Working the system

Classes begin today.  This is my first semester in residence at the public health school which means in addition to the nursing courses I need to take to finish, I am taking a full course-load of public health.  I am also preparing for my thesis and my practicum.  So much to think about, but some [...]

Obstetrics in remote settings

I was giving a great gift from a wonderful friend.  She has volunteered with MSF for the last few years and so had two copies of their publication Obstetrics in remote settings.

HIV and Women’s Health

I don’t feel any great passion for working with HIV.  I have a passion for pregnant women. But I have to accept that to be effective in areas where HIV rates in women are high (which even includes groups of women here in Atlanta), I need to have a good working understanding of HIV treatment [...]

Helping Babies Breathe

Not as good on the public health front.  Doing the dual program has challenges, and one of them is that I [...]

Starting School and Blog Updates

Did you notice I moved the blog?  It shouldn’t be too big a deal, it was simply to make it easier to manage all the work I do now that school is starting –which is the exciting news I might add.  But now I need to do some clean up, because using the other system [...]

Five Semesters to Midwife

I’m pretty sure I had reported that I was accepted into the School of Nursing at Emory University for the Family Nurse Midwife program. It is a five semester program that will prepare me to be a baby-catcher, but will also prepare me to provide primary care to everyone from infant to elderly. Think family [...]
