Meow Meow Meow & Nursing

3. Keiko Lynn shows some tattoos- I looooove tattoos. One time I came across this beautiful photo of a tattoo. I wish I saved it. Across the shoulder blades and down the spine was Psalms 23:4 "...though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil...". Beauty.  I have this desire to have my Japanese kanji name on my left shoulder blade. I am 99% sure I will never get it... but there's always that 1% that hopes. 

4. I've been meaning to blog about this for awhile but totally forgot. I was flipping the Canadian Nurse Journal and there was a very interesting article about nursing blogs! Surprisingly... I didn't know these existed. 

Silversides, A. (2012, January 12). Blogging the nursing life. Canadian Nurse, 108(1), p.22-27.

Here are some nursing blogs she recommends (new reading material hooray!). I really like how there's an array of different nursing blogs: 

ORCRN-  Exploring a life shaped by oncology nursing
-atyourcervix- the musings, rantings, and opinions of a labor and delivery nurse...on her path to be a nurse-midwife
Nursestory- blog about nursing, NP's, and health care
Emergiblog- the life and times of an ER nurse
nurseratchedsplace - a psychiatric nursing blog
head-nurse- brain on top, spine down the back (a neurology blog)

Also, I started keeping a list of things I learned in nursing school. I'll post this on my blog at the end of my program. While roaming the internet, I came across an interesting blog called Iamanursingstudent. She no longer blogs but I found it interesting to read through her entries. When she wrote her NCLEX, they scanned her fingerprints! So high tech.

  1. There are blogs for everything, so nursing blogs don't surprise me, but it's fun to find a blog that speaks to you :)
