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.

The Nerdy Nurse’s Guide to Technology: The Book

The Nerdy Nurse's Guide to Technology Book

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.

House Hunting for a Georgia Nurse: Thrilled to be in a Buyer’s Market

With the current state of the economy, homes are more affordable now than ever. Houses that less than 5 years ago were selling for $100,000 are now less than half that. I am blessed to be looking for a home in a buyer’s market, but is bittersweet because the only reason I am getting such a great deal is because someone else lost their dream.
