  • Nurse First, Manager Second

    Being a nursing manager these days, people automatically assume means being dressed in a suit with a lab coat, rarely venturing out to patient care areas and a having a nice big office. The biggest complaint that I hear is that managers forget about being nurses and are not clinically involved and lack clinical credibility. Reality check. I ...
  • 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 ...

  • Boundaries of Care

    As new nurses, we manage our careers carefully, knowing we might get attached to patients and families easily. Policy and procedure manuals warn us about boundaries.

  • The Awareness Wheel

    As I reflect over the past legislative session and more recently over my past week as I met with each of my bosses and collaborators as well as legislators and other elected officials, I thought I would share a helpful communication tool I learned while completing my DNP.

  • Are NPs & PAs Facing Burnout?

    I have been hearing the ''B'' word in relation to advanced practice more frequently lately and it's beginning to worry me. Not because burnout is new, it isn't, we have been talking about burnout for years, but usually in the context of how we can fill the void of physicians deciding to leave practice.

  • 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 ...

  • What is the Price of Safety?

    In today's healthcare environment, workers are being asked to do more with less. See more patients in less time with fewer resources is a common refrain. As reimbursements grow harder to come by, hospitals are tightening their purse strings and looking for more cost-cutting measures. Linda Boly, RN, an Oregon nurse with 34-years of experience, ...

  • Is BB8 in Your Future?

    Her name is Nadine. Developed by Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, this human-like, or humanoid, robot can reveal personality, mood and emotions. Nadine's creators believe that social robots like her will soon surface in homes, offices and other environments that face worker shortages.  But should nurses live in fear that ...
