The latest edition of the Best In Nurse Blogs-my bi-weekly focus on the best writing by, for, or about Nurses!
Best In Nurse Blogs:
Barely keeping your head above water. I know all of you know exactly what I’m talking about.
That’s a pretty good description of the way things have been going at our household over the past few months. Helping both kids move, arranging and going to a family reunion weekend, a retreat involving my consulting job, keeping the medical practice going, and of course writing for this blog, a newspaper column, and doing a little freelance writing has just about made Dean a dull boy.
It affects my creativity when I start feeling like a scissor-kicking fiend just to be able to breath.
It may even make me a little irritable… nahh, not me…When I get these feelings I know it’s time for a break.
I may spend a little time today planning a getaway. Hmmm, let’s see- I need a comfortable bed for my poor old back, love the ocean, need good food in walking distance, a nice place to ride our bikes safely, and I’ll need connectivity so I can do a little writing every morning. I’m open to suggestions anyone????
Let’s get started with:
The Best In Nursing Blogs
Pregnancy Art/Jewelry is on display At Your Cervix.
Keith, at Digital Doorway, reviews a book about improving your compassion suggesting that compassion is a skill that can be learned and improved upon. Interesting concept.
Toronto Emerg discusses the sad case of another nurse contemplating hanging up her nursing career- sad, sad, story.
If you wanna see a few pictures of bad teeth and a discussion of correctional dental issues, check out Lorry’s latest post at Correctional Nurse.
A few questions answered about Nurse Practitionering (yep, I made that one up…) is at the Nurse Practitioner Place.
The Nerdy Nurse discusses the nurses’ uniform of the day, and yesterday…
New trends in healthcare is a series at Nurses Network.
Nancy discusses “living the dream” at In The Shadow Of The Steeple.
Moving is the topic at Not Nurse Ratched. Having just helped both my kids move in the past 2 months, I feel her pain…in my back, and shoulders, and knees. Waiting on cable people is the worst. How can you get away with making 4 or 8 hour windows for appointments in this day and age?
Looking at the picture is worth the ride over to Impacted Nurse. NG tubes….
Being nice to the addicts in the ER is the discussion at Crass Pollination. Sometimes it’s hard to dredge up empathy for those who abuse their bodies. But like all of us, they are dealing with demons, so a little grace can go a long way.
Kevin, as always, has a thoughtful discussion of nurses and wages going on at Innovative Nurse.
Anna over at icoachnurses has 9 tips for de-stressing-Good tips, some of which I am about to use.
Thanks, thanks, thanks for being a reader.
Please check out these great blogs, and leave a comment or two along the way. All of us writers need a kind word every now and then to keep us going.
How do you get your battery recharged when you feel burnout coming? What is your technique? Taking time off is sure less stressful if you aren’t having to put the cost on your charge card. It’s a lot harder to enjoy the beach or the mountains if you know you’re borrowing money at 18 or 28% to go.
Which is one of the reasons I do what I do. I want to help you obtain the financial freedom to take a vacation without pulling out the credit card. Keep your money questions coming!
Have a great week!
