The blogoshpere is booming with passionate and entertaining nurse bloggers. I’ve seen a few lists that compile the best nurse blogs or the top nurses to follow on twitter, pinterest, and even Google plus. However, I’ve never seen a single location where you can find a comprehensive list of nursing blogs and their social media accounts. It goes without saying that nurses who blog are also active on social media so why not get everything together in one location?
It seems like everything in healthcare has been improved by technology. Unfortunately, a few key processes are still stuck in the past. Nurse schedules are still primarily managed on pen and paper. Hospitals require all patient information be documented in an electronic health record (EHR), but for some reason making sure that there are nurses scheduled to care for those patients is a matter that hasn’t, for the most part, been modernized. Fortunately, there’s an app for that. The problems of nurse scheduling can be a thing the past thanks to NurseGrid.
The American Journal of Nursing has awarded the honor of book of the year to The Nerdy Nurse’s Guide to Technology. The book received first place honors in the Information Technology/Social Media category.
I am sincerely honored and grateful that the AJN has selected my book as one noteworthy in the year 2014. To have my little technology and social media guidebook alongside textbooks and other prestigious nursing publications is mindblowing.
The Comcast data cap that has been put in place within the last year is causing serious issues in my household. For the first time in forever (yes, I just quoted Frozen), I am forced to be conscious of my internet usage or else be forced to pay the price (literally). At $10 per extra 50gbs, it can add up fast. To make matters worse, it’s leading to disputes between my husband and I over who is entitled to watch Netflix. As well as conversations with my son and I over whether or not he can watch another Youtube video.
You’re a nurse, and your job is to take care of people, right? So, why does it seem that sometimes you have to spend as much time taking care of your “technological solutions” and EMRs as you do taking care of your patients? As if you don’t have enough stress in your work, do you also need stress over the high-tech of high-touch?
When the new iPhone 6 Plus came on the scene I knew I just had to have one, even though they were the bigfoot of the tech world and nearly impossible to find. But even before I had my hands on the phone itself I was looking for a case to protect it. With the big deal that was made out of #bendgate I knew that I couldn’t risk one second of having outside a reliable case. Luckily, my husband and I received the Ballistic Tough Jacket Maxx and Urbanite iPhone 6 Plus cases to review.
Having a smartphone is an obligation that often is accompanied with a high price tag. Just recently I was talking about wanting to buy an iPhone 6 plus and the $300-500 price tag associated with the phone enough is enough to make most look for a different option. Fortunately for those who are budget-conscious, yet still want a smartphone with all the bells and whistles, Virgin Mobile Custom has you covered.
This Eggtronic Hub-It Sync and Charge Station review has been facilitated by a sample product. Opinions stated are my own. We have a lot of devices in our house. This can often lead to frustration and confusion when the favorite iPhone charger is occupied or my husband doesn’t remember that he put his iPhone on […]
Clinical integration is pretty amazing. It’s not quite an ACO, yet allows a healthcare organizations within a community to loosely associate in order to provide better care for their patients. These hospitals and private practices agree to share data about the patients they care for with one another and agree to practice by defined health initiatives. It’s a way to provide better care across the continuum and also allows for providers to increase their reimbursement.
This means more money coming into hospitals and physician’s offices, which means they can hire more nurses!
