Change of Shift: A check up with your nurses

Change of Shift is up over at Emergiblog. A new blog, The Nursing Student Chronicles, caught my eye. How the next generation of healthcare providers harnesses the power of social media may say a lot about what providing and receiving healthcare will look like in the future.

I just can't picture a 22 year old--who, thanks to Guitar Hero, can play the riffs in "Dream On" better than Joe Perry--entering multiple passwords, then clicking on 8 screens to release a box of Depends from a med-surg supply room.

And you should definitely check out the student's post if you're worried that the next generation doesn't bring full hearts and the ability to see the big picture. Rock on!
