It’s Love Over At Change of Shift!!!!!


…is up over at Nurse Ratched’s Place, where Valentine’s Day comes early this year!
The Harlequin nuring novels alone would be a reason to visit, but the posts look even better!

Mother Jones, RN, received more submissions than any Change of Shift so far!

Many thanks for offering to host this week.

Two weeks from now Change of Shift will be right back here at Protect the Airway, so you got stories? You know where to send ’em – email Airway Control at “airwaycontrol at protecttheairway dot com” or use the extremely efficient Blog Carnival form on the sidebar!


There is still time before the March 19th deadline to submit your essay to the Nursing Jobs.org nursing scholarship essay competiton.

The theme is “Why I Chose Nursing” and there will be a total of $5000 in scholarships awarded.

It’s simple! Write it. Post it. Send it!

I know what it is costing to go to school these days, so don’t let this opportunity pass you by!


Speaking of school, I got my first grade on my first APA format issue paper. Now bragging is not my style and you all know I’m just a quiet, somewhat subdued personality not prone to fits of bragging or beating my own drum….

(Three hundred former co-workers just did spit takes on their computers.)

But the plain fact is:

I GOT A FREAKIN’ 100%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you.


Love may be in the air over at Nurse Ratched’s Place, but there’s a lot of link love goin’ on here at Emergiblog!

There are so many bloggers I’m discovering for the first time, my link list is longer than (WARNING: Obscure rock n roll reference approaching!) Steve Perry’s hair in the mid 1990s!

By the way, if I can ever find a way to fit my 1995 trip to Puerto Rico to see Steve Perry into a nursing topic, I’ll tell the whole story! With all due respect to husband and family, it ranks right up there as one of the top three totally-cool events of my life!

    Good job… just wait until you get instructors who want two different writing formats… APA, ASA, AAA, MLA, etc. Infact, I had an instructor at SJSU who would change the writing format on each assignment, just to make sure that a) you read the assignment thoroughly, and b) that you knew all the collegiate writing formats. What a headache.

    I have some really good APA format links if you want them for citing weird references (ie: interviews, tv / radio clips, etc)

    Congrats again Kim.

    Big congrats on the paper!

    And that is *NOT* an obscure reference to anyone with musical taste. Now, a comment on his “Oh Sherry” song, written for his girlfriend at the time, that *might* be. (Thank god they never got married — Sherry Perry!)
