Site/Podcast update

by Paul Bond on 18 October, 2011

After three plus years of providing free content and garnering multiple awards for both the blog and the show, I am taking a hiatus!
While I have loved working on the blog and producing a high quality show, the financial burdens of providing it for free, along with the CEU’s that have been available have taken their toll on me. I am going through some major life changes right now and that adds to the need to temporarily halt further production. I will, however be back in the near future with more content both here and as a podcast, so stay tuned!!
In the mean time, if you’re looking for high quality personal development and life or business coaching, please check out my other site at www.paulbond.com
I look forward to returning and moving Emergency Nursing Today forward soon!

Peace and God bless!

Vacation

Just wanted to let you all know I will be on vacation for the next week, so there will be no updates here. I’m also postponing the next episode of the show for at least a week. This again, is due to the timing of my vacation.

Have a great week or so and I’ll see you all when I get back!!!
