HEY, EVERYONE! My name is Alyssa and I am a nursing student in my senior year at the University of Connecticut. The Fit Nurse comes from my passion for all things health & wellness. This is where I share my experiences — I’m learning to find balance in my life while helping my patients to become their best selves, too.

If I’m not here, you can find me on the yoga mat, curled up in bed watching HGTV, eating one too many slices of veggie pizza, caught up in VSCO photo edits because it’s my obsession, & training for the occasional half (or full) marathon. You can keep up with my everyday thoughts & stories by following me on Insta — @the.fitnurse.

I’ve created this space to share my own unique & authentic voice. Sometimes, between long clinical days, vital signs, & endless charting, I need a creative outlet to just let go & be 100% myself. So, feel free to stay a while, & join the conversation! 🙂
