Episode Description

In a world caught up in multiple crises (Global warming, a rabid election process, COVID-19, Systemic Racism), who is there to notice that Human Trafficking is continuing at a breakneck speed? My guests, Dr. Jessica Peck, a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner for over 20 years is not just paying attention, she is active in many different avenues to arrest this menace and keep it from continuing in society. She was on my show on June 6, 2020 and I invited her to come back with Holly (Austin Smith) Gibbs, who experienced trafficking as a child and has written a book about that experience, “Walking Prey: How America's Youth are Vulnerable to Sex Slavery.” She has received many awards for this book. These guests will fill in some personal experience and information to help nurses and other healthcare personnel to recognize children victims using a tool called PEARR, tell us what we can do about it and give us some hope in these dark times. Join us 1 PM ET/12 N CT/10 AM PT.

Once a Nurse, Always a Nurse

Once a Nurse, Always a Nurse

Monday at 10 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Health and Wellness Channel

There are SO many issues in healthcare that impact medical/nursing providers and patients alike, but each of them may not see the connections to themselves. This show will be a forum for nurses to tell stories about their own experiences, whether professional or family-focused and guests will inspire conversation on health and nursing-related topics. Issues will vary from communication in healthcare to current issues, such as nurse/patient ratios, dealing with conflict, how to create cooperative workplaces, speed-reading people, as nursing strikes and much more. Government policies are creating a major shift for all healthcare providers as well as their patients. We, as nurses, will be creating the future healthcare paradigms as we move forward, becoming a crucial part of the solutions. “Once a Nurse, Always a Nurse: Exploring the World of Nursing” is broadcast live every Monday at 10 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica’s Health and Wellness Channel.
