Episode Description

This show touches close to my passion for making Nursing the greatest profession of all. In every one of over 100 shows I have hoped to encourage, yet challenge each nurse to strive for their best. In my professional experience, it has only been the past 20 years that I have encountered day-to-day interactions with nurses of color, because each location was primarily white. As I have journeyed through life, read books illuminating the reality & learning from my friends of color, I have been forced to address my own white privilege. In doing that, realizing how different my perceptions of the world are from professionals of color, I believe it is my duty as a human being to rectify my ignorance by learning to interact with every person in a way that upholds their knowledge, passions & perceptions, as well as my own. Join me for a FASCINATING discussion with Benjamin Mchie & Dr. Tammy Sinkfield, August 5.

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.
