FREE Web Seminar on Retirement for Nurses

A FREE web seminar on Planning for Retirement: A Guide for Nurses and Other Busy Women will be held next Thursday, July 29 at 2:0 PM EDT.

According to the sponsors, the US Department of Labor, EBSA, the Women's Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER) and the Center for American Nurses, "Planning for a secure retirement can be challenging for women. Women are twice as likely as men to live in or near poverty in old age, and many women who were never poor during their working years, will find themselves struggling to get by in retirement. The time to start planning for these years is now."

Troubles with Hosting

If you've been trying to access The Nursing Site, and even this blog over the last few days, I appologize for any issues.

I am setting up new hosting for The Nursing Site so that eventually it can be more efficient and I can update the site more easily. However, this is taking forever to accomplish!!!

Somehow the hosting folks have now lost my nameservers info for the blog too and so we're experiencing some intermittent troubles. Hopefully it will all resolve SOON!!! I'm soooo frustrated with it, and I'm sure you are too.

Thanks for hanging in there with me.

HAPPY 4th of July!!!!!
