Happy Spring

IMG_5330Happy spring from northern Sweden!  For many of us here, spring has shown itself through some of the most beautiful sun filled days.  While the cold remains and the forecast predicts snow, with help of lighter days and spring blooms we can begin to feel  winter behind us.

With spring comes a sense of renewal, planting of new thoughts and ideas, and perhaps setting new intentions in life.  With that in mind, I am looking to plant seeds of inspiration and intentions in some of you.  Is there anyone among you that would like to contribute to Neonurse?  I am looking for volunteers whose ideas align with the heart of this blog-inspiration, observations, and advice.  Are you an individual that loves to write?  Do you find inspiration in others?  Do you have advice you would like to share with fellow nurses?

I am  looking for the following:

  • Students Nurses
  • Specialty Nurses (Geriatric, Pediatric, ICU, NICU, O.B., Women’s Health, E.R,)
  • Travel Nurses
  • Retired Nurses
  • Disaster Relief Nurses
  • Nurse Volunteers (Operation Smile, Doctors Without Borders)

The intention is to have monthly or bimonthly contributors.  No previous experience is necessary.  Let’s chat ❤

Change is Good

IMG_4614Happy New Year, nurse friends!!  Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season ❤  2018 has already presented itself with some huge changes.  Mighty Nurse, the online nursing community that I have been writing for over the past couple years, has been absorbed by a much bigger company and as such will no longer be offering an online platform for nurses, nursing students, and other healthcare professionals.

It has been a wonderful experience where I was able to share my experience as a nurse with nearly one million readers every week.  Mighty Nurse gave me a platform and the freedom to write.  I will be forever grateful to Brock and everyone there for giving me the opportunity.

My first thought was what next?  Fear of change and the unknown can be paralyzing to some, but it is just the reality and evolution of life.  The best thing is to mourn it and move on.  Embrace change.  You never know what is just around the corner.

My hope is to continue offering you sound advice and tips for navigating life as a nurse both here and elsewhere.  You will still find me contributing to American Nurse Today, AWHONN, and The Gypsy Nurse.  I am always open to suggestions from any fellow bloggers out there as well.  Anyone know of a good next step in the online nursing community? Wishing you a happy and healthy new year!

Hugs,

Lori

A Nurse’s Plea to the People

american-nurse-today

Hi everyone!  I am super excited to share another piece featured in American Nurse Today.  American Nurse Today is the official journal for the American Nurses Association. They are the largest nursing union in the U.S. that continually fight for nurses’ rights and patient safety.  This piece is close to my heart.  It should be the right of every human being to have reasonable access to healthcare.  Thank you to my sweet sister and Aunt Donna for being the inspiration behind this. And thank you Sweden for caring for it’s residents. Heja Sverige!!
