For the past several years as Chief Nursing Officer I’ve had the wonderful task of handing out scholarship checks to our newest crop of nurse scholars. It’s a role I love – especially reviewing the essays each applicant submits describing why they want to be a nurse or how they’ve advanced the profession and their career plans. I always have such confidence in the future of nursing after seeing their commitment and passion.

Today I am filled with great emotion – I’m an Emergency Room nurse.  Not just any Emergency Room nurse, but one who works in one of California's busiest and largest emergency rooms at Community Regional Medical Center in downtown Fresno.

Ok folks, it is time to hit the hiking trails again! It was quite a summer with the major drought and much of California  on fire. Sadly, so many acres of wilderness went up in flames and with the smoke settling in the Valley, it didn't make for the best hiking conditions. With cooler temps on the way and fire crews getting a handle on the fires, things are looking good and clear for some hiking!  If given the opportunity, please take the time to thank our fellow fire fighters for risking their lives to protect and preserve what we love to enjoy and take for granted at times, our National Forest.

In January I posted a blog about New Year’s Resolutions and their success rate…ahhh…or in most cases their failure rate.  Remember those stats?  Let me refresh your memory: 75% of those polled lasted a week, 71% lasted two weeks, 64% will finish out the month of January, 46% will make it six months and only 8% will last the year.  So, how is yours coming along?  No worries if you have fallen off the wagon.  There are still a
