Ragbag ~ A little bit of this and a tad of that...

         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 @  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 @ 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!


  1. Some people discriminate nurses because they consider these men and women in medical uniforms and nursing shoes as inferior beings; the one who takes orders from physicians and even from patients. With many nurses' blogs nowadays, I know that in one way or another many people will have a change of mind in their perspectives about nurses, with blogs at hand, people will know that nurses are people who give care in spite of their own needs specially care also from others, who heal though they will be prone to diseases and who obey despite the advance knowledge about health and medicine. I'm proud of nurses same with nurses' blogs.

  2. I'm so glad you discovered my blog because it gave me the chance to discover yours!
    I eagerly await your new posts. =)
    It is so refreshing to hear others' perspective on a (what I believe will be) satisfying career.
