Episode Description

I met Dee McCarthy on LinkedIn as I saw her compassionate, heartfelt, compassionate posts. The first one that caught me was as simple as it could be (this is not exact): I Love you! If so many people can hate without knowing the person, then I can Love without knowing them. I was hooked. When I found her, she turned out to be just as interesting as I suspected and has had a varied and interesting career. I asked her to talk about Long Term Care--the neglected cousin of the healthcare system. I also asked her to bring someone with quite a bit of nursing experience, Kim Taylor, and someone relatively new to being an RN, Jackie Moon. We will talk about advantages/disadvantages of working in LTC, how to recruit new and younger nurses, new career delivery models and the future of LTC along with anything else you would like to add, if you JOIN us on Monday at 12N CT on VoiceAmerica.com! 1-866-472-5792

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.
