Texas Coordinating Board Meeting Blog

The Texas Coordinating Board held the in person meeting Saturday June 16th in Round Rock, Texas.  Many of us met in person for the first time.  I brought everyone an AADE shirt so we would match in the picture. 

One of the issues discussed was starting a blog for our CB.  Since I am already a blogger for AADE, I volunteered to write a blog about writing a blog for our CB.  I started by reading John Tyler’s article in the June 2012 Volunteer Leader Newsletter “Which is Which: Announcements, Discussions, and Blogs”.  I thought to myself it would be no problem since I have learned to post announcements and discussions on My AADE Network.  I soon realized I did not have options to load a blog or upload pictures.  I thought I had navigated the site as much as anyone could but I was surprised to find more links.

John Tyler emailed me the steps on how to create a blog on My AADE Network.  If you can read this under the blog section, then I guess I succeeded at writing the first Texas CB blog in My AADE Network.

Hello AADEs, 

My name is Linda Sifuentes a new member of AADE from the Austin,TX. I have 17 years experience working as a nurse in Texas and proud of it.  Currently, I work as an emergency nurse and clinic health coach nurse at a geriatric practice.  In addition, I am pursing my nurse practitioner. I have the priviledge of working with a large Hispanic population who have diabetes. It is a challenge but an over all blessing to make a difference one patient at a time.   I have enjoyed reading your website. I look forward to learning about all your resources available and connecting with local members.
