At any rate, Huggies Brazil is revolutionizing social media for babies by having a device that clips on to the front of an infants diaper and sends a tweet when they pee. Now the whole world can know how often your little one goes to the potty, and since you’re too busy on social media to actually check and see if your child is wet, you can get a notification on your phone. Oh, and any of your followers… or maybe your babies followers…. will get a notification as well.
The nursing profession offers a solid, steady career path. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nursing jobs are expected to grow at a “faster than average” rate and the number of retiring nurses will create a shortage in coming years. Even with these circumstances, this is not the time to sit back and take it easy when applying for a nursing job. Your resume is your first impression on a future employer, and there’s no better way to initially showcase your achievements and professionalism.
It seems almost impossible to imagine, but your data may not be 100% in healthcare systems. In fact, 94% of hospitals had leaked data with an average number of stolen records at 2,769. That’s a lot of data containing all sorts of private information. And even though almost all organizations are working to protect and secure their information (and in some cases your information) more than half of organizations report that they have no confidence that they can detect all data loss activities.

Hi NerdyNurse Readers! Please allow me to introduce myself as Lance Baily, founder of the free simulation resource website HealthySimulation.com, and The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists non-profit organization at SimGHOSTS.Org. As you may know, healthcare simulation technology continues to grow into nursing schools and medical centers around the world. For these fully immersive scenarios, realistic full-bodied manikins are controlled behind a two-way mirrors which allow technicians to pre-program or change vital signs “on the fly”. Also behind this mirror is a clinical educator who speaks as the voice of the patient while learners begin to assess the scene and take actions. The entire event is usually being digitally recorded and displayed to another debrief room, which can also show performance analysis indicators. After the scenario concludes, the educator and learner return to the debrief and review the footage, discussing the event in a constructive non-personal way. As you can imagine, between manikin robots, camera hardware, endless microphones, analysis software, server storage racks, and miles of cable – the technology can become overwhelming quite quickly.
