelance writer. I created “Emily Will Writes All” to foster my love for writing and health advocacy. In my writing you will find that my voice is real and my content is reliable.
I am a graduate of East Carolina University with a BA in English/Creative Writing, and I also hold a BS in Nursing from Barton College. This unique combination of educational and professional experience imparts me with a skill for writing and clinical ability.
I have begun professional writing because there is an ever-growing need for health education. A vast range of information is available on the Internet to anyone who is seeking it. In my nursing practice, I find that my patients are often ill-informed by their Internet searches, which can lead to provider distrust and inadequate patient care. Education is a vital part of direct and indirect patient care. Having a full understanding of the problem and the solution can be the difference between patients seeking treatment versus avoiding treatment.
How I Can Help
Patient education is a priority in my practice. Unfortunately, given the time constraints, particularly in the in-patient setting, education falls second to patient care and documentation. Often nurses will quickly print out information as the patient is walking out the door at discharge. Now the patients have tons of questions, wondering “what just happened to me?” and “where do I go from here?” This is where I can help.
