Nurse Blogger Award

This is so cool!  Thank you, fellow nurse blogger, Elizabeth Scala, for the nomination. I’m super honored!

Tag ! You’re it if you’re on the list below.  So here’s to passing along the nursing love and sharing the joy for my nursing career. And here are the rules:

Very Inspiring Blogger Award Rules

1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you. (Done, linked to Elizabeth Scala )

2. Post the award image to your page.

3. Share 7 facts about yourself.  Here are mine:


I’m a nurse’s nurse who works in acute care. My mission is to help new nurses and improve working conditions for all nurses. My background is bedside, management and education.

I’m a writer, speaker, blogger, subject matter expert, creative content developer, policy expert.  I also raise backyard chickens (urban farmer).

I lived in South Africa as a teen-ager, in Johannesburg and Phalaborwa in the Transvaal. My father was an engineer for Bechtel, and we relocated pretty much every two years. It was amazing to live in another culture, and it gave me an undying interest in culture.

I’m a serial hobbyist. Gardening, sewing, flower arranging, cooking, make-up artist, writing. I’m always passionately doing something or other

I love the smell of wet asphalt (city girl), garlic sauteeing in butter, rosemary pinched between my fingers

I hate traffic, and waiting in line and being put on hold. Maybe I’m impatient?

My guilty secret is reality shows. I will deny having watched every episode of Sister Wives.

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

In no particular order except stream of consciousness:

Now… your turn 🙂 This is fun!   What blogs do you recommend? Leave a comment below stating the nursing blogs you enjoy and feel free to share using the social media buttons. Enjoy these fellow nurse bloggers and thanks for reading.
