Kim McAllister is the ‘mother’ and creator of the original “Change of Shift” blog carnival back in 2006 on her personal blog “Emergiblog.”

Our website, blog and podcast borrowed (with permission) the name from her original creation. Kim is one of the Nurse Blogger pioneers. She was responsible for sparking thousands of conversations and inspiring an even larger number of Nurses to start or continue blogging.

Kim decided to step away from blogging in August 2013 and the last Change of Shift blog post was in 2011. We asked Kim to join us to talk about her blogging journey as well as what she’s been up to since she ‘retired.’

On Friday, Kim was gracious enough to join us from her home in California after a night shift. During the podcast she picked up where she left off blogging and gave us another dose of wisdom and insight. Hopefully someday soon we will sweet talk her into guest posting here as we both miss her web presence very much.
Thanks for being a part of The Change of Shift.
Remember—Always check your own pulse first!
