Additionally, many institutions of higher education have department-specific scholarships available and encourage students to pursue those options through their department of concentration. You should explore the availability of nursing scholarships available through your school early in the spring preceding your entry into the school or program, and you need to complete applications according to deadlines in order to be considered.
Both Air Force and Navy ROTC programs offer potential scholarship assistance to women who will pursue the field of nursing. Qualifications must be met, and awards can be quite ample, with initial grants plus monthly stipends allowing for the student to be able to afford her nursing studies. The awards are generally accompanied by a required time of active duty following graduation.
September 15, 2010 -- Today Truth executive director Sandy Summers led a webinar for ADVANCE for Nurses on the image of nursing, including why that image is important and what we can do to improve it.
The success of the United States health care system depends largely on the availability of registered nurses to work in the sector. Nonetheless, the United States has been experiencing acute shortages in the number of nurses since the late 20th century. Additionally, the number of American students willing to work in the nursing sector has decreased over the years further contributing to the shortage. There has been a recurrent need for a permanent solution that will ensure a constant supply of nurses to meet the high demand. Since the 1970s, the United States has opted for the recruitment of nurses from other countries to meet its health care needs. However, there have been various arguments against and for immigrant nurses. Scandals involving immigrant nurses have led to hot debates discussing whether the impact of immigrant nurses is positive or negative. This paper presents the arguments that have been raised concerning the issue of immigrant nurses. The importance of this debate is to understand the different positions that exist concerning the recruitment of foreign nurses to the United States.
â Jean Watson’s nursing theory revolves around the science of caring and how much nurses express care for their patients via a holistic approach, as she believed that medical care, in addition to the emotional support a nurse shows his or her patient can make a difference in a patient’s health overall.
The link from "movement" is to the Truth's main page. Binder concludes by arguing that the gap between image and reality plays a role in the ongoing nursing shortage, which of course threatens patients. We thank her for another helpful piece about the need to improve public understanding of nursing.
â As one of the most profound nursing professionals, Madeleine Leininger is responsible for developing the concept of trans-cultural nursing, fusing the principles of the nursing profession with various cultural elements.
One of the most discussed examples of immigrant nurses scandals is that of the 27 Filipino nurses who were hired in 2005 from the Philippines to work in SentosaCare nursing homes (Berger 1). It is important to note that nurses from the Philippines account for the highest percentage of immigrant nurses in the United States. Their employer was the Sentosa Enterprise, which is a recruiting agency, affiliated to the New York nursing homes. After working for sometime, the nurses complained of exploitation and breach of contract thus resigning in 2006. The nurses were then indicted by the Suffolk County attorneys for abandoning and endangering patients’ lives. The nurses walked out of the Avalon gardens nursing home after resigning from their jobs due to harsh working conditions. However, their employer argues that they did not provide adequate notice before resignation and thus their action was illegal. This case has been a cause for debate among people of different backgrounds with each person taking different sides.
During this 20-year period, the health of Canadians deteriorated despite significant government reinvestments following a period of severe budgetary cuts to the healthcare system (OECD 2011). Moreover, the old healthcare system, essentially a disease/illness model, became more fragmented, more depersonalized and less accessible. Both events can be attributed, in part, to nurse burnout and the undermining of nursing and its leadership (Vahey et al. 2004). Further, the introduction of program management to address the inefficiencies of the healthcare system was accompanied by a serious decline of nursing leadership from among the senior ranks of healthcare teams.
January 2014 -- This month the website College Xpress posted "TV Health Careers vs. Reality," a detailed story by Julia Quinn-Szcesuil that relied on several quotes from Truth director Sandy Summers. The piece addressed a number of issues in giving career seekers a general sense of what entertainment television gets right and wrong about health care. But it also gave Summers, Massachusetts emergency nurse Jill Baker, and New York nursing scholar Diana Mason space to explain inaccuracies that affect nursing in particular, such as the stereotype that nurses are physician handmaidens with no important role in care. We thank College Xpress and Ms. Quinn-Szcesuil.
The current healthcare system is slowly evolving into a new system built on a vision of health promotion, primary care and community-based home care, with hospitals still being a core pillar of the healthcare system but not its primary service. This transformation requires a new approach to practice, namely, Strengths-Based Nursing Care (SBC). SBC is about mobilizing, capitalizing and developing a person's strengths to promote health and facilitate healing. For nurses to practise SBNC requires strong nursing leadership that creates conditions to enable them to do so. Strengths-Based Nursing Leadership complements and acts in synergy with, SBNC. This paper describes eight principles of Strengths-Based Nursing Leadership to support SBNC.
