Hey there! I’m so happy you stopped by to learn more about Nurse FERN. She’s my alter ego, and guess what? She can be yours too. Nurse Fern is the financially enlightened nurse who is here to help you gain control of your money so you can enjoy life. I like to imagine that she’s beautiful, sarcastic, and wicked smart.
Enough about her for a moment — My name is Emma and I’m the creator of this site. I’ve been a nurse since 2010, working in the MICU, ER, CCT, and now CDI (clinical documentation integrity). My heart and sass truly belong in the ER, but my current co-workers put up with me just fine.
When I graduated in 2010 I had $46,000 in student loan debt. A few years into my career I got serious about paying it off. Since then I’ve had many financial wins, but they all stem from taking that first step and starting with one thing I could work towards.
Did you know my dream (and Fern’s) is to help every nurse become financially enlightened? Yup, a shimmery halo of wealth happiness for all!
I’m here because I know what financial fitness can do to improve your everyday life. You deserve to have choices not limited by your finances.
