We have a LOT to talk about: COVID, Vaccines, Needs of Nurses and commitment of nursing organizations to put nurses FRONT and CENTER! Nurses have spent enough time quietly at the bedside doing work the public cannot even imagine! Nurses are also researchers, in epidemiology, integrative medicine, education AND innovation specialists. It is time for nurses to be recognized for the unique role we bring to the practice of Health Care of our citizens. Please join by calling 866-472-5792 to ask your questions on this exhilarating Episode of Once A Nurse!

COVID has brought new and previously unexpected changes to the practice of healthcare of nursing. Nurses Everywhere in the world have had to reinvent the work they had done up until March of 2020. Nursing Schools turned their curriculum on a dime to virtual learning, with no preparation. Hospitals found every aspect of the care they had given, changing by the hour. Leadership to bedside nurses were desperately trying to adapt to patients, who were desperately sick & needed treatment, which had not YET been invented. Research Nurses turned every thought and many sleepless hours to identifying the novel coronavirus, determined how to test for it, developed those tests and got them out to the citizens. Local Public Health Nurses found themselves in a breakneck struggle to find, test and notify infected people who needed to immediately quarantine and release names of people they had encountered. MUCH needs to be evaluated at the end of this crisis to determine how to avoid another experience. Nurses are remarkably suited to look out for the needs of ALL patients. How will Nursing organizations help spearhead this work?
