Nursing Conferences in Exotic Locales

by Tera Tuten on August 7, 2012

In a recent post, we looked at general medical conferences specifically for the attractiveness of their locations.

Now, we’ve got a look at nursing conferences you can attend in attractive locations.

Most of the meetings, workshops, and symposiums below are intended primarily for nurses, while some are also open to physicians and other medical practitioners as well as nursing staff.

What they all have in common is serious potential for fun after-sessions, after the conference, and maybe even an inspiring view out a window while you’re still on the job.

So grab your delegate bag, loosen that lanyard (so it’s pre-readied to be flung-off before the beach) and get ready to grab some good times after work at any of these 2012 nursing conferences with serious exotic locale potential: [click to continue…]

Career-Limiting Moves NOT to Make in a Hospital

by Tera Tuten on February 21, 2012

 

As evidenced by the drunken (and completely unnecessary) rant against her boss (who just happened to be behind her in line for the corporate party video-postcard) “career-limiting-moves” – or CLMs, according to the Urban Dictionary folks – such as the above are a sure-fire way to get… well…fired.

Such moves in hospitals can be up there with extreme cases of malpractice and ridiculous mistakes in surgery (which we could fill 10 blog entries with.)
