More Bloggers

There have been quite a few new NP student/NP blogs that have recently sprung up and I highly recommend that you check them out. Over the last few years, there has been a lack of NP representation in the blogosphere (other than a handful of NP authored blogs). There are plenty of well written physician and RN blogs in existence so it is nice to hear the stories, messages and advice from the NP perspective. I try to keep my blogroll on the right hand side of this page updated with new and timely blogs. Here are just a few to check out:

  • Laura blogs over at Ask the Nurse Practitioner, http://askthenp.blogspot.com/, and gives patient-centric answers to some common questions and sets the record straight on some myths health myths.
  • Jeff blogs at NP Health Care - Nurse Practitioner Owned and Operated Practice, http://nphealthcare.blogspot.com/, and shares his (seemingly frustrating) instances of owning his own NP practice in Texas.
  • FNP Student blogs at Triumphs and Tribulations of a Student Nurse Practitioner,http://fnp2011.wordpress.com/, and shares her experiences on her road to becoming an NP.
  • Michael is a Physician Assistant and blogs over at Are you a Doctor?, http://physasst.blogspot.com/and offers his views on timely health topics from the PA perspective.
I encourage anyone with a story to start a blog. There are many untold experiences out there and blogging helps to get the message out and can even be therapeutic in a way. Be sure that patients can not be identified and update often!

(I've also connected with some awesome people on Twitter and have found additional blogs and stories to share. Follow me on Twitter @StephenNP).

Not a "blogger" but an NP with a point of view: http://www.americanprogress.org/experts/WhelanEllenMarie.html
