It’s time again for Change of Shift, the bi-weekly nursing blog carnival!
It’s an eclectic selection this week: hospital to office, students and veterans, money and…well, poo-poo, disasters and preparedness.
Quick note: I have a “mailing list” that I use to mail out CoS notifications. If you are not on the list and want to be, drop me a line. If you are on the list and do not want to be, *sniff*, drop me a line!
On a similar note, Shawn Kennedy writes a post giving Praise for Haiti Nurse Volunteers – and a Word of Caution. Important info, to be found at the American Journal of Nursing’s blog Off the Charts.
Dr. Dean at the MillionaireNurse.com Blog is right. I, for one, am totally clueless on my retirement info. Find out what you need to know in 401k 101: The Basics of Retirement Investing for Millionaire Nurses. Time to go look up my funds!
I have absolutely no doubt this story is true – chalk it up to two decades in an ER. Submitted by a co-worker of NYCRN, author of Pee and Sympathy: True Stories from an RN, I give you One Flew Over the Poo-Poo’s Nest. Seriously.
At Career Transitions and Other Nursing Topics, Laura at Nurse Connect discusses disaster preparedness on a personal level. Living directly on the Hayward Fault gives me reason to agree that A Prudent Nurse is Always Prepared.
Keith from Digital Doorway takes time out from exploring the country (and dealing with aggressive Armadillos!) to submit The Demise of the Public Health Nurse. Sadly, I witnessed this first-hand during my community practicum last semester. Keith may be contemplating his “occupational navel”, but he describes it beautifully in Of Nursing and Soulful Employment.
From the “Egg On My Face” department – in the last CoS, I told Max. E. Nurse from It Shouldn’t Happen in Health Care that if he stopped blogging I’d go down to Australia and punch him. He thanked me profusely….because he lives in the U.K! Seems Max has a new job and needs us to send him some blog love on The Flip Side…
TC at donorcyle is posting again! Still hard at work, this time from an office, she answers that all important question Mama, What Do You DO All Day? Responsible for 250 patients? I need a nap just reading the post!
And that, my friends, concludes this edition of Change of Shift! Thank you for reading, thank you for linking and thanks to all those who submitted this week!
UPDATE: The next CoS will be over at RehabRN, so send submissions to “hotelrehab at nyms dot net”.
BTW, I’m hosting Grand Rounds on Tuesday, so post away and send ’em my way!
(Remember, Change of Shift now has subscription options; you can follow by email or RSS feed. An aggregated feed of credible, rotating health and medicine blog carnivals is also available. Many thanks to Walter Jesson at Highlight Health for setting those feeds up!)
