Nurse bloggers

I've noticed nga ubay-ubay na jud ang mga nursing students or nurses karon nga naga-blog. Sa ako lang nailhan daghan na... there must be countless others out there - nursing students or nurses already practicing their profession - blogging, writing about their experience... I should place a separate category of links for these bloggers in this blog one of these days...

I remember a week or so ago I searched Google for nurse bloggers and I found this very interesting blog. It's by a nursing student from UK. Too bad the blog is not being updated anymore, but he (or she) posted some links of other nurse bloggers. I haven't got the time to check them out, though.

I think more nurses and nursing students should write about their experience/s. There is much to be learned from our experiences in the hospitals and in our classrooms, and there's much that we are not sharing with others. The process of becoming a nurse is quite an interesting journey, filled with hardships, struggles, anxieties, dread, but also, of course, rewards, joy, and personal fulfillment. A lot of things happen to us and inside us as nursing students during those four years, and we don't usually tell others about it. We are silent, or confide only in our classmates or close friends. We undergo change, or better yet, a "metamorphosis", in the same manner caterpillars metamorphose into beautiful butterflies. That is something worthy to be told. From clueless freshmen we slowly become, in the next years, responsible, skilled, knowledgeable, and smart professionals. As bloggers we should write about the significant things that happen to us and within us as we go along this great journey... :)

i write about my experiences. however, i keep in mind that we are not supposed to give out the personal names of our patients. the principle of privacy. yet sometimes, too, people can't relate to the medical terms we use. and it's quite hard to explain in lay man's terms the "word salad" we eat. hehe. chill! viva nightingale!
