More Blogs

I've got a pile of blogs here on my desk, and they aren't going to post themselves. :)

The NurseBlogs community is constantly growing - please welcome our new friends:

March of the Platypi: Fabulous ER stories from a guy who's right in the thick of it. Definately someone you'll want to have a link to.

The Drunken Lagomorph brings us the touching story "How I Learned the Difference Between Farts and Boners"

Manage This discusses nursing management and current trends. His posts have references! ;) Actually, this is one of the few blogs we have from the business end of nursing, and it's a pretty good read.

The University of Arizona College of Nursing has a blog. Normally, this wouldn't be very interesting, except that these nurses are getting their PhD's! (In the style of Wayne and Garth) Rock on, Dr. Nurse! These folks are already RNs, so the link will go under Nurses rather than Students.

Gypsy Cowgirl Thinks is another nurse-shutterbug with an assortment of absolutely lovely photos. I'm always surprised at the quality of pictures on some blogs, and the wonder of the internet that lets us share our personal stories and visions so easily.

Spelunk in the Trunk is a nice personal blog from a Houston, Texas RN. She certainly has a sense of humor!

The Lady With the Lamp - Not! is an NP from NYC who works in dialysis and pheresis. Interesting stories about working as a partner with MDs. She's been working in healthcare since she was 14 - wow!

Jet Set Janet: You've got to go take a look at this one. She's on some sort of world tour, and just leaving Saudi Arabia now. The culture differences she describes are mind boggling. I've got too much attitude to be able to put up with that. I'd probably end up in jail (seriously!). I haven't gotten too far back into her archives yet, but I will. The whole experience is amazing - be prepared to have some strong feelings.

Luxifer has more beautiful photography on her blog. She is a nurse from Montreal, Canada, and much of what she writes is in French - but you don't need to understand her words to appreciate the beauty of her pictures. I've been through the archives here, and they contain even more.

Nanner is a cat-loving Missouri RN who is new to blogging. Her aptly-named blog, Meow, has some cute pics of her cats.

Eric135 is a charge nurse on (I believe) a med/surg unit. He's also a foodie and a sci-fi lover, and is doing very well sticking with his diet. He's got a good combination of personal and work stories, and he's pretty funny. I like his post on Pain.

Keep on Bloggin'

I'm shocked to get added to your list of links...I rarely write about being a nurse on my blog, so I guess that you picked me up from commenting on other nurse blogs.

With all the new HIPPA regulations, I am pretty careful about what I post...but I do love being a nurse. It is a decision that I have never regretted.

I have gotten to do so many amazing things as a nurse. Plus, it supports my photography habit. (A habit that I picked up while working as a traveling nurse).
