2007 Explodes With Grand Rounds!

fireworksHappy New Year!

And what better way to kick off 2007 than with Rob over at Musings of a Distractible Mind and his exploding Grand Rounds!

Okay, the Grand Rounds don’t explode, but the theme does!

Rob even offers a selection of music to accompany your perusal of this week’s medical blogosphere collection. I chose “Burning Down the House”. You may be prefer the “1812 Overture.”

Either way, I’ve got my ‘puter, my coffee and my speakers turned up to eleven!

Let the explosions begin!


The next Change of Shift will be right here at Emergiblog on January 11th! Submissions are already arriving!

Send in your nursing-related posts to me by using either Blog Carnival or the “Contact Me” button in the Emergiblog tool bar – deadline is January 10th by 5 pm!

I love hosting Change of Shift, but I’m also happy to spread the wealth, so if you would like to host an upcoming edition, please let me know!


I’ve added some new bloggers to my link list – many of them nurses bloggers just starting out! If you have a blog that I have not linked to, please send me your url so that I can (1) read and (2) link!

If you graduated from nursing school and I still have you listed under “Student Nurses”, let me know so I can put your link with the nurses! Same with medical students, except I’d put you up with the doctors!

I removed some links of blogs that had no posts for over 3 months – if yours was one of them and you are still blogging but just on “hiatus”, please let me know and I’ll put you right back up there!

I’m working my way down my link list and am halfway through the Docs right now…I love to read the blogs and hate when I get behind! I have three weeks before I officially begin my BSN program through the University of Wisconsin so I intend to make sure I catch up on everyone before then!!!!


Also, Radiology Grand Rounds VII is up at filmjacket.com! If you’re like me, you’ll learn something new from every edition!

    Oh! Oh! Oh!

    I fall into that magical category of nursing student bloggers who have just graduated!

    I’ll keep you posted–as I take the PN NCLEX soon. LONG story–life has changed drastically and I have struggled. For now, I’m still a “student.”

    I’m not sure a recent post is suitable for Change of Shift…so will e-mail you!
