"Would You Recommend Nursing" by Annette Tersigni RN, The YogaNurse®.:"Nursing is a calling. I was called when I was 48 years young and graduated at 51. The smartest move I ever made in my life. Becoming a nurse was not what I expected though. The 'eating your young thing.' I was determined to do something about that. I recognized there was a massive need to help nurses with their stress, anxiety, pain and suffering both in mind and body. I was a long time yoga teacher before I became a nurse. When I graduated from nursing I had a vision to unite the modern science of nursing with the ancient wisdom was born. Voila! The YogaNurse® was born! So yes, I certainly do recommend Nursing. By becoming a nurse it opened up a whole new career path for me and a life I love. And now I have the privilege of teaching thousands of nurses who want to be part of the YogaNurse Movement. We are together creating greater unity consciousness, with greater health, peace and wisdom both nurses and their patients worldwide."

    Annette Tersigni 58 by The Yoga Nurse,"Greetings readers. This is an absolutely fabulous time in my life. Why? I was once a Hollywood model and actress living a glamorous life, but while still enjoying a successful livelihood felt inspired to do something more with my life. This feeling led me to become a registered nurse, move to the East Coast and start my nursing career in the cardiac unit of a local North Carolina hospital. I first started using my therapeutic skills to help my co-workers deal with daily job stress. I then began incorporating yoga and meditation as forms of therapy with my patients and saw excellent results. I realized integrating yoga therapy and nursing was a valuable service that could benefit patients and people from all walks of life. With that in mind, I founded Yoga Nurse Medical Yoga and Stress Management and created a new field in health care called Yoga Nursing and I am now called the Yoga Nurse."
