* Articles / Triumphs and Trials of Millennial Nurses by katty: February 12, 2018, 10:43:26 PM
There are many different views on the characteristics that define the millennial generation. A millennial is typically defined as someone who is born between the early 1980s and the early 2000s. Characteristics used to define this generation are split between positive and negative viewpoints.

Positives: achievement-oriented, confident, ambitious, nurtured, challengers, tech savvy

Negatives: pampered, high expectations, lazy, indecisive



Of course, we are all very different, but sometimes other generations will characterize all of us based on how they have seen a few of us behave.

Since starting at my place of employment, I have seen upper management and human resources gear benefits towards the younger generation of workers. For example, vacation scheduling used to always go by seniority—the people with the longest tenure got whatever vacation time they wanted, while the new employees were stuck with what was left or what no one else wanted.

For the older generation of employees, this was the norm. But millennials are not afraid to speak up or challenge old habits. Thus, at my place of employment, vacation still works by seniority— but each worker can only choose one week until every person gets one of their top three choices. This allowed for newer employees to have a sense of importance and appreciation.

As you might expect, the older generation of employees were very angry with this decision. One even stated, “We shouldn’t have to cater the young people who will probably just leave anyway”. But imagine always feeling like you didn’t matter, and as if nothing you did would matter until you worked somewhere for years and years. For a lot of us millennials, gaining a sense of appreciation from bosses and the higher ups made us eager to do a better job.

Millennials are very tech savvy and good with technology for the most part. We grew up with the internet and cell phones. When we joined the workforce, direct deposit was the norm. There have been plenty of technology changes in nursing, and being part of this generation is a huge advantage. Previously, all charting and orders were done on paper; now I would probably say at least 90 percent is electronic. It is the way of healthcare currently.

Therefore, a number of millennials actually end up teaching and educating older generations on how to use the new charting systems or new time clocks. Millennials typically do well with change, a huge advantage in a constantly changing career like nursing.

As for our bosses, they are trying harder and harder, it seems, to become friends with their younger employees. Many millennials have mixed views on this. Some love it, while others would prefer to keep the relationship professional. When starting your nursing career, remember your boss is your boss and not necessarily your friend.

Finally, keep in mind the perspective of more experienced generations. They will be a huge help to you as your begin your career because they have a wealth of knowledge in the ways of nursing.

Being a millennial has its benefits and negatives. We are not defined by our generational characteristics, but instead by the work and effort we put into our careers and our patients.

What are some instances that you felt you were defined by your generation? What characteristics would you use to describe millennials?

* News / 6 Things You Need To Know Before Becoming A Nurse by katty: February 12, 2018, 07:43:21 PM
So you think you want to be a nurse? You’ve watched them on the big screen, you’ve seen them in action on television, and you may have even observed them at work in real life.

It’s easy to assume that everyone knows about the profession of nursing. I mean, nurses have ranked as the #1 most trusted profession for 15 consecutive years according to the annual Gallup poll.

But does the public really know who nurses are and what we’re capable of? Do people truly understand the profession of nursing or the men and women who carry the title -- not to mention the dizzying number of specialties we practice?

Better yet, if you’re interested in becoming a nurse, do you know what you’re getting into? Here are six things you need to know before you take the leap of submitting your application to a nursing program:

Hollywood medicine gets it wrong
Male nurses do exist
We’re the most trusted profession for a reason
Alphabet soup: there are a lot of acronyms and credentials
Not everyone can do this job
The opportunities are endless

1. Hollywood medicine gets it wrong

Everything from the scrubs we wear down to the actual function and role we play at the bedside is generally misrepresented in movies and television. Many of the popular TV shows get it wrong – just ask any nurse.

Real-life nurses are high-functioning, independent, critically thinking healthcare providers who are treated as colleagues, not servants or handmaidens – and definitely not like sex objects.

Oh, and let’s be clear on one thing: nurses are not there to just take doctors’ orders – we have more autonomy than you think.

2. Male nurses do exist

Yes, we do. While we only make up roughly 10% of the nursing workforce, our presence is growing. Most of us don’t really like the term “Murse” and no, we didn’t lose our “Man Card” when we became nurses. There is a very high percentage of male nurses who love the adrenaline rush of emergency and critical care nursing, but you’ll find them in all areas of the profession.

3. We are the most trusted profession for a reason

As mentioned above, we’re #1 (for 15 years and counting) according to Gallup. We speak for our patients when they’re unable to speak for themselves. We’re the linchpins of the healthcare system for patients in all walks of life, at any stage of their medical journey. We help not only bridge the gap of understanding for our patients, but we’re honest enough to tell them the things they may not want to hear but need to hear.

4. Alphabet soup. There are a lot of acronyms and credentials

The world of healthcare loves acronyms. We love to abbreviate, probably because we just don’t have the time to write out everything. In addition to abbreviations, our profession is swimming in a sea of credentials and certifications.

Just to be clear, a CNA, LPN, RN, CRNP, CRNA, DNP, MSN, and BSN are all nurses – and yes, it can all be very confusing. I promise we’re not doing it on purpose. You’ll learn what each letter means as you progress through the profession.

5. Not everyone can do this job

It takes heart to do this job – both the physical and proverbial heart. You not only will be challenged physically (and mentally), but you’ll need to have a firm grasp on your emotions. What we see and are subjected to on a daily basis is not easily digestible. We nurses see the human condition at its worst and most vulnerable moments, and not everyone can handle that.

6. Opportunities are endless

The profession of nursing has a very unique and attractive feature: once you pass your state board exam, attain your license, and hold the title of nurse, you now have the ability to choose where you practice within the nursing profession and healthcare ecosystem.

You can choose to work in multiple areas of nursing, all without having to re-enter formal schooling. As a licensed nurse, there are many jobs you can “transfer” to without having to attain another degree. You can also pursue a wide variety of specialty certifications in order to elevate your career and increase your credibility and marketability.

What do you think? Is nursing in your future?  It’s truly not for the faint of heart, but it’s truly one of the most rewarding professions to be found in the professional world.

* News / Canada: Here are the Reasons why Quebec Nurses are Moving to Switzerland by katty: February 12, 2018, 02:50:13 PM
Quebec nurses have been moving to Switzerland for almost 40 years, thanks attractive working conditions and a health care system that is managed very differently than back home.

Quebecer Valérie Audet-Rochon has lived in Lausanne, Switzerland, for two and a half years. She's one of hundreds of nurses who've made the move.

Her daily experience of working as a nurse has changed dramatically since she left Quebec, she said.

Some of the changes include better pay, less pressure and less overtime. She said patients reap the rewards when a nurse is happy.

"I think we have to ask questions in Quebec about working conditions. People underestimate that a healthy nurse, satisfied with her conditions, is worth gold," Audet-Rochon said.

Another change is young nurses don't have to worry about having bad schedules because they are lower on the seniority ladder than others.

"We operate on rotating schedules. There is less staff at night and on weekends … That makes it so much easier when you are a young mother," she said.

Fewer possibilities

The main drawback for Quebec's nurses in Switzerland is they have fewer opportunities to advance since some jobs don't exist there. For example, there are no nurse practitioners, nurses able to prescribe tests and treatments, there.

"The hierarchy between nurses and doctors is stronger in Switzerland," Audet-Rochon said.

Swiss nurses also have more tasks, which are normally the responsibility of orderlies in Quebec, such as the distribution of meals.

Beyond the work conditions nurses experience, Switzerland benefits from larger budgets, financed by a compulsory health insurance scheme.

Health policies are distributed per canton in Switzerland and each canton has some 800,000 inhabitants.

Thanks to this management style, each canton can better adjust to its own needs, on a small scale, said Patrick Genoud, assistant director of care at the University Hospital Center (CHUV) in Lausanne.

"We do not have instructions from Switzerland," Genoud said. "Situations are very different from one canton to another."

* News / Update on Patriotic Nurses Forum, FMC Katsina Ongoing Struggle by katty: February 12, 2018, 02:36:31 PM
Good day to you, the patriotic members of NANNM FMC Katsina, wishes to acknowledge your supports, advice and prayers toward the struggle to reposition, restore the images of NANNM and to rescue the union from the hands of those whose sole aim is to enrich themselves from the sweat of the hard working members of our union (NANNM FMC Katsina unit branch).
 
It is no longer news that the present exco of NANNM FMC Katsina unit branch have failed us in all ramification, but the news is that we will neither allow them to drag the image of this noble profession to the mud nor allow them to toy over our intelligent.
 
The exco have made it their birth right to deep hand into the coffer of this association at will to make withdrawal for their personal use, in light of this, you can recall that we urge them to call for congress and explain to us why our account is depreciating day in day out within a month frame, but they were unable to come up with a white lies within the stated time, as a result of this, we also gave them another lifeline (extension of 2 weeks) which expires on 31/1/2018.
 
After much persuasion from high ranking officers of this union, they (exco) have finally summon the courage to schedule a congress for Thursday 09/02/2018, although they were unable to provide us with the statement of account to enable us to know what is left in our account and how they have share our resources among themselves and their allies as we (the patriotic nurses) demanded in our last letter of reminder addressed to the office of the chairman.
 
As we are passing this information to you now, we are fully aware of their effort to cause confusion among our members using their usual rule and divide methods by spreading rumor that patriotic nurses are junior cadres who are out to embarrass senior colleague, we need to also assure you that we are on path of truth and justice, there will be no amount of persecution that will make us relent on this struggle and we will never be compromise as their efforts to bribe some key member of this forum met brick wall.
 
Despite the fact that we know that the congress they are inviting us for is a face saving one, because the agenda is not outlined, we urge all the patriotic members and the like mind to be present in order to know what explanation they will come up with, after which we shall make our stand known.
 
We hereby introduce the executives of Patriotic nurses for consultation and for any enquiries………….

* News / Israeli Physicians Protest Plan to Let Nurse Practitioners Do Doctor's Tasks by katty: February 12, 2018, 12:08:07 PM
More than 400 physicians in the Maccabi health maintenance organization signed a petition last weekend against plans to bring nurse practitioners into the country’s community clinics.

The Health Ministry has for years been advancing plans to integrate highly trained nurses into clinical settings and grant them expanded authority. The petition was a reaction to a recent circular from the ministry defining the authorities of nurse practitioners, in preparation for their service in community health clinics.

In the petition, the Maccabi doctors warned of the “dangerous measure” in which “a large part of the authorities of primary-care physicians – family doctors, pediatricians and gynecologists – [would be transferred to] to nurse practitioners, who after very brief training will be able to diagnose in an amateurish manner acute and chronic illness, to write prescriptions for a range of conditions, to refer [patients] for tests and specialists, to draw up treatment plans for patients, to write medical directives and more.”

The petition went on to warn of “the great danger! both to the health of the insured and the professional image of Maccabi” that will result from the implementation of the Health Ministry’s recommendations, which “is likely to cause widespread chaos in the existing system and to bring to an unprecedented nadir to the quality of primary medicine. We staunchly and uncompromisingly oppose any measure by Maccabi that is based on the latest Health Ministry circulars. We will not lend a hand to the implementation of the recommendations, and we intend to take any step necessary to foil any move based on them.” The doctors argue that any expansion of nurses’ authority must be carried out in a responsible manner and coordinated with physicians in the community.

In a recent discussion held by the Israel Medical Association on the topic, physicians in Israel’s other HMOs supported the views of their colleagues in Maccabi.

“We were against this move from the very beginning,” says the chairman of the Israel Medical Association, Dr. Leonid Eidelman. “We think it will distance patients from doctors and will not yield a benefit. We support teamwork, in which the physician does the medical work and the nurse the nursing work.... Instead of seeing a doctor, the patient will see a nurse. Nurses aren’t trained for medical work, and it will harm the patients,” Eidelman says. “Even in the United States, where the idea of nurse practitioners began, today there’s an understanding that it doesn’t contribute to patients and there, too, there is opposition from the American Medical Association,” Eidelman says.

Plans for training and giving professional recognition to nurse practitioners have been under discussion for years. In 2015 the Health Ministry and the Civil Service Commission recognized the profession as a medical profession. The United States has had nurse practitioners since the 1960s, and the idea has been adopted in a number of European countries.

The aging of Israel’s population and the rise in the number of people living with chronic illness have been cited to justify the expansion of the authorities of some nurses. Health Ministry officials came to the conclusion, partly on account of the recommendations of a committee headed by Prof. Shlomo Mor-Yosef, that properly trained nurse practitioners could assume some of the burden of care now provided by physicians while better serving patients.

Registered nurses with at least a master’s degree in nursing are eligible to enroll in a nurse practitioner program, which includes academic studies and clinical training.

According to the recent Health Ministry circular, nurse practitioners are qualified to examine patients and assess their condition; refer patients for diagnostic tests and monitoring; initiate and end treatment with medication; identify and treat complications; identify emergency situations and render first aid; refer patients to specialists, and more.

To name a few examples, nurse practitioners are authorized to diagnose respiratory infections and to prescribe antibiotics and steroids; to treat diseases of the digestive system; various skin conditions and wounds; and to treat muscle and skeletal pain. In the area of emergency medicine, nurse practitioners can perform resuscitation and treat pulmonary edema, cardiac arrhythmia, convulsions and poisoning. (In all these situations a physician must be present, if one is available.) Nurse practitioners can also give one-time treatments for anxiety and talk therapy for sleep disorders. In addition, they can make decisions in the treatment of patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiac insufficiency and other chronic conditions, in coordination with the patients’ physicians.

“I don’t think the doctors should be opposed. I also don’t think that one sector can prevent the professionalization of a different sector,” Israel Nurses Association Chairwoman Ilana Cohen said in response. “A committee was formed and made a decision, that must be respected. Even today, nurses bear more than a little medical responsibility for patients.”

* Articles / Overcoming Social Stigma in Nursing Profession by katty: February 12, 2018, 11:56:29 AM
As I mentioned in my previous article “Nursing and Social Stigma” dated 02 December 2017 about the not so good image of the profession of nursing, Nurses/Nursing officers don’t get the respect they deserve and the profession is ridden with a plethora of stereotypes. The core problem is that nursing isn’t valued in line with its worth, because so many don’t understand what nursing is all about.

The good thing is public perception is gradually shifting as qualified nurses are becoming a demand.

The Bureau of labour statistics predicts that employment of registered nurses is expected to grow by 22% from 2008 to 2018.



Recalling my previous article, “Nursing and Social Stigma”, media plays a huge role in shaping how people think about nursing. It’s the media’s portrayal of nursing officers that had a great impact how public thinks about this profession.


One of the barriers I perceive in helping to change this is our strict standard of privacy and anonymity. Yes, you read that right. We as nurses are some of the staunchest defenders of confidentiality – and we can’t easily brag about the details of our daily examples of nursing interventions that make a difference to patients and families across the breadth of the continuum of care. Our challenge is to convey the essence of our complex professional roles through composite stories and scenarios, while abiding by our Code of Ethics.

Stereotypes and inaccurate perceptions often arise out of mystery. They fill in knowledge gaps where they exist. For many people, it is still a mystery what nurses do in our modern health care settings. If we were more intentional and less anonymous about our contributions to patient care and safety (while protecting patient confidentiality), we might remove some of the mystery and prompt more accurate appraisals of nursing’s value and the key roles we play as part of the health care system. I think, there are many things that nurses can do to balance and counteract the stereotypes and portrayals. We can enhance the public’s trust in us by standing together for safe client care in all situations, advocate for responsible stewardship of our publicly funded healthcare resources, use our knowledge to educate clients at every suitable opportunity and ensure that the profession stays strong long into the future by developing and fostering leaders.

We must help people understand what we really do for the sick and the well. Try to give your family, friends, relative etc. an accurate impression of nursing. Speak to everyone about the value of nursing and explain it to those you meet, whenever and wherever. When you read, view or hear anything that undervalues or disrespects nursing, speak and raise your voice so that people get aware about it. As nursing officers we need to know how to present ourselves as smart, well-educated, competent and skilled professionals. Rather than whispering and blaming to one another, let’s start an open discussion about deep rooted stereotypes that are prevalent in our society. We need to think whether these portrayals are damaging relationships. We as professionals bind with public, clients and with other professionals. If such portrayals exist, we need to change about how we present our profession to the world. Each nurse needs to explore how his/her actions affect the image of profession. Nursing faculty need to work with students to promote the image of nursing. We need to recognize the effect of our behaviour outside the workplace. We need to educate patients by nursing out loud- articulating their assessment and verbalizing what they are thinking, for example while ambulating a patient explain him/her that ambulation strengthens muscle tone, improves circulation, gastrointestinal and excretory functions.


I have heard nurses emphatically state that they don’t want their children to go into nursing profession, as they have to work in an environment where they are not respected, are underpaid and have to work for thankless people, who have unrealistic expectations. Obviously these kind of nursing officers are deteriorating our image. When an old friend or relative asks about your profession or work, don’t roll your eyes or shrug your shoulders. Try responding by putting your shoulders back, looking into the persons eyes and say confidently with pride, “I am a registered nurse, a nursing officer and I work in ABC hospital”. Be proud that the care you give is exemplary, ethical and safe. Such everyday actions will improve the image of profession definitely. And remember despite of stupid stereotypes, we are the most dedicated, hardworking, competent and caring professionals.

Part of changing our image is growing as a profession and such growth requires a nurturing process. Our nurse leaders need to guide this process by cultivating a professional image by speaking to community and civic groups about what nursing is and what it does. We are the frontline caregivers available 24*7, with individuals from birth, throughout their lifespan and at the end of life. Changing the way the media presents nursing could change societal views, but we as nursing officers need to work too for reducing the prevailing stereotypes.
