Karon has been featured in People Magazine and various TV talk
shows as publicity for her non-fiction "Novel",
NURSES ON OUR OWN, depicting
her nursing experience and adventures from the goldcoast to the ghetto,
from her days at an inner
city hospital as a student nurse, as an emergency room
nurse, and as a nurse in the psychiatric unit of a community hospital, to
running the first
aid stations of major motion pictures and TV series such as The Fury, Dr.
Detroit, Risky Business, and Lady Blue to name just a few. She was also the President
of a home health care agency and private duty nursing
service which pioneered the development
of home care in 1973 before it was fashionable. She and her partner
married Chicago police officers and they acted as
private investigators assisting Karon's husband's private
detective agency which led to exciting venues.
Karon and her partner, Joy Catterson, were young, idealistic nurses - on their own. Through the perilous adventures of establishing a private nursing practice and dramatic court battle to regain their professional reputations after being fired by a powerful hospital, their book, NURSES ON OUR OWN, tells the astonishing, updated story of two women who defied the entire medical establishment.
