I am honored to be included on a list for 25 Outstanding Medical Blogs By Nurses created by QuickMed. Many of the nurses on this list are my friends and I admire their work online. A few of them I’ve even had the pleasure to meet in real life!
I had no idea when I started blogging that I would be able to turn into a part time income. I had not even began to think about the fact that if I was dedicated to it, and made a leap, that I could potentially blog full time one day. I could replace my entire income with blogging, if I wanted. I know how to do it. I know others that have done it. But it just requires so much time, and like most of us, I just don’t have a whole lot of it.
We’re all busy.

There was a time when I my constant tinkering and tweaking broke my blog more often than I’d like to admit. Just as Emergiblog and Nurse Ratched’s Place about how I sat at Blog World Expo for 2 hours fixing my blog after I broke it. Two hours of precious blog world time wasted digging [...]

Just like any juvenile, there are potentials from success and failures. There are potentials for attention seeking behaviors in either the positive or negative light. Depending on the feedback they get, will often determine the type of behavior they express.
Our healthcare social media teenager has the potential to go in one of many directions right now.
There is such huge potential that exist. There is such a great power and vigor that could be molded and manipulated. You see, there’s something amazing and wonderful hidden. It’s waiting to be guided and lead in the right direction to make a positive impact on the world. You can see a slight glimmer of greatness. A glint of hope and excitement.
By now you’ve hopefully heard the buzz among the nursing blogosphere and the social media community about Amanda Trujillo, the registered nurse who was fired by Banner Health after educating her patient on hospice options. Banner Health also took action again Ms. Trujillo’s nursing license and she has been unable to practice nursing for the past 10 minutes.
