Fainting While Urinating

Have you ever experienced it or you know somebody that ever had such?

You get up from sleep in the day or night,seriously pressed and uncomfortable due to the feeling as if your bladder is going to burst in a few seconds if you didn't empty its contents.
You dash off to the toilet and begin to empty your bladder,then suddenly you black out and the only  thing you could remember afterwards was when you started to urinate.Every other thing that happened was a mystery.

Men In Nursing On The Increase

Any  observant person especially one who is in the medical or paramedical department  wherever there is a college or school of nursing would notice the trend.I was always asked the same question when i was in school regarding the increase of males in the profession that was seen as a female dominated place.
Some were even asking how i coped with all the females in the class.Recent studies show that the number of men entering careers in nursing is expected to rise over coming years.

How Does Social Media Affect Nurses?

We can easily say that within the last ten years social media has changed the way in which the world spreads information. Social media has touched every form of business and healthcare is no exception. Sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest have helped large and small hospital systems define their personalities and reach out to their patients in new ways.

Social media has positively enabled small and large hospital systems to reach out to their patients and communities in brand new ways. It is currently estimated that over 70% of nurses regularly use social media. 

That is a tremendous amount and cannot be disregarded. On one hand, social media has enabled nurses to connect with one another and share inspirational and educational material. On the other hand, social media has also created numerous concerns related to patient safety and patient privacy rights.
