  • Small Talk Can be a Big Deal

    There are so many instances where small talk is practiced regularly in the various nursing units. Small talk is unescapable: in the elevator, in the lobby, in the café... everywhere. The real benefit to small talk isn't what's said; it's when relationships are built over time. If your shift starts at 0700, then chances are you are going to see ...

  • Data Mining and Analytics in Healthcare

    With use of the Internet increasing exponentially, the amount of data being processed has exploded. Nowadays, even the healthcare business, a world of its own, untouched by the IT phenomena one decade ago, is forced to embrace the Internet. Currently, customer behaviors and preferences, their medical information and  shopping patterns ...

  • 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 ...

  • To Hug or Not to Hug

    In nursing, I will venture a guess you have found yourself in a patient room hugging someone (patient or family member), because they needed that support. If you are a male-I'm going to venture another guess that in that SAME situation mentioned above, BEFORE you extended your arms, you found yourself wondering, ''Should I hug this person or ...

  • 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 ...
  • Medical Screening

     When comparing “non-claims” physicians with physicians who had suits filed against them, the average length of patient encounter time difference was only 3 minutes. The difference in length of visits had an independent effect in predicting the physicians’ claim status (1). This documented finding proves that it is not the length of ...

  • How to Find the Right Job for You

    No one wants their dream job to turn into a nightmare. My recruiting days were spent listening to NPs who were frustrated and wanted out of their current position. Salary and benefits weren't the problem; the problem was literally the workplace itself. They told me stories of toxic workplace cultures, horrendous work expectations and miserable ...

  • Healthcare Management

    The healthcare management world is filled with clinicians. Unlike the corporate environment where most are trained and obtain a management degree in business, the healthcare hierarchy is built on direct care providers. Though direct knowledge of healthcare is a huge asset, most managers, once they transition into this role, do not feel the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Full Practice Authority

    How much do you know about full practice authority (FPA)? As NPs, we have state and federal laws and regulations that govern our practice. As we prepare for fall elections and legislative sessions in the new year, we all need to consider our ability to practice to the full extent of our education and training. I live in Virginia. If you look at ...
