Health reform will bring need for more nurses in Oklahoma, December 2, 2010:"More Oklahomans could soon hear: “The nurse will see you now.” The prescription for hospitals and doctors' offices, which will get even busier as health care reform brings millions more people to their doorsteps, may be highly trained nurses with greater authority. Those nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and be full partners with doctors as health care reform collides with an aging population and a reduction in primary care doctors, according to the Institute of Medicine and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation."

Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing Profession Fact Sheet, American Association of Occupational Health Nurses, Inc.:"Occupational and environmental health nursing is the specialty practice that provides for and delivers health and safety programs and services to workers, worker populations and community groups. The practice focuses on promotion and restoration of health, prevention of illness and injury and protection from work related and environmental hazards. History The first record of occupational and environmental health nursing in the United States dates back to 1888 when a nurse named Betty Moulder cared for Pennsylvania coal miners and their families. The profession evolved with the growth of industry around the beginning of the 20th century, as factories employed nurses to combat the spread of infectious diseases like tuberculosis, to address health-related problems resulting from labor shortages during World War I, and to cut costs rising from new workers' compensation legislation."

After 17 years on a critical-care unit, Annie Hamilton has decided to go back to school to become a teacher. The problem for those depending on quality health care in Greater Cincinnati and nationwide is that more and more Annie Hamiltons are leaving nursing and not enough Matt Lowes are entering."

Nurses Early Exit Study (NEXT), European Public Health Alliance (EPHA):"The Nurses Early Exit Study (NEXT) interim findings on why nurses are leaving the profession. A seminar was hosted by the Scandinavian SALTSA group in Brussels on October 7th on why so many nurses across Europe are leaving the profession early. The SALTSA research programme runs in collaboration with the Swedish National Institute for Working Life (NIWL) and the Swedish confederations of employees. The speakers identified a number of reasons including: low pay problems achieving work/home balance anti-social working hours lack of influence in the workplace lack of psychological support poor working conditions etc These tend to be generic reasons, although they all have varying degrees of impact in different countries."

Characteristics of the Nursing Profession, Healthgulf.com:"Muller (1998, p17) describes a profession as "a specific career where work of an intellectual nature is performed. This career makes a public statement in respect of its uniqueness, the career specific training, education required, as well as the career specific values and norms that are pursued". This definition is in accordance with the Oxford Dictionary (Pearsall, 1998, p1480). Practitioners determine the unique characteristics and traditions of each individual profession. Professionalism implies that practitioners comply with the norms, traditions and expectations of the profession ( Muller, p17). Muller (p25-27) further describes professionalism as knowledge and skills, high standard of practice, leadership, self-regulation, professional commitment, social values and service-directedness. This author (Muller, p18-25) summarizes a profession using 18 international criteria. These criteria are outlined below."

Looking for Job Satisfaction? Consider the Nursing Profession, Inova Health System:"It's 7 a.m. and your shift is just starting. The floor is waking up. It's been 18 hours since you've seen Mr. Smith. You know he is recovering from an auto accident and is not a happy patient. He wants to get some work done, but his doctor wants him to rest and focus on his recovery. You walk into his room and he's agitated. It's your job to help calm him down. Patients perceive nurses as true caregivers. That's why many people chose the nursing profession. While physicians take care of a patient's physical well being, nurses are seen as consolers, comforters and counselors. Patients are more apt to share their true feelings with a nurse, feelings they may not share with their physicians. Often these feelings are more emotional than medical, involving isolation, loneliness, fear and uncertainty."

Men In Nursing, Minoritynurse.com:"However, that was almost 40 years ago, some may argue. Certainly the bias and prejudices toward men in nursing that existed at that time no longer exist. Right? Wrong, according to Gene Tranbarger, Ed.D., R.N., CNAA, associate professor of nursing at East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C. "Open discrimination against men is fast disappearing from schools of nursing but remains imbedded in the school fabric," he observes. "The faculty still relies on feminine pronouns when discussing nurses. Male nurses who wish to work in obstetrics/gynecology still face obstacles and often have to resort to legal remedies."

The Nursing Shortage, Office of The Professions, New York (2001):"This is the eighth in a series of reports to the Board of Regents on emerging issues in professional regulation. The report deals with a potential crisis that may seriously affect all New Yorkers in the next few years - the nursing shortage. Previous reports in this series include corporate practice of the professions, telepractice, cross-jurisdictional professional practice, continuing competence, effective professional regulation and discipline, illegal (unlicensed) practice of the professions, and rising consumer expectations. This report describes a fundamental health care issue that is basic to the Regents public protection mission. The critical shortage of qualified nurses projected within the next five years will have a profound effect on health care for New York's consumers well into this new century."

Feb. 5, 2005: Canada: Programs match newcomers with professions:"Mahnaz Alibeiki knew her nursing skills were needed in Canada but had no idea how she'd get a licence to practise in a Toronto hospital. The 30-year-old Iranian newcomer had the healing touch; what she needed was some guidance in navigating through "the system" in a new country. She got it through the CARE for Nurses Project, one of a score of provincially funded career-bridging programs that are helping foreign-trained professionals find a place in the Canadian workforce — a partial answer to growing criticism that Canada demands high skill levels from immigrants but does little to help them integrate."

Tuesday, June 4, 2002: Nurses marching out of profession, Better pay, staffing at hospitals sought:"A critical shortage of nurses in Washington state and across the country is threatening the quality of patient care, and the crisis is only expected to get worse. In less than two decades, the number of vacant full-time nursing positions is expected to mushroom from 126,000 to 300,000 nationwide. That trend is being echoed in Washington, which saw 1,400 vacant positions swell to 2,200 in the past year alone. "It's pretty grim," said Barbara Frye, labor-relations director of the Washington State Nurses Association. "The average nurse in this state is 47 years old. People are going to be retiring and quitting."

Split decision, Nursing profession ranks low in desirability despite public's high regard for nurses, Nurseweek:"At a party where the conversation naturally turned to occupations, Kimberly Betzler, MSN, NP, RN, braced herself for The Question. "Oh, you’re a nurse?" her inquisitor said, genuinely pleased at the news. Then with a crinkled nose, "I don’t think I could deal with all those bodily fluids—I don’t think I could be a nurse." Most people generally are happy to learn that someone is tending to the sick and needy, but they’re equally happy it’s not them, said Betzler, a nurse practitioner at Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis. Recent surveys illustrate the dichotomy between the public’s perception of nursing as a noble profession, and an equally strong opinion that nursing is difficult and often unpleasant."

A Day in the Life, The Princeton Review:"Nurses help prevent disease and injury and care for the sick and injured, but within these parameters, there are no limits to what the job can entail. "Nursing offers you the opportunity to do a million different things, in a million different places," as one survey respondent put it. Nurses work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics, schools, corporations, and sometimes even in businesses of their own. While there are many different areas of specialization, some individuals are general nurses, who assist doctors by performing a variety of tasks as needs arise, and will often have secretarial duties as well if they work in HMOs or private offices. More specialized nurses include surgical nurses, who ensure the sterility of instruments and assist doctors during surgery; obstetric-gynecological nurses, who help to deliver babies; neonatal nurses, who care for newborns and teach new mothers how to feed their babies; nurse anesthetists, who work with anesthesiologists to provide proper sedation for patients; or psychiatric nurses, who care for patients with mental or emotional disorders."

******************************************************

Reader's Companion to U.S. Women's History, Nursing Profession:"Modern nursing, a predominately although not exclusively women's field, began during the Civil War, when those women who volunteered to nurse sick and wounded soldiers proved that careful attention to proper sanitation, nourishing diets, cleanliness, and comfort dramatically cut shockingly high morbidity and mortality rates. After the war the volunteers spearheaded a movement for formal nurses' training. Simultaneously, hospitals also recognized a need for more skilled, disciplined, and competent nurses to improve the quality and efficiency of care. By the early twentieth century women wishing to nurse "bartered" two or three years of service to hospitals in exchange for a diploma that promised entry into a respectable, autonomous form of work, free from the constraints that accompanied other "women's" occupations, such as teaching, factory labor, or domestic service. But it was not always a fair exchange. Hospitals quickly recognized student labor as a cheap and easily exploited commodity. They structured training around their own staffing needs. Upon graduation, nurses found themselves in sex-stereotyped, overcrowded, and isolated practice, competing for jobs with poorly trained women and also with new nursing graduates."
