See You Now: Who Cares When Nurses Leave?
This summer, SEE YOU NOW is on the road and part of the Aspen Ideas: Health conference. Bringing together an exceptional mix of experts, visionary thinkers, and innovative doers from across a range of disciplines and viewpoints, Aspen Ideas: Health is appreciated for stimulating, and sometimes provocative exchanges that turn ideas into action and chart pathways toward better health for all.  Building on the recognition that the health of one depends on the health of all, the well-being of our healthcare workforce -- specifically nurses -- took center stage at Aspen as a global priority. In an expert panel discussion led by SEE YOU NOW host and nurse Shawna Butler, we talk candidly about Healthcare in Critical Condition: Who Cares When Nurses Leave?  This expert panel highlighted the nursing crisis as a healthcare crisis – that without skilled, experienced, supported and empowered nurses, reliably safe and quality healthcare is at risk, with a disproportionate impact on rural America. The needs are urgent and action is non-negotiable – patient health and safety are on the line. Listen in to hear nurse and researcher Christopher Friese professor at the University of Michigan School of Nursing, nurse Karen Dale CEO, AmeriHealth Caritas District of Columbia, and emergency physician Christopher Barsotti Program Director, AFFIRM at The Aspen Institute, discuss opportunities, challenges and solutions to Healthcare’s Great Resignation. -| The Nurse Podcast Channel is made possible with support from IHI.

The Handoff Podcast: A new approach to addressing violence against nurses
According to a survey put out by Trusted Health earlier this year, half of all nurses have been the subject of an attack, intimidation or assault by a patient or patient’s family member since the start of the pandemic.  Our guest for today’s episode, Mel Cortez, experienced this first hand working in a Baltimore area ICU. Later, when she saw how many nurses were leaving the profession because of workplace violence, she was inspired to start Cortex Gold, a joint venture between two nurses and a Marine Corps veteran whose mission is to help hospitals create a safer, more secure workplace for nurses and other healthcare workers. Today she and Dan talk about what a culture of safety actually looks like, Mel’s protocol-based approach to handling incidents of violence and the role that nurse managers and nurse leaders play in making hospitals a safer place to work.  Links to recommended reading:  Fact Sheet: Health Care Workplace Violence and Intimidation, and the Need for a Federal Legislative Response Toolkit for Mitigating Violence in the Workplace  The full transcript for this episode can be found here: works.trustedhealth.com/handoff/mel-cortez-violence-against-nurses -| The Nurse Podcast Channel is made possible with support from IHI.

High Performance Nursing: Story Vs Fact – Nursing Your Mind
Considering the overwhelming nature of our career as nurses, it’s normal to have a mind full of competing stories and thoughts, sometimes, its really hard to see what is story and what is fact! If you are feeling like your brain has you running round in circles, good news your human! It just so happens that our primitive brains are wired to entertain these thoughts without them being factual truth! I believe we need to learn how to assess our thoughts and differentiate which ones are facts and which ones are simply stories we tell ourselves that we have practiced believing are true despite evidence to the contrary. In this episode, I discuss how our brain works and how we must actively distinguish facts from stories to take back our power and manage our mind for life and career success! If you find yourself continually battling thoughts that are harmful to your mental health as you go about your nursing career, this episode is definitely for you!  As always, if you need mental health support, please reach out to the appropriate services and get the help you need!

The Nurse Keith Show: How Subtle Shifts in Mindset Can Help Nurse Practitioners (and Nurses) Thrive

The Nurse Keith Show: How Subtle Shifts in Mindset Can Help Nurse Practitioners (and Nurses) Thrive
On episode 394 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Josie Tate, MSN, CRNP, FNP-C, a successful family nurse practitioner and inspirational NP career mentor. In the course of their spirited discussion, Keith and Josie discuss the awareness and mindset it takes to level up from RN to NP; how subtle shifts impact success; overcoming Impostor Syndrome; and how to thrive in and out of clinical practice. Josie Tate is a family nurse practitioner and career mentor with a heart to see others succeed. Since starting her nursing journey with a BSN in 2006, her most memorable times include being a preceptor to nursing students and mentor to newly hired employees. Soon after becoming a nurse practitioner in 2018, she saw new NPs experience a disconnect between obtaining an advanced degree and embracing the role of advanced practice provider. To bridge that gap, she created Clincepts, a mentoring resource to help nurse practitioners get happily hired. As a nurse leader, Josie empowers nurse practitioners to start their career endeavors encouraged and equipped to start their search and seal the deal to their ideal NP job. Clincepts at its core strives to be the much needed support structure that elevates advanced practice nurses to thrive both in and out practice. Josie is also passionate about her life outside of practice. Her favorite roles are wife to her college sweetheart and mom to their three fun-filled kids. In her spare time, you can catch her completing a home decor project or reading a self-development book.

RNegade: Disrupting age old problems in healthcare
In this podcast, Karen and Antra sit down with Zach Smith, a nurse entrepreneur based out of Oregon. They run the gamut in this conversation, covering the early struggles that Zach encountered in his early career. This includes the fractured methods used to pathwork together a preceptorship, feeling like you’re not fitting in, the animosity you can be faced with when you dare to ask a physician a question, to ultimately finding his nursing niche in mental health. The conversation then dives into the pitfalls that exist in the current nursing school world. Nurses are woefully prepared for the real world, and the discussion touches on the high attrition rates seen in new nurses within the 2 years of them graduating school. They discuss the fact that nurses use so little of what they learn in school and the fact that institutions don’t connect nurses to enough of the real world of healthcare for them to be successful. Furthermore, the ambitious entrepreneur takes us through his work on a nurse-focused scheduling app that eventually was sold to a large enterprise, to his huge ambitions of changing the way that hospitals are accredited with a patient and staff focused approach.

The Nurse Keith Show: Why Nursing Associations Still Matter
On episode 392 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Cheryl Peterson, MSN, RN, Vice President for Nursing Programs at the American Nurses Association (ANA). In the course of their conversation, Keith and Cheryl discuss the role of professional nursing associations in this day and age, and how these associations can be leveraged in terms of the big issues of our day (e.g.: climate change, racism, and the challenges of safe staffing). Nursing associations like the ANA can’t do it alone, so Keith and Cheryl dive into the question of how to involve groups and individuals who are willing to embrace being stakeholders and engaging in collective action for the greater good. In her role as VP for Nursing Programs at the ANA, Ms. Peterson is responsible for guiding ANA’s Department of Nursing Practice and Work Environment, the Center for Ethics and Human Rights, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Minority Fellowship Program and ANA’s signature initiative, Healthy Nurse Healthy Nation™. Each of these areas contribute to advancing ANA’s strategic nursing practice efforts designed to meet the association’s vision of a healthy world through the power of nursing. Since coming to the ANA in 1990, Ms. Peterson has developed significant expertise in addressing a myriad of nursing and health issues through the application of practice and policy development strategies and strategic advocacy efforts. She has policy expertise in the areas of nursing workforce development, immigration and trade, occupational safety and health, and health system transformation. Ms. Peterson also serves as ANA’s principal liaison to the International Council of Nurses.

See You Now: Why Work in Healthcare?
During the summer of 2022, SEE YOU NOW has been on the road meeting new ideas and people and sharing stories about what we’ve experienced in a wide range of healthcare encounters. In this episode we invite you join us at the Aspen Ideas: Health conference.  Aspen’s 60+ sessions are designed to engage a broad audience in the issues that shape our lives, challenge our times, and introduce us to leaders and ideas that chart pathways toward better health for all. Building on the understanding that reliable, safe, quality healthcare for all depends on a well-trained, energetic, and abundant workforce, the health and wellbeing of clinicians took center stage at Aspen. Despite schools of nursing, medicine, and public health attracting record numbers of qualified applicants, many highly trained health professionals are leaving the field. In this lively panel discussion led by physician and former NYC Health commissioner Dave Chokshi, MD, seasoned clinicians Sandra Lindsay, RN, MBA, Adrian Billings, MD and Siobhan Wescott, MD MPH speak candidly about the exhaustion, debt, and moral injury plaguing the healthcare workforce; the political, financial, and workforce solutions they advocate for; and in spite of -- or because of -- the numerous system-level challenges, why working in healthcare remains a rewarding and promising career choice -| The Nurse Podcast Channel is made possible with support from IHI.
