  • Breast Cancer is More Than October

    As we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but why should it only be in October? We are supposed to support victims of cancer every single day. Highlight their struggles every single day. I myself have seen firsthand what cancer does to someone, their family, and their lives. And I have the world's respect for someone who can come ...

  • Forgive Others… You Deserve It

    In my previous post, I spoke about one of my learnings for helping the nursing profession grow more resilient and introduced the concept of forgiveness. I can tell you this is not an easy subject matter to discuss in the workplace or beyond. What I can also tell you is that the energy of being angry and judgmental wears on the individual, team and ...

  • Growing in Numbers

    Can anyone remember all the way back in nursing school how many males were in your class? I can remember, back in 1993; I was the only male in my CNA/ROP class. There were three males in my LVN program and five in my RN program. I think we can recall to the past generations that many gentlemen who entered into nursing school were faced with ...

  • Green Swimming Pools and Medicinal Hickey: The Surprise of Rio

    If you're a nurse, you spend an enormous amount of time explaining the unusual and uncommon events of everyday life, especially when those events might be concerning the health or safety of our Olympics team. This year, we were so busy focusing on mosquitoes and Brazil's ability to handle the crush of possible terrorism/mass casualties that we ...

  • Race and Nursing

    Racism has been increasingly present in the news lately. Whether you are behind the cause Black Lives Matter or All Lives Matter, nurses provide compassionate care and save lives of people of all races, religions, socioeconomic backgrounds, and genders. Cancer, heart disease, and diabetes do not discriminate and neither can we. Unfortunately, ...

  • Nurse, Heal Thy Spiritual Self

    Last month, I shared with you a very personal story that jump-started my quest to further understand why nurses are emotionally tired. I wanted to understand how today's environment spiritually impacts the practice of nursing. I dove into the research and literature like they were a cool pond on a hot August day. I researched with gusto, hungry ...

  • Use of Human Subjects in Research

    In response to controversial medical researches involving human subjects resulting in death or devastating effects among participants, several policies and guidelines were undertaken to ensure that human subjects who join in these kinds of research or experiments are protected. The scientific community and the modern society in general do not want ...

  • What it Means to be a Woman

    So as we all know August is International Women's Month. And this got me thinking about what it truly means to be a woman. What power do I actually have as a woman? I was blessed to be raised by a very strong and independent mother with a fierce strength and an unwavering love for her family and her children. She taught me to be strong, ...

  • When the Personal and Professional Realms Collide

    There is an interesting perspective a nurse (or a nurse's loved one) who is a patient has. First off, it's not easy to be a patient-it's especially not easy to be one when you are a nurse. It's even more difficult when you teach nurses how to take care of others as there are certain expectations of care that should be provided. So, naturally, when ...

  • Spirituality and Health Choices

    Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman are two economists devoted to answering the question, ''Why do people make the choices they do?'' They delineated several cognitive biases, such as framing effect, which attempted to explain a person's non-rational behavior. Tversky and Kahneman's theory was a giant leap forward over older theories which saw ...
