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.
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!
If you’re looking for a place to connect with other healthcare professionals to collaborate to solve healthcare challenges that you and your healthcare organization are struggling with, then Next Wave Connect is the answer.
As the title states, I wholeheartedly believe that Next Wave Connect will be the next big thing in healthcare. It’s time to stop working in silos and get together to solve these problems. It saves time, it saves money, and ultimately, it saves lives.

I waited until I had something that I knew was worth sharing. I waited until I finished my book so I could tell the world how awesome it feels to finally have it completed and how much I really think it can help nurses who are struggling with technology.
So this big, long-winded, salute to all the awesome things that are going on at RNFMradio is really a plea to have you come listen to my appearance on the show Monday 10/21/13 at 9pm. And asked tons of awesome questions!
Thanks to the Internet, nurses have a enormous amount of information available to them at any given time. However, it can be difficult to sort through the mess and find content that is really valuable and worth reading. That’s where I come in! I take the time to find good content for you so you can spend your time reading, learning, and enjoying the best!
This round we have a diverse collection of fantastic content from Scrubs Magazine. We start with interview tips, have a little fun on Pinterest, and round it up with some serious health issues and concerns for nurses. Have fun!
Today I received a print copy of my book The Nerdy Nurse’s Guide to Technology. And while I was thrilled to finally have this book come to a fruition, I was not quite prepared for the swell of emotions that overcame me when I began to flip through the pages.
But then again, I’m not sure that any author is really ready for the first time we hold a copy of our book. I think of all the hard work that went into this book. Hard work that was not only mine but many on an editing and publishing team. And also the high hopes that we all have that the book will be a great success.
The Nerdy Nurse’s Guide to Technology provides the tools nurses need to improve their practices, further their careers, and solidify themselves as assets to their employers. Written with humor and easily digestible sections of information, this reference guide supplies nurses with the practical application tools they need to embrace technology and be successful.
Technology should be seen and used as an aide to delivering nursing care. If it is a barrier, then we need to break down those walls and make it useful for the care you give. Technology, like most things in life, becomes what you make of it. If you make it difficult and useless, then it will be difficult and useless. But if you make it prominent and valuable, then you might find that you not only experience increased satisfaction in your job performance but are a happier nurse overall.
