  • Mean Nurses, Where are Your Manners?

    Every day in our nursing career we meet a lot of diverse types of people. But handling different types of nurses at work can be a dismaying task. It can be very challenging working with lazy, difficult coworkers who don't pull their weight. If you have been in this profession for any length of time (22 years for me), you know who I am talking ...
  • Spiritual Thinking

    A spiritual writer once said that God is paradox. In healthcare, spirituality is the response to the demands made by multiple points of view. This is especially true when these points of view conflict. When faced with a point of view different than our own, fear is a natural reaction. Since fear cannot deal with complexity, our fearful reaction ...

  • Working with the Harried Doctor

    Most nurses have heard stories or experienced how unpleasant some patients or their families can be. How about the doctors they work with? Almost everyone in the medical industry has a story to tell about how doctors harass the nurses, insulting them and having screaming matches in the operating room. As nurses, we experience different types of ...
  • 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.

  • Life Doesn't Pause- My Return to Blogging

    My last blog was October 1, 2014.  Why the long hiatus?  I suppose it was the complexity of life. Jumping in head first into my first real nursing leadership role, I became involved in every quality project that I could find.  I spent my time drafting research and grant proposals, applying for graduate school, and leading ...

  • What’s on the Horizon for Nursing in 2016?

    After recently giving a presentation on Florence Nightingale, I mused on the changes nursing has seen through the ages. For example? In 1887, one rule for nurses stated that any nurse who smoked, used liquor in any form, got her hair done at a beauty shop or frequented a dance hall would ''give the director of nurses good reason to suspect her ...

  • HIMSS15 Nursing Informatics Survey: Implications for Education, Training and Culture Change

    Nursing informatics has come into own, according to the 2015 Impact of the Informatics Nurse Survey. Announced at HIMSS15 and supported by the HIMSS Nursing Informatics Community, the survey documents the impact of informatics nurses on health information technology (HIT), workflow and productivity. It also carries implications for nurse ...
  • Men in Nursing: A Diversity Solution

    By Sam Osei, RN In my opinion, I do not think the body of nursing has done enough to acknowledge the presence of males in the nursing profession in this 21st century. Low interest in nursing for men contributes to the lack of gender diversity in the profession. As a result, stereotype of nursing as a “female profession” persists. Men make ...

  • Nurse Turnover

    Nurse turnover is a complex phenomenon that directly affects patient outcomes and healthcare costs. When new graduate nurses accept new positions on or before one year of hire, the institution loses a significant amount of money that they invested in their training. This affects the bottom line (which equates to nurse-patient ratios), ...

  • Two Nursing Worlds that SHOULD Collide

    By Casey Hill, MSN, RN-BC, CEN, who is a nurse educator in Connecticut. Recently I attended a nursing orientation at a hospital, composed of both new graduates and experienced nurses. As a nurse educator, I enjoy being in this type of setting, seeing former students grow into their new role as a registered nurse.  Yet, like my ...
