Hours of Operation: Mon - Fri 8:00am - 8:00pm


My name is Allison and I am a registered nurse. I am going to be writing a weekly blog called “Off The Charts.” This will be a nursing based blog that covers all aspects of the healthcare system. I have the education, knowledge, experience and expertise to write this blog.

After graduating from High School, I received my Bachelor’s s of Science in Business Administration with a Major in Marketing and a Minor in Communications.

I began my career in the business world, selling medical services to nursing homes as well as business services to companies. I realized that sales weren’t fulfilling my desire to help people or making a difference in their lives. I decided to take a leap of faith and make a change in my career.
In 2009 I graduated from Nursing School. I began working in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Hospital.

After working for many years in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, I began to have my own health problems. I had 8 surgeries, spent 6 months confined to a hospital bed and the next 3 years unable to walk. I have the ability to speak not only as an ICU Registered Nurse, but also as a patient.

I also have an enormous amount of experience in substance abuse. This is so prevalent in today’s society. Does the exposure to medication given in the health care system set people up for misuse of prescription medications and other chemical substances?

I welcome any topics, questions, or comments. Thank you for allowing me to share my experiences w you.
