Julie Wilkinson, BSN, RN, is a former writer for Verywell Health covering colon cancer. She's currently a hospice nurse at Celtic Hospice and Home Health in Pennsylvania. She has worked in critical care units, the emergency room, pain management, and hospice throughout her nursing career.
Julie earned a bachelor's degree in nursing from the University of Phoenix and an associate's degree in nursing from St. Petersburg College. She held certifications as a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse and Critical Care Registered Nurse and is a member of the Honor Society of Nursing.
If you or a loved one is facing concerns about the symptoms, testing or treatment of colon cancer, I hope you find answers to your questions and the support you deserve here. I have often found that a little education and a lot of support can go a long way in easing your journey through the labyrinth of medical care.
