How many of us have had a job or some endeavor that we're involved in? Likely all of us. Now, how many of us have had to quit that job or endeavor? Again, likely all of us at some point in time.

Today's episode is dedicated to those of us that have left something behind, but what we want to highlight today is that you can do so with grace, and instead of just quitting for the sake of quitting, you're moving toward something.

We also want to thank one of our amazing nurse colleagues out there, Craig Erikson of Keep it Real RN. You can also check out and subscribe to his YouTube channel.

Building and maintaining confidence has likely been a hurdle for many of us at some point in our lives. How do confident people actually obtain that trait? Is it nature vs. nurture? Something traumatic that occurs, or is it a taste of success that keep us pushing for more?

Stay tuned on this one as we share our personal stories about how we got here, and some actionable steps on how you can get there.

Putting your own unique spin into everything you do is what helps you differentiate yourself from others. This may seem like an obvious statement, but if you ask yourself if you're truly adding your own flavor into what you do day-to-day and actually doing it your way, could you honestly say yes?

Show Me Your Stethoscope (SMYS) was founded almost completely by accident. A couple of ill-informed comments were proffered by hosts of The View and so began a desire and a platform to help amplify the collective nursing voice for greater good of our profession. 

Today we get into a few of the nuts and bolts of SMYS, but really we go deeper into the #NursesTakeDC platform, and how you can get involved.

We wonder why nurses sometimes feel painted into a corner or shoved into a box, and what myths (and brainwashing) persist about what nurses do and what they're capable of. This leads us to a conversation about the media (the news, TV, Hollywood) and how they pigeonhole nurses or egregiously ignore nurses altogether.

Moral distress is different from an ethical dilemma – moral distress is defined as a situation in which one believes he/she knows the appropriate ethical action to take but is unable to take that action (Jameton, 1984); whereas an ethical dilemma is a situation with two morally different but acceptable courses of action or a situation with two morally unacceptable courses of action and a choice is needed to resolve the conflict (Hamric, Spross & Hanson, 2000).

 

When healthcare providers experience moral distress, they are more likely to consider leaving or leave their current position or even the profession. This leads to staffing shortages, burnout, and ultimately effect patient care and possibly patient outcomes.

Episode 108: Nurses House

Nurses House is a nurse-managed, non-profit organization dedicated to helping registered nurses in need. Our history begins in 1922, when Nurses House began to offer nurses a place to rest and recuperate at a Long Island, NY beachfront mansion, donated by Emily Bourne.

Today, Nurses House is run by a volunteer board of directors and an executive director. Our mission is to provide short-term financial assistance to nurses in need as a result of illness, injury, or disability. 

We know our community here at RN FM Radio totally rocks, so for every $20 that's donated to Nurses House through May 2014, we will send you an RN FM Radio t-shirt as a heart felt thanks.
