The Royal Baby and Dixon Has Two Moms…
Well, Casey and Shayne are no different than the millions of others who were, well, mildly interested in the birth of the Royal Baby. It’s old news now, but Shayne couldn’t help but wonder how it feels to be born and immediately have money, a job, a title and lots of attention. But all is not lost for Shayne and his family! Here’s a hint from the our show coming up:
“Casey, it must be nice to be born and already have money and a job. No resume, no experience—just a bloodline. On another note our family had some good news at the same time—but of course it wasn’t front-page news.”
Casey: “Oh, what’s that Shayne”?
Shayne: “Casey, on the very same day the Royal Baby was born, my niece in Oklahoma, Karla Sue Mason, had a bouncing baby girl, weighing 10 pounds and 8 ounces.”
Casey: “Does she have a job yet? Maybe she could follow in your footsteps and be a nurse? What did they name her?”
Casey: “Oh that’s a—well, an interesting name. Dixon Mason? Lovely—she could almost join the ranks of Blanket Jackson, North West, and Moon Unit Zappa. Well we wish both babies and their moms and dads well.”
Shayne: “Dixon has two moms. I just wanted to say that. Modern family, Casey, modern family!”
Victory for Nurses in Northern California!
…AND a victory for nurses across the country!
Last week, a federal administrative law judge with the National Labor Relations Board handed nurses a victory, finding Sutter Bay East Hospitals in the San Francisco Bay Area engaged in illegal “unfair labor practices” when it unilaterally cut paid sick leave and eliminated all paid healthcare coverage for RNs who work less than 30 hours per week, affecting hundreds of nurses and their families.

Myth-ectomy. It’s coming! Congress tried to stop it thirty-seven times! The Affordable Care Act is on track and headed for the station and you need to know the FACTS. Regardless of your political persuasion, the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is a reality and it is […]
Fast Food…or Maybe Not Fast Enough? Greetings and good wishes from our house to yours! The nurses are in this week with a new show. Casey and Shayne are beside themselves (as I am sure every 911 operator in the country is) listening to this […]
Best of Nurse Talk: Doctors Prefer Camels. Global Nurse Movement. Psychiatrist and the Proctologist. ACA Myth-ectomy.
We are hard at work retooling our show, our website, and our figures, during our quicky summer vacay. So we are rewinding to a great show we aired last month…worth a double listen!
Doctors Prefer Camels
In 1947, R.J. Reynolds commissioned a survey among more than 100,000 doctors, asking the key question, “What cigarette do YOU smoke, Doctor?” However, BEFORE the survey was sent out, all of those doctors received free samples of Camel cigarettes. Naturally, when the survey was taken, most of those doctors gave the answer Reynolds was expecting. In their radio and magazine advertising, their slogan was, “According to a nationwide survey, more doctors smoked CAMELS, than any other cigarette.”
The Psychiatrist and the Proctologist
Best friends graduated from medical school at the same time and decided that in spite of two different specialties, they would open a practice together to share office space… Find out what happens!
YES, we have officially declared summer vacation here at the Nurse Talk studio. But, we are not just eating potato salad, barbecued hamburgers, hot dogs and jello salad with banana’s in it. No, we are hard at work retooling our show, our website, and our figures. When our new shows return in September you will hear some great new features. Nurse Talk takes on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – the good, the bad and the ugly…and yes, there is a between, too. There is so much information out there that is mythical at best and crazy in its worst form. With our expert panel and our healthcare partners, each week we will discuss issues related to the ACA. Oh, and for our listeners who may be hoping ‘Obamacare’ will go away…we’ll let you know if that happens too.
Also, health and fitness expert Joanie Greggains will join us for a series of interviews with well-known health and wellness practitioners, authors and cutting edge holistic leaders.
Humor is always in the equation and that won’t change, and our new website will have interactive features so that you can chat with our hosts as we live stream the show.
So while we are away at our picnic, please enjoy a Best Of. Be safe, be happy, be healthy and keep laughing!

Ahhhh, technology! It’s a very good thing, but when are we going too far? Should ROBOTS replace doctors and nurses? Can they diagnose and treat patients? Well it’s already happening in some hospitals. Get the good, the bad, and the ugly on this emerging trend […]

Male Nurses…More Pay?? Oh my, what a lively discussion! An issue so important we have to play it again. Listen up: a recent census report shows the average male nurse earns almost $10,000 a year more than the average female nurse. Bobbi McCarthy, one of our […]
