Henrietta the Health Care Worker Has Your Back at Grand Rounds!


You all know Henrietta, the Health Care Worker.

What? You’ve never met her?

Well, you’ve been reading her for years.

She’s Geena’s alter ego over at Code Blog: Tales of a Nurse!

Today, she is making a special appearance and answering health related questions using our Grand Rounds submissions!

Do have a look-see at Henrietta’s special advice-dispensing style!

Have coffee, will travel – to Starbucks – to read this week.

Starbucks, Grand Rounds and Geena.

It’s gonna be a good afternoon!


There are some congratulations in order here in the medical blogosphere!


First of all, NP’s Save Lives has passed her exam and is now, officially a Family Nurse Practitioner!!!

Why not head over and give her a big virtual hug and tell her, “Job well done!”

Her excitement is palpable over at “It’s Official” at The Nurse Practitioner’s Place.


Nathan, owner and proprietor of “A Jolly Company” has graduated from medical school and started residency. I’m moving him up to “Doctors of the Blogosphere”. Stop by, say hello and offer your congratulations!


Enrico, over at Mexico Medical Student is celebrating the end of his second year of medical school. Yeah, he still has two years to go, but he’s so excited that I am excited for him!


As usual, it’s time to remind everyone that Change of Shift is going to be up and over at Pixel RN on June 28th. Beth would love to receive any and all posts by or about nursing! She has a new project in the works, too! Send submissions via Blog Carnival or to bethcoll66 at hotmail dot com.


Last but not least, there is a new medical “carnival” coming out, with a unique topic and unique perspectives. Its called Surgexperiences and will look at the world of surgery from every angle. The link will take you to the homepage and has all the information. In a nutshell, if you are a surgeon, work in the OR as a nurse or tech or you have had experiences as a patient in surgery, send in your stories! The inaugural edition is July 1st.


PS:  If you have a blog that I have not linked to (a medical blog) or know of a good one you don’t see, please email me and let me know…I try to keep my links current!!

    I’d love to be a part of this blog circle… I’m currently a VN student and apprenticing with a midwife and I’m doing doula work on the side. Does that qualify me? 😉 Thanks for the great blog….
