Once a Nurse, Always a Nurse

Once a Nurse, Always a Nurse

There are SO many issues in healthcare that impact medical/nursing providers and patients alike, but each of them may not see the connections to themselves. This show will be a forum for nurses to tell stories about their own experiences, whether professional or family-focused and guests will inspire conversation on health and nursing-related topics. Issues will vary from communication in healthcare to current issues, such as nurse/patient ratios, dealing with conflict, how to create cooperative workplaces, speed-reading people, as nursing strikes and much more. Government policies are creating a major shift for all healthcare providers as well as their patients. We, as nurses, will be creating the future healthcare paradigms as we move forward, becoming a crucial part of the solutions. “Once a Nurse, Always a Nurse: Exploring the World of Nursing” is broadcast live every Monday at 10 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica’s Health and Wellness Channel....

This is a topic deeply personal and simultaneously National (not to mention International). Communication is something we all do from prenatal to our last breaths on this earth. Conflict is a given. If we are alive, we absolutely will face conflict. As near as I can tell, there have ALWAYS been bullies. Why is it that we simply don’t seem to get better at communicating with these people in bullying situations? That is SUCH a good q...

There just cannot be too many ways to describe self-care for nurses, since we tend to be so bad at doing self-care. I have had Education and Coaching experts, guru’s of meditation, breath work, nurses of all types, ages and backgrounds on the show to discuss this. What I have been wanting to do is talk to relatively new nurses and dig into what works to welcome them into the career and profession of nursing; what helps when they re...

Every day there are new stories of heroism about nurses—across the Country and around the World. Just NOT from Nurses. Media and the general population, now and in the past, really do NOT have a CLUE what nurses do. Is it because nurses are too busy, tired, burned out and in moral distress to tell their own incredible stories? Although healthcare and nursing are in the news thanks to COVID-19, when was the last time the expert bei...

One of the outcomes of the World Pandemic of COVID-19 is uncovering of all the cracks and deficits in our Public Health and Healthcare Systems in the USA that have been happening over many years. It is open to all eyes at this point that there is NO equity in our healthcare. The poor, black, brown, indigenous and immigrants receive the worst or NO care in our system. The wealthy receive much better care, but still when we look at...

Fear is a reaction, courage is a decision. These 8 powerful words are from my Guest, Joe Tye’s, new class, “Everyday Courage for Extraordinary Times.” Everything in our life--our successes, joys, mediocrity, losses, & failures can be traced back to decisions we have made along the way at critical moments. We are currently in a time of GREAT historic significance. The decisions EACH of us make (whether we SEE ourselves as people...

This week I had the opportunity to observe an EMT deliver a patient to the hospital room next to my mother’s room. When they brought the stretcher out they cleaned it right in front of me. Using a spray bottle and paper towels, they rapidly wiped over surfaces, missing large areas of the cart and equipment attached to the cart. It occurred to me that this act of “disinfecting” for COVID-19 is happening ALL over the Country and the ...

Nurses across the country are drowning from the overwhelm of COVID-19 patients, lack of PPE, lack of support from some of their hospitals/administrations/Federal/State/Local governments. They are even drowning from the waves of people wishing them well & calling them (S)Heros. They don’t feel like (S)Heros. They feel like they are striving to save patients, they have not even had time to meet before they die—1-4 per shift. They...

I was thrilled to learn about the DAISY Foundation, a remarkable organization that exclusively honors nurses for the incredible efforts they make daily. Bonnie & Mark Barnes wanted to keep the memory of Patrick Barnes alive in a unique way by awarding his nurses (and eventually nurses around the world) with a tangible, heartfelt recognition by their peers/patients. Bonnie & Mark just launched a book to tell the 20-year stor...

COVID-19 has uncovered horrendous deficiencies in many healthcare organizations in the USA. Among the MOST concerning, has been the blatant disrespect for nurses & other HC workers as they risk their lives caring for terminally ill patients, while being refused basic PPE & staffing support. Then they are threatened with loss of their jobs if they follow basic nursing policies. I knew this could NOT be the case everywhere in...
