Have you ever had a moment where you were pondering a problem when suddenly an announcer on the radio started to discuss some approaches to that very dilemma. My wife, Joan, who is more attuned to spiritual matters, was sewing at home when she suddenly had to jump into her car and hurry to the […]
The practice of nursing is guided by certain state education laws, rules, regulations, and the code of ethics. According to these, nurses are morally bound to care for and treat all patients regardless of disease entities, socio-economic status, cultural views, religion and sexual orientation, and so forth. Nurses are to care for all people. My nursing school motto was, “Amicus Humani Generis” which translated to be, “ Lover of the Human Race.” Wouldn’t it be ironic to go against the core of this statement?
When I think back on all the test strategy guides and NCLEX questions that I reviewed for the nursing boards, I can think of no single piece of literature that helped me more than Saunders Strategies for Test Success: Passing Nursing School and the NCLEX Exam.

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!
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.
