Viagra Prescription Online

Viagra prescription online Boy, viagra prescription online time flies when you’re not paying attention!

Viagra prescription online I had a fantastic experience, viagra prescription online last week, viagra prescription online and I’m just now blogging about it!!

Viagra prescription online I spoke on blogging at the annual conference of the International Academy of Nursing Editors.

Viagra prescription online Here is a picture with Shawn Kennedy, viagra prescription online Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Nursing, viagra prescription online taken by Peggy Chinn, viagra prescription online Editor-in-Chief of Advances in Nursing Science, viagra prescription online following the plenary session.

Viagra prescription online (I am so going to name drop here!)


Viagra prescription online You could say they are totally “INANE”! No, viagra prescription online I did not just insult my audience, viagra prescription online that is the acronym for the group. Viagra prescription online The INANE “About” page (linked above) describes a “non-organization” without formal officers, viagra prescription online elections or dues, viagra prescription online and with a mission of promoting “best practices in publishing and high standards in the nursing literature.”

Viagra prescription online So while the name hints at a great sense of humor about themselves, viagra prescription online their journalism is serious business.


Transitioning to the online milieu in publishing and engaging readers via social media is challenging. Viagra prescription online Sessions were designed to guide members of INANE in the basics of blogging, viagra prescription online Twitter and Facebook

While I covered blogs, viagra prescription online Shawn’s enthusiasm for Twitter was contagious (she got this casual Tweeter using Tweetdeck); and Leslie Nicoll, viagra prescription online Editor-in-Chief of CIN: Computers, viagra prescription online Informatics, viagra prescription online Nursing is a master of connecting via Facebook.


I’m all about social media; I’m definitely all about blogging. Viagra prescription online Many nursing journals are already active in the blogopshere.

  • INANE’s blog, viagra prescription online From the Editor’s Pen, viagra prescription online is written by Leslie Nicoll who (a) loves Cherry Ames and (b) is a Kindle expert. Viagra prescription online My kind of gal!
  • Peggy Chinn writes the blog for Advances in Nursing Science, viagra prescription online called Advancing Scholarly Discourse. Viagra prescription online I bookmarked this on first sight; it’s a definite need-to-read, viagra prescription online as is the journal itself.


I believe there will always be a place for print media, viagra prescription online particularly print journals.

Right now, viagra prescription online as I am typing this, viagra prescription online TweetDeck is scrolling, viagra prescription online my email is “dinging”, viagra prescription online and Facebook is telling me I have 6 notifications and 3 messages waiting. Viagra prescription online Online, viagra prescription online a million things vie for your attention. Viagra prescription online Even turned off, viagra prescription online there are a million temptations, viagra prescription online a millions potential distractions at your fingertips.

But when I’m curled up with my latest issue of the JEN: Journal of Emergency Nursing, viagra prescription online it has my full attention. Viagra prescription online No email, viagra prescription online no Facebook, viagra prescription online no Tweeps tweeting tweets to tweak my concentration.

Just a quiet read.

And speaking of JEN, viagra prescription online I met Renee Holleran, viagra prescription online Editor-in-Chief, viagra prescription online and I’ll be writing a guest editorial on social media at the beginning of next year.

All in all, viagra prescription online a most enjoyable, viagra prescription online INANE afternoon!

Cymbalta 20mg Pills $107.00

Editor Kitty is pretty funny!

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Actually, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 I’ll be hanging out with a bunch of “Editor Kitties” tomorrow!

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 I’m giving a talk on “Getting Started in the Blogosphere” at the annual conference of the International Academy of Nurse Editors, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 held at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Check out their initals: INANE! 😀 Something tells me this is a fun group of folks!

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Wish me luck. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 My biggest fear is they will introduce me and I’ll stand there with my mouth open and nothing will come out for an hour! Or all they will hear is Charlie Brown’s teacher: wah wah wah-wah wah…. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 😀


I have a new blog! I’m now blogging over at – my first post went up this week. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 The site just underwent a revamping as did the blog, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 and I’m looking forward to posting twice a week on nursing education and other nursing related topics. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 I’ll be earning my MSN eventually, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 so this was a perfect fit for me! Learning new html stuff, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 too! It was bound to find me! LOL!


And if it looks like my MacBookPro is smokin’, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 well, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 it’s because it is!

I’m in blog heaven!

Twice a month you can find me at, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 where I am writing about my recent experiences in the job market (and my hard-earned education in what NOT to do!).

The easiest way to find me is to subscribe to the newsletter.


Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00

You want to be a registered nurse?

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Let’s cut through the B.S. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 and get real about it.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Put a hold on all this soft-focus “I live to care!” or “It gives my life meaning…”

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Here’s the reality.


Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You will study your ass off.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Nursing science is based on biology, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 chemistry, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 microbiology, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 anatomy, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 physiology, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 psychology, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 sociology and philosophy. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Yeah, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 every single one of them. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You will incorporate those into every decision you make in your practice. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 It’s called critical thinking. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You master it and become a professional, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 or you don’t and you become a robotic technician.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Bottom line.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Your choice.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Oh, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 and the studying doesn’t stop after you graduate. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Nursing school is just the warm-up.


Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 The work is physically exhausting and emotionally demanding.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Are you tiny, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 petite? No? Neither am I and neither are your patients. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You will push, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 pull, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 lift, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 turn, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 transport and transfer loads you wouldn’t even consider attempting at a gym. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 The lightest patient is dead weight when bedridden.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You probably won’t get a chance to eat. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Need to pee? Should have thought of that before you left.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Legs that weigh 500 pounds each, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 feet that throb, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 backs that ache – welcome home after your shift. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Give that ibuprofen bottle a hug; it’s your best friend.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Patients die. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You are tough; it doesn’t bother you. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 But on your way home it hits that someone’s mother won’t be making Christmas dinner next week or you remember the father collapsing in your arms when his daughter was pronounced…

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 And you cry.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 It sucks.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You really want to deal with that?


Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You’re first in opinion polls and first on the firing line.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Oh yes, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 the public loves nurses.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Until you are the nurse.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Patients get pissed off. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 They are tired, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 in pain, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 hungry, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 cold, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 upset, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 frustrated, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 agitated, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 ticked off at the doctor, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 bad food, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 had to wait. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Guess what. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 YOU get the brunt of it. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Family members, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 too. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Decades of emotional baggage and they have to show they care for the patient by yelling at the RN.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 In twenty different languages!

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 YOU are the one through which all things come, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 and never fast enough! Including explanations for why every single department in the hospital is behind, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 late, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 inept. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 My favorite is fielding questions as to why Doctor Holy Mother hasn’t shown up yet.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 And when she does, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 expect to be totally ignored.


Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Body fluids.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 If the body produces it, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 you will handle it. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Feces (insert your own euphemism here); vomit; blood; infectious exudate, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 aka “pus”; vaginal drainage of every sort; amniotic fluid; saliva in the form of spit directed at your person and whatever secretions a trachea is producing on a given day.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Each fluid comes complete with it’s own odor. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 None of them are pleasant. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Often, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 when these body fluids occur in combination, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 their odors combine to produce a new and distinct aroma. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 When alcohol has been consumed and is in the process of being metabolized even more unique olfactory combinations ensue.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Some of these linger and will come home with you, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 as they seem to settle in your hair and skin, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 even without contact.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You will gag and most likely at one time or another you will vomit yourself.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Just keepin’ it real here, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 folks.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 If you are lucky, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 you will be wearing protective gear when said handling occurs.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Other times, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 all you can do is duck and pray.



They come from various state and federal agencies. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You can be sure of one thing: they will make your job as a registered nurse harder. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00


And if it shouldn’t, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 like nurse-patient ratios, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 the administration will find a way to turn it around and use it against you. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 That is a whole post in and of itself.

Ostensibly they are all for patient safety, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 but in reality they exist because somewhere, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 someone does not want to reimburse for something and so ponderous regulatory hoops will be put into place before the money will flow, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 usually in the form of “documentation”. Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 New forms, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 new regulations, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 more work, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 less patient care…

Makes ducking body fluids seem like a Disneyland “E” ticket….


Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 So, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 you still here?

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Seriously?

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 You must really want to be a nurse.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Okay, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 then.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Oh, augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 and all that soft-focus stuff?

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 About living to care and giving life meaning?

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 It’s true.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 We’ll talk about that in another post.

Augmentin 250mg pills $135.00 Just wanted to make sure we were all on the same page….
