Here are some new or newish posts of note on various nursing blogs:

At Nursetopia: “You Get What You Put In To Your Nursing Association.”

At Nursing Stories: “Memories of MICU,” a post about visiting a new state-of-the-art medical intensive care unit (MICU) and comparing it to one the author worked on in the 1970s.

At the American Nurses Association (ANA) blog called One Strong Voice: “Working With a New Graduate or Novice RN? If So, Be Mindful of Workplace Bullying.”

Episode six is now up at The Adventures of Nurse Niki, a newish blog written by Julianna Paradisi (her other blog is JParadisi RN). This blog is made up entirely of first-person episodes told by a fictional nurse named Niki. Each episode is short, detailed, and engaging, and it’s easy to keep up with it on a regular basis, or quickly catch up if you haven’t yet read any episodes.

At Digital Doorway: “Evolving as a Nurse: The Work of the Soul.” Here’s a brief excerpt:

“The evolution of a nurse and his or her career is a very individual experience, and this experience expresses the spirit, nature and personality of the nurse in question. And when soul is infused into that journey, the entire tenor of the journey is deeply and irrevocably changed.”

At Nursing Notes of Discord: “Failed Inspection.” I wasn’t familiar with this blog until I stumbled on it today. This was an intriguing post.

For something light and mostly visual, #WhatShouldWeCallNursing is a Tumblr blog that consists of captioned gifs.

One more thing: the blog known as Adventures of GuitarGirl RN seems to have come back to life, so we’ve put it back on the list at our nursing blogs page.

That’s it for an early August Monday!

  10. Thanks for the round-up! The ‘failed inspection’ post was terror inducing! Survey time can be very stressful.
