I’m dropping the BlogCarnival submission route due the gargantuan amount of spam submissions it engenders. There may be a time and a place for the “Top Ten Uses for Tea Bags in Healthcare Reform”, but this isn’t it!
Let’s get started!
Sue Hassmiller is the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Senior Advisor for Nursing. She is also a volunteer with the Red Cross. Abandonment Guilt, her final blog post from tornado-ravaged Alabama, can be found at AJN’s Off the Charts.
Just pulled my head out of the sand long enough to notice that Emily at crzegrl.net has morphed into Emily at FlightEMS.com! For those who did not read her story, here is After Seven And A Half Years, crzegrl.net Becomes FlightEMS.com. This gal has been blogging since 2003. Yes. You read that correctly!
Nurse Teeny has segued from hospital to the the community and finds the nurse/patient connection just as strong. So strong, in fact, she wonders Can You Care Too Much? Where do you draw the line? Posted at The Makings of a Nurse.
Psychologist Romeo Vitelli has written a wonderful two-part history of the life of Florence Nightingale. There are details here I had not known before! The Bedridden Activist (Part 1) is posted at Providentia. Part 2 can be found at the link at the bottom of Part 1.
Okay, this is hilarious. In the “old days” there was the CCU and the ICU. The CCU nurses thought the ICU was all dirty and septic and (ewww) GI and the ICU thought the CCU was all high-brow, didn’t want to get their hands dirty and spent all their time hovering over monitor strips. Check out the Caffeine and Xanax post Scared of the SICU. Some things never change!
So, my plan for Change of Shift is to put up an edition at least once a month, towards the end of the month. Submissions received during the month will all be posted in that edition.
I’ll also be perusing the nursing blogosphere and “collecting” posts to feature in the carnival throughout the month, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself not remembering that you submitted! : )
Thanks for reading, and keep blogging!
