This comparative focus group study explored nurses experiences and perceptions regarding parental participation in infant pain management in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). A total of 87 nurses from 7 NICUs in Finland, Sweden, and the United States participated in focus-group interviews (n = 25). Data were analyzed using deductive and inductive thematic analysis. Nurses experiences and perceptions varied considerably, from nurses being in control, to nurses sharing some control with parents, to nurse-parent collaboration in infant pain management. When nurses controlled pain management, parents were absent or passive. In these cases, the nurses believed this led to better pain control for infants and protected parents from emotional distress caused by infant pain. When nurses shared control with parents, they provided information and opportunities for participation. They believed parent participation was beneficial, even if it caused nurses or parents anxiety. When nurses collaborated ...
What is the aim of this review?. The aim of this Cochrane Review was to find out if changes made to nurse staffing in hospitals improve outcomes for patients or nurses, or have an impact on the cost of health care. Nurse staffing can refer to the number of nurses per patient, the mix of different types of nurses in a hospital unit, or models used to allocate nurses to patients in a hospital unit.. Key messages. The research relating to hospital nurse staffing is very limited and the findings should be treated with caution.. It is unlikely that adding nurses with advanced nursing skills (Nurse Practitioners (NPs)) or with expertise in a particular area of practice (Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNSs)) to hospital nurse staffing makes any difference to patient death rates. We cannot be sure what other effect it might have on patients, for example, if it reduces the time patients spend in hospital or the costs of patient care. We cannot be sure if changes to the way in which nurses are allocated to ...
by Julia Quinn-Szcesuil , Oct 27, 2015 , Asian-American and Pacific-Island Nurses, Black and African-American Nurses, Faculty Nurses, Hispanic and Latino Nurses, LGBT Nurses, Magazine, Men in Nursing, Nurse Recruitment, Nurses with Disabilities, Nursing Students , No one can say nursing is a stagnant profession. Even freshly minted grads can feel they are scrambling to keep up with new procedures, technologies, treatments, and processes. If youre a nurse, you might start to wonder what skills you will need to succeed and stay current in the coming years.. There are a few qualities shared by all successful nurses. Being an excellent multitasker, having empathy, and being nearly obsessed with details never failed a nurse. No matter what your specialty, your location, or your aspirations, experts agree that a few skills in your wheelhouse will not only advance your career, but also help you satisfy your goals of being the best nurse for your patients.. "The first thing you have to have if you want ...
Introduction. Short-term deployment of nurses is a temporary placement of nurses in a ward or other unit for a period of 12 hours or less. Short-term deployment of nurses is usually used within the hospital units in order to balance the numbers or to cover the shortage of staff in the different units. Often, nurses working in the intensive care unit (ICU) are required to help in other units if there is not enough staff, or their own unit is not busy. An ICU nurse is a professional and/or registered nurse who is trained, or is experienced in caring for the critically-ill patients in the ICUs. In this study, nurses work in the ICUs where short-term deployment is practiced. Short-term deployment of nurses from ICU may be to general wards that are not exactly the same as ICU as regards general layout, speciality area, patient care and general ward routine. The aim of deployment is to cover the shortage of nurses in the particular unit for a duty shift.. The nursing profession is experiencing a ...

Background. Cardiac surgical patients are distinguished by their potential for instability in the early postoperative period, highly invasive haemodynamic monitoring technologies and unique clinical presentations as a result of undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass. Little is known about nurses perceptions of assuming responsibility for such patients. An understanding of nurses perceptions may identify areas of practice that can be improved and assist in determining the adequacy of current decision supports.. Aim. The aim of this study was to describe critical care nurses perceptions of assuming responsibility for the nursing management of cardiac patients in the initial two-hour postoperative period.. Design. An exploratory descriptive study based on naturalistic decision-making.. Methods. Thirty-eight nurses were interviewed immediately following a two-hour observation of their clinical practice. Content analysis and a systematic thematic analysis process called Framework were used to analyse ...
NMCRS President and CEO Admiral Steve Abbot congratulates the Societys visiting nurses on their vital and compassionate work. In honor of National Nurses Week 2016, we will be featuring one of our wonderful nurses on our blog each day next week. Read their stories and celebrate them-and all of our nurses, past and present-with us. May 2016. Dear Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Visiting Nurses,. Im pleased to publicly acknowledge and celebrate the enduring dedication and compassion of the Societys visiting nurses. As the 2016 National Nurses Week festivities take place, its entirely fitting to reflect upon the significant contributions youve made to ensure the health and welfare of generations of Navy and Marine Corps service members and families stationed around the globe.. As heath care professionals, your compassion, breadth of knowledge, and access to valuable referral sources markedly improves client access to health care, supportive networks, and community services. Further, your ...
My world, in geriatric care management, primarily consists of interacting with many health care technicians, non-degree workers, and varied professionals. So, saying this another way, most of my contacts are not nurses. I can tell you, more than weekly, I must explain to those in the field of social and care-giving support, how beneficial it is to have a nurse on the team or committee for decision making. I still get surprised that family is often unaware that a trained and registered nurse is not a part of the team when very serious medical choices are being reviewed for their loved one. A nurse on the health care team is a natural advocate for the patient.. It is true, and is what I was taught, that the nurse is the last line of deffense (often) for a patient in a facility (or elsewhere). Nurses, know when to contact physicians when there is a concern, check physician orders after they are written, call for questions, order the medication (if needed) from the pharmacy, and verify that it has ...
Cruise notes that many vulnerable people lack the resources that allow them to manage their health effectively, and nurses should be prepared to meet these patients right where they are, without judgment.. "They may have low literacy, live in poverty, live in environments that are polluted, run down, or crime-ridden; and work in jobs with low pay and dangerous conditions," says Cruise. "People in these situations will pick up on a disapproving attitude by the nurse and shut down, shut the nurse out, and be less likely to follow his or her health care directions. Nurses should adopt a caring approach. While not condoning negative or criminal behaviors, accepting clients as they are and demonstrating concern for their health and well-being are more likely to motivate them to listen to the nurses advice and make positive changes.". Jan Jones-Schenk, national director of Western Governors Universitys (WGU) College of Health Professions and chief nursing officer for WGU, encourages nurses working ...
Labor and delivery nurses have the same general skill set as all registered nurses, but also need some additional specific skills for the obstetric specialty.. Medical Skills and Knowledge: Nurses need to have detailed medical knowledge from an accredited educational program. Labor and delivery nurses also need to have additional knowledge of obstetrics, gynecology, and childbirth in general.. Bedside Manner: Labor and delivery nurses work with patients in very vulnerable and high-stress situations, so a good bedside manner (including empathy and patience) is essential.. Problem Solving Skills: Because of the high stakes of working with laboring and delivering patients, these nurses need to be prepared for everything that can possibly go wrong-and be able to troubleshoot or have a plan in place for things that cant be anticipated. Labor and delivery nurses are responsible for monitoring patients through every stage of childbirth, helping to ensure safety at every stage.. Communication Skills: ...
The study is a part of The International Closeness Survey in the SCENE group who studies how the cultures of neonatal units (NICU) promote or hinder parent-infant physical and emotional closeness. In this study, parents perception of received staff support and nurses perception of given nurse support were compared between a Family Centred Care (FCC) unit and a traditional open-bay NICU in Norway. Thirty families with infants born before 35 weeks of gestational age were included in both units. Every nurse working at infant bedside (n = 62 + 67) participated in to the study for 3-month period. Parents responded to one out nine potential randomised questions about staff support sent as an SMS message to their mobile phone every evening. Nurses responded to corresponding questions via a web page on how they perceived the support they provided. The nurses evaluation on given parent support did not differ between the units. In the FCC unit, the nurses reported highest satisfaction with their own ...
From a patients point of view, and one that has experienced several poorly trained nurses(YES NURSES) I have been yelled at ridiculed and even had treatments with held from me, because I refused to take insults and even foul comments. I blame the training faculty for teaching new nurses that they are incharge and not the patient. That is ok for them to threaten a patient, even unto physical abuse if necessary to make them do what they want to do to the patient. So in my own opinion it is the older nurses with university degrees that teach these new nurses their behavior. Compassion and caring are out the window. I have seen few nurses just paycheck collectors on duty. Unless the good nurses are willing to train the new ones in the proper care of patients it will only get worse. Aides and assistants are only as good as they are trained. Yes the hospitals are mostly to blame for the poor training because they just want someone to do the running as cheap as they can get. They rush the training to ...
Nurses are suitable candidates for various volunteer roles within organizations - those requiring their professional license and those roles that do not. However, it is important that the volunteer role be clearly defined. Whether the role requires the nurse to perform functions defined under a nursing license will have implications for liability purposes.. If you plan to place a nurse in a role that does not require a nursing license, then the nurse will not need any liability coverage outside that of any normal volunteer. However, if you enlist a nurse to perform a nursing function which falls under the scope of practice of a nursing license, there are additional conditions to consider. Nurses must only perform functions that are designated under their Nursing Practice Act and must abide by the statues regulating the practice of professional nursing by the board in their state. They must be aware of the liability coverage provided to them in any specific situation by the organization for which ...

Each nurse has that potential within him/her to become a good nurse leader. You dont really have to occupy the highest position for you to be called a nurse leader. You can be a leader in your own way. As a nurse, you manage other members of the healthcare team, you cause others to act, and you facilitate positive outcomes. But how does one become more effective? What makes a good nurse leader?. Has high regard for others. A good leader sees the best in the people around them. Instead of looking down on colleagues and other members of the team, he/she has a way of making others feel good about themselves. Always treat your colleagues with respect.. Has adequate knowledge and skills. For one to be a good nurse leader, he/she must first possess necessary knowledge and skills and feels confident in that knowledge. Leaders have a sense of what is right and keep that at the heart of everything they do.. An inspiration to others and encourages them to do their best. As a nurse leader, it is important ...
Forty years of the Nurses Health Study: An evidence goldmine with a long-lasting legacy . It started in 1976 as an investigation into the potential health consequences of oral contraceptives, but the long-running Nurses Health Study has yielded increasingly greater benefits to scientific knowledge of health and disease, according to a paper published today in the journal Public Health Research & Practice.
The general aim was, within psychiatric inpatient care, to explore patient and staff perceptions with regard to medication administration and locked entrance doors. In Study I, medication administration was illuminated according to a mini-ethnographic approach. Nurses and voluntarily admitted patients were observed and interviewed. Two central categories of patient and nurse experiences were identified, get control and leave control. In Study II, patients and nurses were interviewed about patient experiences of forced medication. Identified experiences were related to the disease, being forcibly medicated, and the drug. In Study III, the frequency of and reasons for locked entrance doors on Swedish psychiatric inpatient wards were investigated. Seventy three per cent of the doors were locked on a specific day. According to ward managers, doors were most often locked in order to prevent patients from escaping, provide security and safety, and because legalisation. In Study IV/V, voluntarily ...
The literature and practice show that many professional nurses feel emotionally overloaded and are experiencing job dissatisfaction, which often results in them leaving the profession. Paradoxically, some nurses choose to remain in nursing and survive, cope and even thrive despite their unique workplace adversities. It is, however, not known what the prevalence of resilience amongst nurses is, and what influence working in private versus public contexts has on this resilience. The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of resilience in a group of professional nurses, to determine whether private versus public contexts played a role in nurses' resilience, and to obtain an indication of participants' views of their profession and resilience therein. A cross-sectional survey design was used where professional nurses (N = 312) working in public and private hospitals in South Africa voluntarily completed measures of psycho-social well-being as indicators of their degree of resilience.

Aim: The overall aim of the present thesis was to describe and examine primary care nurses´ self-reports on training, use and performance as well as experiences and actual performance of MI.. Method: One qualitative and three quantitative studies were conducted among primary care nurses. A study-specific questionnaire was sent to 980 primary care nurses and 673 (69%) responded (Study I). Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 20 MI trained primary care nurses (Study II). MI sessions between 12 (Study III) respective 23 (Study IV) primary care nurses and patients (total 32 respective 50 sessions) were audio-recorded. Data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis, Motivational Interviewing Integrity Code, Motivational Interviewing Sequential Code for Observing Process Exchanges and statistical analysis.. Results: The findings showed that primary care nurses reported and experienced lack of training in MI and lack of prerequisites for using MI (Study I-II), while training, ...
In International Journal of Nursing Studies, Jane Ball and colleagues, including Linda Aiken, examine if missed nursing care explains the observed association between nurse staffing levels and mortality. Previous research has shown that higher postoperative mortality rates are associated with lower nurse staffing levels. When nurse staffing levels are lower, there is a higher incidence of necessary but missed nursing care. The authors collected data from 422,730 patients from 300 general acute hospitals, and administered surveys to 26,516 registered nurses to understand staffing and missed care measures.. They find that every one patient added to a nurses workload is associated with a seven percent increase in the odds of 30-day mortality, and a 10 percent increase in missed nursing care is associated with a 16 percent increase in the odds of 30-day mortality. Statistical analyses show an increase between nurse staffing and missed care, and a subsequent association between missed care and ...
The Working Hours of Hospital Staff Nurses and Patient Safety," published in Health Affairs, demonstrated that nurses working mandatory overtime are three times more likely to make a medical error.. Background on Bargaining. BFMC nurses have been bargaining with Baystate since November 2016. Nurses have voted 93 percent to authorize a one-day strike and filed seven unfair labor practice charges against Baystate Franklin with the National Labor Relations Board. The strike authorization vote gives the MNA BFMC Bargaining Committee the authority to call a one-day strike. Bargaining is over a new contract to replace the agreement that was scheduled to expire Dec. 31, 2016. A federal mediator joined the bargaining process in February. For more details, including the letters to the president, NLRB charges and hospital schedules, mandatory overtime reports and text messages showing a pattern of BFMC not having enough nurses for its patients, please contact Joe Markman at 781-571-8175 or ...
I am a university educated registered nurse. We had a hell of a lot of hands on practice as well as our academic courses. The only people who say that you dont need a brain or an education to be an RN are the people who do not have any direct experience of nursing in acute care on todays wards. I have yet to meet a nurse who thinks that she is above providing basic care. I work with nurses who are completely unable to provide basic care due to ward conditions. I have lived and worked in 3 countries and have seen more similarities than differences. I have been a qualified nurse for nearly 15 years. I never used to use foul language until working on the wards got to me. Its a mess everywhere, not just the NHS. Hospital management is slashing the numbers of staff on the ward whilst filling us up with more patients than we can handle... patients who are increasingly frail. After an 8-14 hour shift without stopping once we have still barely scratched the surface of being able to do what we need to ...
The sample studied had 3,229 nurses, which corresponds to 82.7% of the total eligible (n = 3,904). The losses are due to refusals (n = 478) and nurses that were not located in the hospitals over two months (n = 128). Of the sample studied, 2,818 (87.3%) were female.. The female group had an average age of 39.7 years (SD = 9.9 years). Approximately 55.7% self-reported as white; 55.9% were married or had a common-law marriage; and, 75.9% had a graduate degree. As for income, 40% of the female nurses were classified in the group corresponding to the per capita income of more than R$2,300.00. The average time spent with household chores was 21 hours per week, while average working hours was 55.1 hours per week (SD = 20.9 hours). Almost 50% of the nurses worked in night shifts and approximately 2/3 worked in two or more locations. As for the aspects related to health, 7.1% reported having poor or very poor health. Approximately half of the participants were overweight and 23.7% were smokers or former ...

Introduction. Introduction The NHS is a massive organisation employing over 1.5 million employees. The NHS employs over 400, 000 nurses and without the NHS (National Health Service) would be nothing but fiction. Nurses play a big role inside the NHS. From all of the people providing a service in the NHS a nurse is the core of it all. A nurse will perform a range of tasks. Nurses will also work in different places and wards in a hospital. This is what I will discuss in my work related report moreover I will discuss the role of a nurse and many other topics regarding towards a nurse. What personal skills and qualities must a nurse have? Being a nurse is a big responsibility. You are only allowed to perform the job if you are 17 or over. There is a lot that is expected from a nurse. Stated below is what qualities and skills a nurse must have to go ahead with a nursing career. Nurses Specialise in: * Adult nursing * Childrens Nursing * Mental health nursing * Learning disability nursing Required ...
In the current study we report the results of a program of nurse algorithm-guided care for adult patients with acute minor illnesses in primary care in a very large cohort of patients (1,209,669 consultations) over a two-year period. The program was designed to fulfill two criteria: treatment algorithms and close collaboration between nurses and GPs. The program was also intended to solve some of the concerns raised about the effectiveness and appropriateness of extending the role of nurses to same day consultations for acute minor illnesses in primary care, thus substituting GPs in this function. One of these concerns is that nurses may work independently of GPs which may result in lack of consultation in the case of uncertainty [13]. To avoid this potential effect, the program reported herein was the result of a collective effort between GPs and nurses. Moreover, in all management algorithms a number of signs of alarm were included, so that patients had to be sent to the GP for an urgent ...

The first stage is sharing values, a time when nurse and organisation share similar values. The second stage is conceding values where, due to changes in the organisations values, nurses perceive that patient care becomes compromised and values diverge between the nurse and the hospital. The final stage, in which the nurse eventually resigns, is where nurses give up and feel that they compromise their professional integrity, that their values are conflicted, and that they are unable to realign their values to those of hospitals ...
I became a nurse at the age of 21 in 1995. I then completed my BSN in Nursing in 2004, the year my little boy Paxten was born. Oct. 20th 2006 he was dx with ALL, then 2 weeks later after chromosomal tests returned, hypodiploid ALL. This is a very rare type and is treated with a bone marrow transplant most of the time. Since Paxten did not have a matched sibling he went on the Very High RisK ALL Protocol. I had to quit working at the very hospital where we spent the majority of our time for the next year and a half. We were admitted in my hospital over 35 times. It was pretty hard going from the nurse to mom and not still trying to be the nurse at the same time. The nurses and doctors were all very understanding and included me in every part of his therapy. They often printed the orders and MARS off for me. This January he relapsed while just starting the maintenance phase of the protocol. AFter living 2 months in the hospital trying to get him back into remission, nothing worked. We had to take ...
Im finishing my time in the UK today and head back home tomorrow. The British Society for Rheumatology 2017 conference was interesting, on the news the key headlines were pay for National Health Service employees, nurses in particular.. Due to budget shortfalls, the NHS froze nurse pay between 2010 and 2012. Beginning in 2012, pay raises resumed but were capped at 1% per year. Because of these austerity measures, the Royal College of Nursing claims that real wages-i.e., the differences between nominal wage increases and increases to the cost of living-for nurses have actually fallen by 14%.. Economists would predict that when prices or wages fall below market rate, there will be shortages. Sure enough, that is the case in the UK. There is an estimated 50,000 person labor shortfall for NHS, equivalent to 6% of the current NHS workforce.. The Labor party is trying to address this situation. They are campaigning on lifting the the 1% cap on nurse wages and instituting mandatory staffing minimums. ...
Discusses the interpretation of nursing statistics, the problem of counting how many nurses there are in the workforce, and the need to be aware of how statistics are compiled when presenting numerical data to support arguments relating to nursing and the nursing workforce. Argues that NHS workforce statistics provide considerable evidence for claiming that there is a significant decline in the number of nursing staff doing the work of nursing in the NHS. Explains that although there was an increase in the number of qualified nurses working in the NHS throughout the 1980s (over a ten-year period the number of qualified nurses increased by 22 per cent), the increase in qualified nursing staff has not compensated for the loss of student learners in the workforce. Emphasizes that during the last three years for which figures are available, however, these gains have been wiped out, and the number of qualified nurses has declined to pre-Project 2000 levels.. ...

Since the nursing positions are temporary, the employer will be expecting a nurse who does not have for being trained or supervised.. As a travel nurse, you require some important qualifications. You will need to be considered a licensed nurse that completed the nursing program from a certified school for nursing. Its also ...
Nurses are pretty amazing. Great nurses arent just compassionate and kind - they have all the medical smarts of a doctor too!

Aim: To explore how nurses in medical wards evaluate their work and how they experience their psychosocial work environment.. Method: A quantitative, comparative cross-sectional study. Questionnaires were distributed to 57 nurses on two medical wards at Akademiska hospital.. Results: Thirtyfour nurses (60%) participated. Few nurses considered their work as calm and peaceful, and several nurses said they rarely or never had time to do the tasks that should be performed during a shift. The nurses generally stated that its very important to know patients vital signs. The task that was most affected by high workload was to know patients urine output, which only 17 nurses (50%) said they had time to check. The task that most nurses (n=28, 82%) said they had time for is to know patients level of consciousness, followed by the physicians round (n=27, 79%). The task that most nurses said that they did not have time for was to give patients oral care (n=20, 59%), followed by knowing how much patients ...

When Dad was ill, my sister went to the hospital and told everyone that she was a nurse and shed be watching them. She is a nurse -- sort of. Shes a "Gucci nurse". She comes to work in her Gucci suit and her Prada heels carrying her designer handbag and her Coach briefcase and sits in her corner office with the gorgeous view making policy for a chain of hospitals. She hasnt been near a patient in over 25 years (except for that time where her "fire most of the RNs and hire non-licensed personnel instead" policy caused the remaining RNs to strike . . . ) She arrived to visit Dad wearing $100 blue jeans, a cashmere sweater and carrying the designer handbag and Coach briefcase. Im sure that her hair and make-up were perfectly done as well. She didnt like Dads room and insisted he be moved closer to the nurses station, and then wanted a cot installed for my mother to sleep on and the food on the trays wasnt appetitizing enough and . . . . Nothing, it seemed, was good enough. She was ever so ...

As soon as your feet hit the pavement in the parking lot you begin chanting your mantra, "I can do this. Its going to be a good night." In the back of your mind theres some hope that the ER gods will be looking down upon you. For some reason you think it cant be that bad. Right? Wrong. As you hit the department doors you see fellow nurses who look as if they will be reduced to tears by the next voice they hear say, "Nurse". As if you needed confirmation of just how busy it is your eyes hit the patient boards. Confirmed: chaos is upon you.. You head to the break room where you unload and take your last few breaths of freedom. You take patient report from the distraught dayshifter who informs you of all the things she didnt have time to do.

You attempt to prioritize and meet with the most critical patients first. On your way to do rounds you are stopped by the ER ...

Dear Nurse Beth, Oil companies retain nurses on their off shore rigs, in the Gulf of Mexico for example. Im trying to find the companies which hire such nurses and what the qualifications are.
To some degree or another, many of these same factors continue to influence the U.S. health care delivery system today. Geolot (2000) predicts that in 2010 the projected full-time equivalent supply of registered nurses will no longer exceed requirements for full-time equivalent registered nurses. This is the predicted intersection to a shortage. The years following 2010 show a dramatic widening between the supply of registered nurses in relation to the requirements for registered nurses. Some states are already reporting difficulty in hiring experienced and specialty nurses and recruiting time is beginning to lengthen. This is in spite of an increase in the overall supply of registered nurses. According to the 1996 National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses (Moses, 1997), the total number of employed registered nurses increased at an average annual rate of 3.4 percent between 1992 and 1996 with 82.7 percent of the registered nurse population employed in nursing. During this same time frame, the ...

BPT) - Registered nurses (RNs) are the largest segment of the nations health care workforce. Their direct access to patients and their families has long influenced health care delivery and outcomes. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the profession among the fastest-growing in the U.S, yet nurses remain underrepresented on the leadership bodies that shape their industry.

The council cannot force states to submit names, and states have a financial incentive not to: They make money by charging nurses to verify their licenses, test scores and training to authorities in other states. For example, a nurse licensed in California who wants credentials to practice in Arizona must pay California $60 to confirm her background. Those sorts of checks netted California nearly $1 million in fiscal 2009. New York, which charges $20 a check, earns more than $250,000 a year ...

Although it is not a direct response to a particular JAN paper, this contribution to JAN Forum focuses on a continuing and major worldwide issue - nursing shortages. Indeed, virtually every nurse leader and every nursing organization worldwide claims that there is an unprecedented shortage of nurses (Watson 2006). No one, to my knowledge, has claimed that there is not a nursing shortage. Noteworthy is that discussions of past, current and projected future nursing shortages do not take into account the knowledge needed to be a professional nurse, nor do those discussions consider a work environment in which nursing practice is based on unique nursing knowledge.. I am sceptical about shortages of nurses. Indeed, I am not convinced that there even would be nursing shortages if what Watson (1997) calls nursing qua nursing were the focus of nursing practice. However, I do agree that there are global shortages of nurses for the practice of what Watson (1996) calls nursing qua medicine. Nurses are, as ...
Guest post by Marietta Faris, BSN. Maybe it happens for everyone and for every career, but it seems to me that nurses have their careers questioned more than others do. It could be that I have been a nurse for more years than I wish to state, and that every one of those years I see the question of "why" come up yet again. I do think its a good question though, and I even use it as an interview question when hiring new employees. I love telling the story of why I chose nursing myself, because that reason is very special to me.. One of the themes of the answers I get to the "why" question is that family members are or used to be nurses: "My favorite aunt worked as a nurse and I always looked up to her," or "My moms a nurse and I loved the stories of helping with deliveries." I have even had a few people talk about their fathers being nurses.. Another theme is having been present to see nursing in action when a family member was ill: "When my brother was sick as a kid the nurses were great to ...

Any one who has ever had a hospital stay or knows a loved one or friend who has been in the hospital knows that the nurses play a vital role in caring for patients. Nurses do many of the day-to-day activities of caring for patients in hospitals and clinics. They are also often the first ones at the bedside if a problem arises - so -isnt it essential that nurses be well trained in all forms of emergency procedures? Even when doctors are present, nurses often play vital roles in assisting the doctors in providing life-saving care to patients.. Law and Medicine Intersect Once Again. I have recently been working on a case in which both doctors and nurses were present during an in-hospital delivery that ended with a significant injury to the child. During the delivery, a problem was encountered that has a low incidence rate during deliveries. In considering this problem, I wondered just how frequently doctors and nurses are able to practice the skills they would need to successfully and calmly ...

I can live with only expressing, but I would really prefer him to actually be breastfeeding. This is the start of his third day on the bottle. Is it too late to get him to take my breast? I tried *so many* things in the hospital... one nurse just returned from a conference and spent two hours in the middle of the night with me. She was all about letting the baby explore and figure things out on his own. One nurse has five children and she roughly squeezed my breast while smashing my babys face into my breast. We tried many other techniques somewhere in between these two extremes - including putting sugar water on my nipple ...
