Caroline J. Wheeler RN, BSN, Contributes a Chapter to a New Anthology
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ROCKAWAY BEACH, Ore. - Jun 22, 2017 - In the new book, Nurse SPARKS, Caroline Wheeler writes about her journey as a hospice nurse.
In a story titled, “Angels, Heartbeats, and Stethoscopes,” Caroline shares stories of her career providing care at the end of life care for her patients and how the death of her father made her life’s work even more important.
Caroline says, “Not everyone believes in angels. However, for some patients and their families, hospice nurses, (and the whole team, including office staff), are angels. Angels who answer phone calls, bring supplies for comfort, providing skilled care, compassion, instruction, and reassurance right to the end. Often to the very last breath, their loved one takes on this earth. Then the angel takes the stethoscope and listens for the heartbeat…”
Caroline J. Wheeler was born in Christchurch, New Zealand. She graduated in 1992 with a Bachelor of Health Science (Nursing) and worked in Wellington, in community and inpatient mental health. She then moved to the United States, passed the NCLEX (board exam), and continued her nursing career.
Caroline’s experience encompasses 25 years, predominantly home health & hospice, mental health, med/surgical, and long-term care/ memory care. Whenever she leaves a job the most common statements of farewell are, “We’ll miss your smile,” and, “You’re a breath of fresh air.” A Hospice Medical Director once asked her to be the nurse for his father. As Director of a large Oregon Hospice, he had many nurses to choose from. This remains one of the highlights of her career. Living on the Oregon Coast, Caroline loves photography, kayaking, the outdoors, seafood, and beach walks. She loves to travel, whether it’s road trips, exploring the United States, or the World. She loves meeting people, socializing, and helping others. She loves cats and always has one or two rescue kitties. Owner/ member of Wheeler Marketing Group, LLC, a healthcare copywriting/ content marketing business, Caroline also works part-time in a clinical role, to maintain her contact with patients.
Compiled by Authentic Messengers and Anita Stewart, RN, edited by Allison Saia, and published by Positive Media Press, Nurse SPARKS is filled with the stories of nurses from across the nation. Stories that reveal what it feels like to be working in a field that takes all of your heart and soul on a daily basis. A career that sometimes takes one to their knees, sends one home crying, exhausted, and spent of all energy. Or one that uplifts, opens the heart, inspires and illuminates.
