Listen to JParadisiRN Interview on RNFMRadio!

 Keith Carlson (@NurseKeith) and Kevin Ross (@InnovativeNurse) invited me to guest on their internet radio show, RNFMRadio.com. In case you missed it, you can listen to the interview by clicking on this link. It was my second appearance on the show.
I had no idea Kevin is a Nurse Niki fan! We tried hard to avoid any spoilers, both for potential new readers, and for Keith, who’s only caught up to chapter 7.
Besides discussing The Adventures of Nurse Niki, the interview includes our thoughts on night shift, the attachment ICU nurses sometimes feel towards their patients or their families, Kevin’s love of daytime dramas, and me being asked to do CPR compressions in a strapless dress at a Christmas party. Oh, I read chapter 11, Beer for Breakfast from The Adventures of Nurse Niki on air too.
If you aren’t listening to RNFMRadio.com, you should. Keith and Kevin are not only entertaining, with an expansive choice of nurse guests; they provide a dynamic medium for the online nursing community to share news, ideas, and ventures in a collaborative spirit. If you’re not listening, you’re missing out!

The Adventures of Nurse Niki

Although a fictional character, Nurse Niki is a real nurse, and by that I mean she faces similar conflicts the rest of us do.  She’ll blog about the tensions between her personal and professional lives, among other things.

I’ve been blogging at JParadisiRN since 2009, and I still haven’t said everything I intend to say, so JParadisiRN blog remains status quo.

The Adventures of Nurse Niki is a work of fiction that hopefully rings true.
