  • Benefits of Low Nurse-to-Patient Ratios

    (Editor's note: This guest blog was written by Suzanne LeBeau, BSN, RN, CLNC.) We all know the scenario.

  • Paid to Get Dressed?

    Early last month two nurses at Aurora Medical Center filed a class action lawsuit against the Colorado facility's parent company, HealthOne of Denver, over the time it takes them to put on and take off their scrubs. They want to get paid to dress. The nurses are required to wear scrubs while on the job, but the hospital's policy states those ...

  • Validating Professional Nursing

    It’s about time. A guilty plea by Dr. Rolando Arafiles in a West Texas courtroom last week closed a painful chapter in the long career of Texas nurses Anne Mitchell, RN, and Vicki Galle, BSN, RN.

  • Does Your Résumé Say 'Non-Smoker'?

    ''Smokers Need Not Apply.'' That sign was theoretically hoisted by the human resources department at St. Luke's Hospital & Health Network in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley one year ago. The network consists of five hospitals and some 7,000 employees serving 46,000 patients annually. St. Luke's is the second largest employer in that region, so ...

  • March is National Women's History Month

    Did you know March is National Women’s History Month?  Designated by joint resolutions of the House and Senate and proclamations by five American presidents, it is an opportunity to honor and celebrate women's achievements throughout history.

    I recently edited a compelling article on physician-assisted suicide (PAS) written by Lisa Siminski, BSN, RN, CHPN, staff nurse, St. Luke's Hospice House, Bethlehem, PA.   In her report on PAS, Siminski points out straight away that the American Nurses Association Code of Ethics for Nurses ''clearly specifies that nurses ...

  • Sight, Sound & Smell

    My husband says we can't remember everything about a book or a movie or a vacation, so our minds fixate on the most vivid impression and that's what we remember. I just finished reading Nursing in the Storm: Voices from Hurricane Katrina by Denise Danna, DNS, RN, and Sandra E. Cordray, MA, MJ. I set the book down with strong impressions of ...
