Month: May 2020

Member of the Month: Coretta Collins

Coretta Collins has always wanted to be a writer. But she’s also always wanted to work in healthcare. As she pursued a career as a nurse practitioner her passion for writing got pushed to the backburner.

But eventually, she realized she could bring her two loves together and she launched her blog Confessions of a Nurse Practitioner.

Juggling a blog with a demanding career in healthcare is no easy feat any time of any year, but with the world in the midst of a global health pandemic Coretta’s consistency with her blog makes her a superhero indeed. For this and more, Coretta is our Member of the Month for May 2020.

Read on to get to know more about Coretta and her blog.


Writing My Way Through Cancer

Things could be worse. I could have cancer.

That was always my go-to, my retort and my refrain when I got bad news. When I found out my boyfriend was cheating on me. When I found out I was broke and my checking account was overdrawn. Even when I found out I had lupus.

But on January 24, 2020, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I had no mantra to make me feel better.
