Many people had been dreaming of greener pastures for many years when news hit that the United States of America is needing thousands of nurses in their country. In turn, many students, parents and even professionals had decided to pursue nursing career in the hopes of landing a job someday in the United States of America.

But now, due to the influx of Filipino nurses, more and more nurses had become jobless. The Philippine Nurses Association had even reported that close to 200,000 nurses have no work and is expected to increase. Is nursing profession about to collapse?

PNA executive director Maristela Abenojar reported that last July there were 37,679 board passers and they will compete with 160,000 seeking nursing jobs.

Many had seeks jobs elsewhere, some had even applied as call center agents others had applied as Nursing Instructors in various University, some as Reviewers, put up other businesses, work as bankers while others are forced to work as volunteers in hospitals to gain experience in their chosen path.

Our government and we as nurse professionals should work hand in hand to combat this issues. We shouldn’t let this things further aggravate us. Schools and University should be properly monitored as well as Review Centers whose main purpose is to gain more monetary reward sacrificing the quality of the education to the graduates.

So I guess the answer is really up to us nurses. Should we let our Nursing Profession Collapse?

There are some articles that you might want to read.

What is Hospice Nursing? What does the Hospice Nurse do?
Some describes Hospice Nursing as caring for the patient at the end of his life. But what is really hospice nursing? Personally, I think for me it is being there for someone when the light has finally died down. Being the strenght when everything seems to be falling into pieces.

Purpose of Hospice Nursing?
The primary purpose of hospice nursing is to keep patients comfortable in their last days, and to provide family members with information about the patient's condition. Hospice Nursing can be quiet stressful compared to other brances of nurses because you are usually dealing with dying patient but some nurses who are in hospice nurse says that it can also be rewarding.

How to become a Hospice Nurse?
All hospice nurses must be registered nurses (RNs) in addition to being certified by a state health department as a hospice worker. Aside from obtaining a bachelor’s degree, all states require prospective nurses to graduate from an accredited nursing school and successfully pass a national licensing examination. Then, to become a certified hospice nurse, you must have a current license as an RN and at least two years of full-time experience as an RN in a hospice-nursing practice, and you must pass the exam administered by the National Board for the Certification of Hospice Nurses.

Hospice Nursing! It is simply being there enduring the sorrow of the family and helping your client during his pain helping him managed it by providing him medications, ensuring patients comfort, providing adequate nutrition, sending for priests or family members if the patient wanted to.

Helping the family understand the process of dying, being there for them physically and emotionally.

Hospice Nursing is staying with the patient before death, during death and after death…

Antibiotic Resistance

Thank you so much. Enjoy!

The annual Get Smart About Antibiotics Week on Nov. 15-21, 2010 is one way to bring this problem to everyone's attention.

Antibiotics are essential to combat life-threatening bacterial infections, says Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of CDC. Unfortunately, misuse of antibiotics is widespread and contributes to resistance. We have to better promote appropriate use of antibiotics to preserve these life-saving tools.

Taking or prescribing antibiotics when they are not needed creates additional health risks. And, antibiotic use can lead to antibiotic resistance — when bacteria change in a way that reduces or eliminates the effectiveness of antibiotics. As resistance increases, a patient’s risk of complications or death from an infection also increases. Additionally, antibiotic-resistant bacteria have the potential to spread between people and cause severe infections. Reducing unnecessary antibiotic use can reduce avoidable adverse events including Clostridium difficile infections (a deadly diarrheal infection) and allergic reactions.

Antibiotics are a shared resource and, for some infections, are becoming a scarce resource, says Dr. Lauri Hicks, medical director for CDC’s Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work program. The problem is we expect antibiotics to work for every illness, but they don’t. If you have a cold, antibiotics will not work for you.

Studies indicate that nearly 50% of antimicrobial use in hospitals is unnecessary or inappropriate. There is no doubt that this overuse of antibiotics is contributing to the growing challenges posed by Clostridium difficile and other antibiotic-resistant bacteria in many hospitals. However, studies also demonstrate that improving the use of antibiotics in hospitals can not only help reduce rates of Clostridium difficile infection and antibiotic resistance, but can also improve individual patient outcomes, all while saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in healthcare costs. Get Smart for Healthcare is a CDC campaign focused on improving antibiotic use in inpatient healthcare facilities, starting with hospitals and then expanding to long-term care facilities.

The goal of Get Smart for Healthcare is to optimize the use of antimicrobial agents in inpatient healthcare settings by focusing on strategies to help hospitals and other inpatient facilities implement interventions to improve antibiotic use. Interventions and programs designed to improve antibiotic use are also referred to as antimicrobial stewardship.

The demand for nurses in the future is expected to increase. As the general population will continue to age which means they will gain access to Medicare. Also, more than 30 million people will be added to the insurance rolls as a result of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which Congress passed earlier this year.

Insufficient patient care can be seen and visualized through with an increased patient loads and having pressure as to treat more people as possible instantly after paying lesser amount of money.

According to The Bureau of Labor Statistics the Jobs for RNs will grow by 23 percent in 2009 which is faster than the average for all other occupations. As half of the RN workforce reach at retirement age in the next five years. The average age of new RN graduates is 31. They are entering the profession at an older age and will have fewer years to work than nurses traditionally have had.

We project RNs from 2008 to 2018 to add more jobs in that profession than any other profession,” said Adam Bibler, economist for the Office of Occupational Statistics and Employment Projections with the BLS.

Home Health Nurse is rendering nursing services to different patients everyday in the privacy of their own home. It can be post op patients, patients suffering from burn, person’s with physical disability, patients who had just given births, cancer patients, patients with acute illness, long term and terminal illness.

What it takes to be a Home Health Nurse?
A home health nurse should be autonomous, have sympathetic disposition and knowlegeable in his nursing duties. You should be fully equipped because you will never really know for sure what has hit you because a lot of family dramas might be going on during your care and that you might not want to get involved.
There are familys that might be very helpful to you as a home health nurse while you take care of their patients but there might be families who might make you do things which is totally unfamiliar to you and is contrary to your belief.

Always then remember that as a home health nurse you must be an advocate to your patient. No one can really force you to do the things which is not according to your beliefs.

A national survey of deans and directors from U.S. nursing schools found that 65% of new BSN graduates had job offers at the time of graduation, which is substantially higher than the national average across all professions (24.4%). At four to six months after graduation, the survey found that 89% of new BSN graduates had secured job offers.

“Despite concerns about new college graduates finding employment in today’s tight job market, graduates of baccalaureate nursing programs are securing positions at a significantly higher rate than the national average,” said AACN President Kathleen Potempa. “As more practice settings move to require higher levels of education for their registered nurses, we expect the demand for BSN-prepared nurses to remain strong as nurse employers seek to raise quality standards and meet consumer expectations for safe patient care.”

In August 2010, AACN conducted an online survey of nursing schools offering entry-level baccalaureate and graduate programs in the U.S. to better assess the experience of new graduates seeking employment.

The entire AACN Research Brief, including state-by-state data on job-offer rates for new nurse graduates, is available to download for free from http://www.aacn.nche.edu/IDS/pdf/ResBriefEmpl.pdf.

Nurse Practitioners provide high-quality healthcare services similar to those of a doctor

One advantage of subscribing to RSS feeds is that you don't have to constantly re-visit this site to check for updates within specific sections you might be interested in because your browser or Feed reader will do this for you automatically on a regular basis plus you can even get email notification.

What are Nurse Practitioners (NPs)?
Nurse Practitioners are advanced practice nurses who provide high-quality healthcare services similar
to those of a doctor. Nurse Practitioners diagnose and treat a wide range of health problems. They
have a unique approach and stress both care and cure. Besides clinical care, Nurse Practitioners focus
on health promotion, disease prevention, health education and counseling. They help
patients make wise health and lifestyle choices. They are truly your Partners in Health.

What services do Nurse Practitioners provide?
From treating illness to advising patients on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, NPs provide
a full range of services. Patients who see NPs report an extremely high level of
satisfaction with the care they receive.

Among the many services that Nurse Practitioners provide, they:
• Order, perform and interpret diagnostic tests such as lab work and x-rays
• Diagnose and treat acute and chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood
pressure, infections and injuries
• Prescribe medications and other treatments
• Manage patients' overall care
• Spend time counseling patients
• Help patients learn how their actions affect their health and well-being

Nurse Practitioners specialize in many areas, including:
• Acute Care
• Adult Health
• Family Health
• Gerontology Health
• Neonatal Health
• Oncology
• Pediatric/Child Health
• Psychiatric/Mental Health
• Women’s Health

Nurse Practitioners also often practice in sub-specialty areas such as:
• Allergy and Immunology
• Cardiovascular
• Dermatology
• Emergency
• Endocrinology
• Gastroenterology
• Hematology and Oncology
• Neurology
• Occupational Health
• Orthopedics
• Pulmonology and Respiratory
• Sports Medicine
• Urology

With an estimated 32 million newly insured Americans set to have health care coverage by 2014, and a predicted shortfall of 40,000 primary-care physicians by 2020, market forces have virtually dictated that more frontline providers are essential to the sustainability of our nation's health care system. According to a number of in-depth studies by various medical groups and leading organizations, nurse practitioners play a critical role in preventing potential coverage gaps and are a large part of the solution to the growing demands of our ever-changing health care landscape.

Role of Nurse Practitioner
The role of nurse practitioner (NP), which was first introduced in 1965, required these advanced practice nurses to work under the close supervision of a physician, with tight restrictions on what they could and couldn't do. Over the years, however, nurses have successfully pushed state licensing agencies and legislatures to grant them more autonomy and a broader spectrum of duties. Today, all states allow NPs some degree of prescribing privileges, and 12 states have granted them authority to prescribe medication independent of doctor oversight.

How can I locate an Nurse Practitioners ?
AANP is pleased to provide consumers with a quick and easy way to locate an NP. Go
to www.npfinder.com and follow the simple steps to locate an NP in your area. If you
have questions or need additional information, contact npfinder@aanp.org or call (512)

Countries around the world are facing critical nursing shortages. From North America to Africa and Europe, communities are challenged with growing health care needs and diminishing numbers of nurses.

Why is there a nursing shortage?
Many factors are contributing to the current shortage. They include:

Steep population growth resulting in a growing need for health care services.
A diminishing pipeline of new students in nursing.
An aging nursing workforce.
In addition, with improved technology and managed-care issues, only the sickest patients require hospital stays and intense treatment. Thus, skilled and specialized nurses are in great demand.

These issues are occurring just as the majority of nurses are retiring and job opportunities within health care are expanding. The result: Hospitals and other institutions need more nurses, especially those who deliver specialized care.

If I decide to enroll in an IV Theraphy Program, What do I expect to learn?
Nurses enrolled in an IV therapy program learn about common intravenous medications, electrolyte and fluid calculations. They gain skills in phlebotomy and learn about medical issues that arise from IV therapy. Aspiring IV nurses also learn about catheters specific to long- or short-term treatments, including peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) and central venous lines.

Do employers prefer nurses who have undergone IV Theraphy?
We live in a competitive world. Whatever skill you have under your belt will be helpful in landing a job as a nurse. Many employers to hire registered nurses with at least two years of experience in nursing along with 1-2 years of experience in IV therapy. Some hiring organizations stipulate that the IV therapy experience must be fairly recent, usually within 2-5 years.

Overseas qualified nurses must be registered to work in the UK. The regulatory body is called the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

NMC Registration
-Nurses trained overseas, outside the EU, must register through the NMC's Overseas Nursing Programme (ONP).

-They must meet the minimum NMC education requirement, English language requirement (academic IELTS of 6.5 or over on each section) and also undergo a 20 day programme of protected learning. Furthermore, where necessary, there may be a period of supervised practice.

-Nurses who have qualifications from Australia, South Africa, New Zealand or Canada are generally considered very highly

Post Registration Visa Application
Once the appropriate registration has been achieved, most nurses would apply for UK migration via either the work permit holder or Tier 1 - General skilled visa routes.

Work Permit
The Work Permit would generally be the fastest option for nurses outside of the EU who already have a job offer to migrate to the UK. For further information, view the UK Visa Bureau work permit pages.

Have a job offer and want to move and work in the UK as a doctor? Start your application for a work permit today

Tier 1 - General Skilled Migration visa
The Tier 1 - General Skilled Migration visa allows non-EU citizens without a job offer to live and work in the UK. Therefore, nurses without a job offer should use this UK immigration option. However, before applying, Tier 1 - General Skilled Migration visa hopefuls should seek further information on the other Tier 1 - General skilled visa requirements.

How to make an NCP? Nursing Care Plan

One advantage of subscribing to RSS feeds is that you don't have to constantly re-visit this site to check for updates within specific sections you might be interested in because your browser or Feed reader will do this for you automatically on a regular basis plus you can even get email notification. Thank you so much. Enjoy!

How to make an NCP?
First thing that you need to do when making an NCP is to go through the assessment data you have been given about this patient.

Here are the steps of the nursing process and what you should be doing in each step when you are doing a written nursing care plan NCP:

A - Assess (what is the situation?)
D - Diagnose (what is the problem?)
P - Plan (how to improve/stabilize the problem)
I - Implement (putting plan into action)
E - Evaluate (did the plan work?)


1. Assessment (collect data from medical record, do a physical assessment of the patient, assess ADL's, look up information about your patient's medical diseases/conditions to learn about the signs and symptoms and pathophysiology) . The nurse completes an holistic nursing assessment of the needs of the individual/family/community, regardless of the reason for the encounter. The nurse collects subjective data and objective data.

2. Diagnosis - Nursing Diagnosis represent the nurse's clinical judgment about actual or potential health problems/life process occurring with the individual, family, group or community. The accuracy of the nursing diagnosis is validated when a nurse is able to clearly identify and link to the defining characteristics, related factors and/or risk factors found within the patient’s assessment.

3. Planning - In agreement with the client, the nurse addresses each of the problems identified in the diagnosing phase. For each problem a measurable goal/outcome is set. For each goal/outcome, the nurse selects nursing interventions that will help achieve the goal/outcome.

4. Implementation - The nurse implements the nursing care plan, performing the determined interventions that were selected to help meet the goals/outcomes that were established.

5. Evaluation - The nurse evaluates the progress toward the goals/outcomes identified in the previous phases. If progress towards the goal is slow, or if regression has occurred, the nurse must change the plan of care accordingly.

A Nursing Care Plan NCP outlines the nursing care to be provided to an individual/family/community. It is a set of actions the nurse will implement to resolve/support nursing diagnoses identified by nursing assessment. The creation of the plan is an intermediate stage of the nursing process. It guides in the ongoing provision of nursing care and assists in the evaluation of that care.

Characteristics of the nursing care plan
1.Its focus is holistic, and is based on the clinical judgment of the nurse, using assessment data collected from a nursing framework.
2.It is based upon identifiable nursing diagnoses (actual, risk or health promotion) - clinical judgments about individual, family, or community experiences/responses to actual or potential health problems/life processes.
3.It focuses on client-specific nursing outcomes that are realistic for the care recipient
4.It includes nursing interventions which are focused on the etiologic or risk factors of the identified nursing diagnoses.
5.It is a product of a deliberate systematic process.
6.It relates to the future.

Elements of the Nursing Care Plan (NCP)
The nursing care plan consists of a nursing diagnosis with defining characteristics (subjective and objective data that support the diagnosis), related factors or risk factors, expected outcomes/goals, and nursing interventions.

Elements of the Nursing Care Plan (NCP)
•NANDA nursing diagnosis with related factors and diagnostic criteria
•Nursing outcome classifications with specified outcomes to be achieved including deadlines
•Nursing intervention classifications with specified interventions.

It’s that time of year to salute the six nurses singled out as the winners of the 2010 Nursing Spectrum and NurseWeek national Nursing Excellence Awards. Nominated by peers, managers, students and sometimes patients, each of the winners was selected from a pool of up to nine regional winners, in one of six categories: Advancing and Leading the Profession, Clinical Care, Community Service, Management, Mentoring and Teaching.

Each is a genuine example of how personal caring and professional care can bring the art and science of nursing together in six practice areas, according to Eileen Williamson, RN, MSN, senior vice president, Nursing Communications & Initiatives, Gannett Healthcare Group.

“These six nurses can truly be called ‘the best of the best’ in nursing,” Williamson says. “Their experience and expertise, in concert with the passion and commitment they have for what they do, makes them most worthy recipients of the honor that has been bestowed on them. What they contribute to healthcare and the profession of nursing is nothing short of outstanding. We at Nursing Spectrum and NurseWeek were privileged again this year to be introduced to hundreds of outstanding nurses from coast to coast in our regional Nursing Excellence Awards program, and to find ... our 2010 nurses of the year, who are excellence personified. They are inspirational in their leadership and management, mentorship and volunteerism, and in the clinical and educational expertise they bring to the practice of the profession they love.”
