Grand Rounds: A Sure Cure For Tuesday Anxieties and Depressions!

luncheonAh, the original nursing pot luck!

Trust me, wherever there is nursing, there is food!

Looks like these ladies are just waiting for Grand Rounds!

This week, the venerable compilation first started by Dr. Nick Genes is being hosted at Anxiety, Addiction and Depression Treatments and it looks like a good one!

Some old faces, some new faces and some interesting topics await our perusal.

(PS – those nurses caps look like big ol’ white bedpans! 1/10 on the Emergiblog Cap Rating Scale!)



Don’t forget that Change of Shift is being hosted by Protect the Airway this Thursday! If you have not sent in your post, you still have time!

You can utilize the Blog Carnival service or email your submissions directly to Airway Control at “airway control at protect the airway dot com”


Did you know that the voting is going on for the 2006 Weblog Awards? You’ll see some familiar names in the ballot box: Flea, Respectful Insolence, The Cheerful Oncologist, and last but never, ever least, Dr. Steven Palter at DocintheMachine!

You can vote once every twenty four hours and voting ends on December 15th, so you really can vote early and often in this election!

These are all great guys and great blogs so show some support to our fellow medical blog colleagues!


And then, while I was looking over at Orac’s site (Respectful Insolence) to get the right url for the link, I discover that nominations are being made for the 2006 Medical Weblog Awards at Medgadget!

There is no nursing blog category specifically, so my old friend Coturnix nominated Emergiblog for “in whichever category you think fits the best”! LOL! I was not only surprised to see it, I was honored to be nominated, especially by Coturnix. A girl never forgets her first link, you know….

There are some totally cool prizes this year!

Well, I’m over to do some nominating myself!

    You deserve it (and the first link time is the hardest, or so they say….) 😉

    You were my first (link)!

    Maturing as a profession isn’t easy. I subscribe to the Chinese agage, crisis is always an opportunity.

    May all nurses take advantage of the crisis to transform the profession and to draw together for the common purpose – practicing to serve patients.

    You do good work, Kim. Your children are all following in your footsteps – in people serving professions. If that isn’t the distillation of nursing, I don’t know what is. They may not have chosen nursing, per se, but they are evidently applying what they admire in you in their own professional lives!

    No guilt, no worries – perhaps a major pat on the back!

  • […] Thanks to Kim at Emergiblog, whom I already think of as mentor. […]
