This is an award given by bloggers to fellow bloggers who inspire them and who are motivated to make the blogosphere a beautiful place.
The award asks us to honor and learn more about the person behind the blog. The Nursing Site Blog was nominated by a fellow Blogger and nurse colleague Anne Llewellyn who's fabulous blog is Nurse Advocate. You have to check it out!!!!
The rules that accompany this award:
The first rule is that I am to share 7 facts about myself. Here they are:
- I am married to my best friend Tim who is my rock, my north and my soulmate! We met in high school but didn't date until midway through college.
- I have 3 wonderful adult children who have all found their soulmates. And I have 2 beautiful granddaughters.
- I have been a nurse since 1975 and after 2 years of hospital med/surg, I have spent my entire career in home health and hospice.
- I love musicals and all forms of dance. I dreamed of being a Rockette but I wasn't tall enough. I was originally a dance major in college until an injury ended that and I decided to opt for a career in nursing. I'm glad I did.
- Baseball is my passion. I was heartbroken at 11 when the boy down the street informed me I could NEVER be a professional baseball player because I was a girl! It didn't spoil my love for the game. Minor league baseball was my first love in Denver and since 1967 I have bled Dodger Blue. (I love football too--- GO BRONCOS!!)
- I just published my 7th book, Exploring the Home Health Care Experience, a guide to transitioning to this career path for nurses, therapists, social workers and nursing aides.
- I was the last Guide to Nursing at About.com which really launched my writing career.
