About Me

Mark at the Florence Nightingale Museum, London UK 2009

Hi there! My name is Mark and I’m from Quezon City, Philippines. I graduated from St. Jude College Manila in 2006, which was quite a controversial time for the Nursing Profession. Growing up, I was surrounded by people who had taken up Nursing and migrated to the States to live the American dream. I have fond memories of spending time in a hospital as my mom worked in a Hospital Laboratory. The smell of the hospital is something I’ll never forget, and I even ended up working there myself!

After graduation, I worked at a Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Company for two years handling claims of Healthcare Providers for a Health Insurance company. This job gave me a wonderful platform to understand the healthcare industry of America. I also worked in Teleradiology, which is the fusion of healthcare and technology. This experience gave me the leadership and management skills that have been invaluable to me as an Emergency Nurse.

I’ve been blogging since 2010, starting on the free platform of WordPress and then moving to my current blog, Anursedad. I’m now a happy father of two wonderful kids and my wife Brigette and I live on the beautiful island of Guam, USA. Moving forward on this new and improved blog, I want to continue to inspire Nurses who are struggling with NCLEX and those who graduated outside of the United States and want to pursue their American Dream as a nurse
