No one at work knows about my blog, and I doubt that most of them know what a blog is. I have told some people that I have a "nursing related website," but no one has even been curious enough to ask me what it's called.

I use my iPhone at work and I've mentioned to people that I won it from a nursing website and even then, no one is curious enough to ask me what the website is. I've found that the vast majority of nurses are simply not interested in reading nursing related content on the web.

The lack of interest is kind of depressing in a way, but I am very glad to be a part of this nursing blog community. I guess it's quality over quanity.

There are a depressing number of people who want to leave their nursing career at the door of the hospital (or other workplace). I encounter people who think that all education and training should be done in work time, let alone people who would write or read a blog or visit a place like this.

Reading my blog is becoming the thing to do where I work. Have gotten many of them involved in helping me gather cool stuff for posts---photos, video, cool stories. It has made my blog 100 times more fun to do and a lot more interesting to read! Telling them all was one of the best decisions I have made.

I never post anything that I wouldn't be willing to read in front of my boss or my hospital's CEO. Then again, that don't like me anyway, so what the heck!

Today I was asked by the DON of our outpatient center about a patient complaint that she had received. When she described the situation I remembered it very well and thought, "OMG, I blogged about that!!!

I SO wanted to tell her about my blog but I didn't because it might have put either my job or my blog in jeopardy.

Here's the post I'm referring to:

Fortunately the complaint wasn't about me, it was about the way the other nurse addressed me when I was trying to help the patient.
