We can’t thank you enough for your support of Nurse Talk. We’ve had all kinds of fun and visited with some amazing people. We covered the Madison, Wisconsin rallies, talked with nurses while they marched on Wall Street, Main Street and every street in between.

We laughed our way through some of the more serious times with COMEDIAN Lynn Ruth Miller; RN, MSN and humorist Karyn Buxman; RN, MSN Hob Osterlund, creator of the Chuckle Channel; and the singing RN Anesthetists, The Laryngospasms.

And then there were our attempts to laugh with people not at them (sort of) in our random acts of laughter segment we call, “Is Anybody Out There Laughing?”

We are all so very grateful for our listeners, supporters and friends. Especially National Nurses United and the Massachusetts Nurses Association for their partnership and for being fearless advocates for all of us.

To our friends at Nurse Together, all of our great bloggers and Facebook fans and finally to all who make Nurse Talk happen, Casey Hobbs, June Miller, Dan Grady, our interns, and last but not least, Tonia McCallum who makes me look like I know what I’m doing!

ON THE SHOW this week, Dan got run over by a reindeer, so we are airing last week’s wildly popular show again. Who says there are no second chances? Listen to RN Jean Ross, co-president of National Nurses United, The Yoga Nurse, The Teen Doctor and our research on under-the-radar nurse behavior. Read more about this show here and look for all new shows in the new year…and a great line-up of topics and guests.

We leave you with a teaser from a holiday story on our blog by Nurse Talk contributor RN Bobbi McCarthy.

‘Twas the night before Christmas
and the nurse is at work.
Many a creature is stirring, including a jerk.
All the IV’s are hung by their poles with care
In hopes that 7am would soon be there…

Get the whole thing here. Its a kick!
