For those of you who care to venture to our website blog—I encourage you to read the entries written by Barbara Taylor Vaughan. Barbara is 89 and in the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s. She started a Facebook page to help chronicle her illness and put a face on Alzheimer’s. Barbara hopes educating others will inspire them to volunteer to help ease the suffering of those with the disease, families, caregivers.

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.

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.

Coming Up on Nurse Talk: Rally Britain! Learning to Speak Teen. Nurse Behavior Revealed. Yoga Nurse Heals.

The Show is jam-packed this week. There is something for everyone, so make time to join us!

A segment every nurse needs, brought to you in partnership with Nurse, Annette Tersigni RN, The Yoga Nurse, and founder of Yoga Nursing. Nurses are often the last to realize the toll stress is taking on them and to take the time to do something about it. She has some great ideas on how the restorative principles of yoga can empower you to continue serving as the nurse hero that you are.

We’ll talk with RN Jean Ross, co-president of National Nurses United. Jean is a frequent guest on Nurse Talk and she updates us on recent U.S. rallies organized by nurses to support nurse counterparts in Great Britain.

She has some good ideas about what to do when you are about to cancel Christmas.
