About Us

Welcome to Ask The Nurse Expert – where curiosity meets nursing expertise, empathy meets information, and where you find answers to your most pressing health and wellness questions.

Born from a passion for holistic health education and grounded in the rich experience of registered nurses, we’ve been your trusted companion on the path of preventative healthcare since 2007.

Since 2007, Ask the Nurse Expert ATNE has been providing sound and practical nursing and health advice intended for the common people – people who do not have medical expertise but nonetheless need all the medical advice they can get.

Our main goal has always been to answer complicated medical questions in an easy-to-understand language. No jargon. No complex terms. Just plain and simple helpful pieces of advice for you and everyone else.

But since then, Ask the Nurse Expert has grown from being an interactive website into a much larger authority site for health. We share the latest, the most in-depth, and the most reliable information about anything and everything about your health from common acne problems to grave diseases like cancer.

Our Inception

In the bustling halls of a hospital, amidst the symphony of life and healing, a vision was conceived. Richard Lee Garcia, a seasoned US Registered Nurse hailing from Illinois, recognized a growing gap between the complex world of medical information and the layman’s understanding of it. As someone who has navigated the diverse realms of ICU-CCU, Medical-Surgical Units, Emergency Rooms, Wound Care, and Geriatric Nursing both in the US and overseas since 2002, Richard envisioned a bridge that could span this gap.

Thus, in 2007, Ask The Nurse Expert took its first breath, aiming to demystify the complex medical jargon and offer easy-to-digest, yet profoundly insightful resources for individuals around the globe. It was not just a website; it was a beacon of knowledge, embodying the spirit of nurturing and healing that is the essence of nursing.

Our Mission

We at Ask The Nurse Expert strive to be your trusted health companion, offering a gentle hand to guide you through the intricate maze of healthcare information. Our mission is simple yet profound: to empower you with knowledge, to nurture your curiosity, and to foster a community where health and wellness thrive through preventative measures and natural remedies.

We take pride in providing hundreds of advice monthly, answering your queries in a manner that is both informative and relatable, without ever straying into the territory of diagnosing, healing, or treating diseases or ailments. Instead, we focus on education, prevention, and promoting a holistic approach to health.

Our mission remains the same: to spread health awareness to everyone so no one is left out due to ignorance. We believe that with enough accurate information, our readers will become empowered to heal themselves from the comfort of their homes. For serious cases, our guides will help you make well-informed decisions necessary when seeking a doctor’s help.
