THERESA BROWN, RN: Theresa Brown is an oncology nurse and one of the very few nationally prominent nurse-writers in the areas of nursing and health care. She works at UPMC Shadyside Hospital and received her BSN degree from the School of Nursing at the University of Pittsburgh. Theresa is a paid contributor to the New York Timesblog Well. Her book, Critical Care: A New Nurse Faces Death, Life, and Everything in Between, was released June, 1 2010, by HarperCollins. She has had print pieces in the New York Times “ Science Times” section, and in Scrubs Magazine, and Op-Eds on, the New York Times, and in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. One of Theresa’ s Wellblog posts “ A Nurse’ s View of Health Care Reform” earned her an invitation to the White House where she met President Obama, who then quoted from her blog post to a gathering of nurses. Theresa has a PhD in English from the University of Chicago and taught English for three years at Tufts University before staying home with her children and then returning to school to become a nurse. It is a career change she has never regretted.
