Does anyone have a nursing student blog?

  1. I think it would be cool to have a "day in the life of a nursing student" blog, or something like that. I'd love to read about what a nursing student goes through on a daily basis, to help prepare me for what my days will be like. I'd love to read more about what a typical clinical day is like for the nursing students, or what they do in skills lab, etc.

    Hmm ... interesting. I may be up for this. There are days I come home from clinical just about bursting at the seams, and some days that it might be therapeutic to just "debrief."

    I'm a total newbie about "blogging", though ... I'll have to do some research on this.

    I've actually asked a bunch of blogging friends how one goes about doing it. I might just start one myself.

    Do I live under a rock? I've never even heard of blogging... what is this exactly?

    Maybe this would be something we could do here in this forum? Like the "Teach A Student Something A Day" thread? Just a thought ...

    I'm a blogger - haven't been updating lately, but I'm starting nursing school this fall and have planned on using my journal for that purpose ("life of a student nurse/mom/etc")

    Of course, that won't help those of us who are starting this fall.. :chuckle

    The link is in my sig line - at livejournal, but I'm toying with the idea of getting my own domain/website up and running.

    I'm a blogger, but I don't think I'll have TIME to do a nursing blog. I barely have any time to keep up with it now.

    I started a live journal for that purpose. But since I don't start til August, it's nothing but me talking about my boring day. It will be exclusively about nursing school once August rolls around.

    All during nursing school, I thought, "Wouldn't it be nice is there was a website I could go to that vented about nursing school." And lo & behold, here it is. Too bad I found this site 3 months before I graduated. I had planned to write about my nursing school experiences, but time got away from me. I was always too worried about passing. I didn't give myself any free time. Now that I have time, I just about forgot all the stuff that happened.

    To think I probably could have made a small fortune and sold it in paperback :chuckle .
