Change of Shift Nursing Blog Carnival

Offwhitelogo“Change of Shift” is intended to be a blog about nurses and for nurses, but all are welcome to submit! This includes nursing students of all ages and in all stages of their programs!

Are you a doctor or a medical student with a funny nurse story, some constructive criticism or advice on how to interact with physicians? Submit your story!

Are you a patient with an anecdote about your experience with nursing or nurses? Share them with us!

The rules are simple:

  • All submissions will be posted, including rants and criticism. We’re nurses, we can take it. Passionate, but polite is the way to go!
  • If you post to Grand Rounds that week, the submission to Change of Shift must be a different post.
  • Keep the nursing perspective at Grand Rounds strong, in fact, make it stronger if you can by submitting each week.
  • All known HIPAA privacy rules apply.
  • If you are blogging about your own experience as a patient, make sure your story does not reveal any information about other patients you came into contact with during your stay/visit/experience.
  • If you are blogging about a relative, be sure to get their permission to do so, if possible.
  • All submissions must be in by 5:00 pm on the Wednesday before the “carnival” is posted.
  • Be sure to put “Change of Shift” in the subject line so the host doesn’t miss it or if it accidentally gets puts it in the “bulk” folder, the host will find it.
  • Posts containing rude or foul language or inappropriate material for general consumption (you know what I mean) will be purged.
  • No post consisting of “lists” of web sites, books, movies, videos, podcasts, You Tubes, Tweets, blogs, drugs, diseases, or anything else will be included.

The “carnival” will be posted on Thursdays so as not to interfere with Grand Rounds.

After that, the carnival will post every other Thursday.

Emergiblog will host unless an offer to host is made to the carnival director (me!)
You can submit your post directly to me at kmcallister-nine-one-one at, by the Contact button at the top of the page, or you can submit through Blog Carnival.

I’ll update this post as needed and if there are any other ways to submit, I’ll post them here.

In the meantime, all suggestions and comments are welcomed!
