Army Nurse Set on Fire by Colleague Wants to Resume Career

Almost 20 percent of her body was severely burned, including her entire face and ears, and parts of her arm and chest.

The army sent her to San Antonio to be treated at SAMMC's burn victim unit where she's had countless surgeries and been heavily medicated. She's also been meeting with behavioral health physicians who have been helping her with the PTSD she has experienced since the attack

Blanchard hopes to continue her career in nursing after she recovers more and has been inspired by the nurses she’s met at SAMMC to work with burn victims one day.


Katie Ann, we salute you!

Please let us know how we can help you in your recovery and return to nursing practice.

We wish you all the best,

Donna Maheady
President of www.ExceptionalNurse.com
