An award as a Nurse Blogger

I’ve been nominated for the Nurse Blogger Award by my good friend and inaugural guest of our The Change of Shift Podcast, Nurse Beth Hawkes.


Thank you Beth! I remember how these awards were all the rage back during the early days of my blogging career. Each time, I’m humbled and thankful to be nominated by a fellow Nurse Blogger who I consider to be a trusted and valued resource in my amazing profession.

But… there’s also this..

[Sorry Beth, I had to]

Here are the rules:

1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you. ✔

2. Post the award image to your page. ✔

3. Share 7 facts about yourself. ✔

4.  Finally, nominate 15 other blogs and inform them about it. ✔

Without further adieu, 7 facts about me (that you may not know):

  1. I was born in a blizzard on the Ides of March
  2. I was engaged once (almost twice) before I met and married my beautiful wife
  3. In high school I had numerous “nick names”. So many, that my girlfriend at the time listed all of them on a piece of paper. I lost count after 15.
  4. I sprained my ankle so severely in high school that the doctor told me, “You’re gonna wish you broke that thing”.
  5. I’m a closet hoarder. I have a difficult time throwing things away.
  6. I don’t attend funerals.
  7. I’m a firm believer in the ‘No Asshole Rule’

15 other blogs… whew.. this will be a toughie. Due to time constraints I’m just going to list their websites:


Whew… I honestly had to go searching a bit to squeeze out 15. That’s saying something for me. Apparently I need to up my blog reading game. Anyone have any good Nurse blogs they could suggest?

Thanks again Beth! This was fun.
