Being admitted to the hospital can be a jarring experience. You start the day, living your normal routine, and before you know it you’re lying on a stretcher under intense fluorescent lights with people hovering over you, poking you with needles and talking in a language you’re not really familiar with. Sounds like a scene […]

I have helped many nurses discover blogging, learn more about blogging, and even encouraged some (like my friend Nurse Eye Roll) to come out of the anonymous blogging and social media closet. I’ve spent countless hours researching the skills, tools, and methods needed to be a successful blogger and have grown a site that attracts over 100,000 visitors every month.
