Welcome to the Change of Shift (blog carnival). Sorry for my tardiness, this Episode is a few days late. I was in Vegas (no seriously I WAS in Las Vegas for a Nursing Conference).
For those of you who aren’t familiar with what the Change of Shift is (or was) or are not familiar with a Blog Carnival please check out the following link:
The reborn Change of Shift includes posts beyond just the blog article. Find a comfy seat, put on your reading glasses and sit back and relax. Welcome to the Change of Shift V6 E3.
From our friend, and fellow NP, Dr. Rachel Silva over at Accessible Healthcare Institute. She shares her a bit of her personal story on becoming a Nurse Practitioner and then dives into specific steps you can take to become one!
Fromover at ‘Nurse To Meet You’.
However, there are parts of nursing school that no one tells you about that I have very abruptly discovered
Theses were quite good.
From our good friend Nurse Beth over at Nurse Code. Nurse bullies come in all shapes and sizes and are in every aspect of your job, even your boss. Don’t just do nothing.
I found this article over at Allnurses.com, written by a blogger named Trissity.
I would leave every morning after a long and stressful shift in tears. I wasn’t good enough, or smart enough, or fast enough for this job. Doubt started creeping in about my life as a Med/Surg RN, and I begun to fear that maybe I wasn’t even as good at that job as I so arrogantly believed. There were many days during my orientation that I had to talk myself out of quitting. How could I be trusted with patients’ lives?
Talks about the progression a nurse makes from naive arrogance to experienced confidence.
Should nurses have an M&M (Morbidity & Mortality)? A conference traditionally intended for our Physician partners that involves peer reviews involving patient deaths to help identify and hopefully improve the quality of care that is given to patients.
I for one work in a facility where this conference is offered to the Nursing department and support it 100%
A great article from blogger and nursing student, Kristen Ponticelli. What was your reason for entering nursing school? Your reason for choosing the profession of Nursing?
Yes, a shameless plug here. Megan has accepted our invitation as a guest on our Podcast, stay tuned!!!
You’ll never view a Cell Phone the same again. You might even go so far as to make sure you’re cell phone is always on your person. Trust me.
I recently had an almost exact experience with a patient.
Jamie shares the new updates from the AHA concerning ECC and CPR guidelines. Take a look!
ZDogg at it again. Think … Alicia Keys and Jay Z.
Yes, it’s exactly what is sounds like. Just go read this one (snickering silently). The authors over at Gomer Blog never disappoint.
Thank you again to the author of the Tumblr #whatshouldwecallnursing
Well, that’s all she wrote gang!

I’ll be posting this blog carnival here as well as over at The Change of Shift. I’ll probably post it in both places for the next couple months until everything is up and running with my new website before this blog carnival finds its new home over there.
Until next month… have fun out there!
