    Hey Jesse,
    Good luck with this blog. You were my clinical facilitator in my first hospital nursing clinical placement back in 2010 and I was inspired by your enthusiasm to pass on your knowledge and expertise. I have just started my Graduate RN program and have volunteered for a pilot research simulation project, which, at the moment, I don’t have any more details about except that it involves nursing graduates and medical students. I see you are a Simulation Educator so I was hoping you might pass on some tips or links that may guide me in preparing / participating in this type of project.

    Hi…I wanted to leave a personal message but i don’t see any contact info 🙂

    I chanced upon you online and i saw how passionate you are about nursing & healthcare.

    I just wanted to share online courses that might be of benefit to you or to someone you know so i hope you don’t mind 🙂

    The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (SA Branch) is currently promoting 2 online nursing courses.

    1) The Certificate IV Frontline Management:

    It is a nationally accredited Management program that focuses on specific roles for both Nurses & Midwives

    2) Advanced Diploma Of Nursing

    This is perfect if you are registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Board of Australia & hold HLT51612 Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled/Division 2 Nursing) or equivalent.

    Please feel free to check-out ANMFA’s official Facebook Page:

    it contains relevant information on health issues & activities or interests of the Federation, its members, & those in the sector.

    Thanks so much and I’m really hoping this would be of great value to you 🙂

    Much Love

    my name us Niki. I am an Emergency Department and Intensive Care Nurse in the UK…..

    I am trying to find a way of moving into a more pre hospital role somehow. I would like to sit the DiDipICM but need more pre hospital care experience. This is tricky being a hospital based Ed nurse. Any advise warmly and gratefully received…..

      Hi Cheryl,
      Major apologies in how long it took me to get back to you. There have been some pretty terminal issues with the LITFL servers and so the site has been down for a good while. I would love to hear your thoughts. I have sent you an email.
      Cheers from Jesse at injectable orange.

  • Darin Abbey

    Greetings Jesse
    I hope that this email finds you well.
    My name is Darin Abbey we chatted briefly at SMACC about the idea of collaborating on some simulation literature reviews for the injectable orange.
    If you are still keen to pursue this idea please let me know.
    For a taste of some of the writing and thinking that I do, here is a link to some blogs that I recently penned for a company that I teach with, and to an episode of The SGEM that we did last year:
    Nice run into you at the Chicago Art Institute. What an amazing place!
    Thank you for what you do.
    I look forward.
