Today I visited with a lovely young lady who is a labor and delivery nurse. You know that stole my heart. I found it interesting that she was having a book give away and asked the questions: How did you find me? Do you have a blog? and What do you think about nursing blogs and their contributions to the profession? Wow, very coincidental and convenient! I had fun reading the comments. My favorite was by St. Catherine.
I believe that most healthcare blogs help the healthcare industry. They provide a way for a patient or a prospective healthcare worker to peer inside the life of a nurse. Why should a professional nurse's thoughts, ideas, or feelings remain secret? Patients and prospective nurses alike, gain insight on what it takes to be a nurse. Fellow nurses share in your challenges and joys. I think it's a win-win situation.
St. Catherine can be found at Highs, Lows, and Career Changing Woes which is located at @http://stcatherinealexandria.blogspot.com/ She states her blog is about "A Girl's Journey From Dropping Out of Law School to Becoming a Nurse." Wow, with a name like St. Catherine Alexandria you know I'm going to be popping in! Note to self: I love her musical selections! Oh yeah....
Anyway, Prisca's blog is called N is for Nurse @ http://nursesomeday.blogspot.com/ I found her blog an interesting mix, a little bit of this and a tad of that which we are going to dub a Ragbag ( creative little word search from the word mixture). Great little visit; which may be why I had saved it. Enjoy!
