There are SO many issues in healthcare that impact medical/nursing providers and patients alike, but each of them may not see the connections to themselves. This show will be a forum for nurses to tell stories about their own experiences, whether professional or family-focused and guests will inspire conversation on health and nursing-related topics. Issues will vary from communication in healthcare to current issues, such as nurse/patient ratios, dealing with conflict, how to create cooperative workplaces, speed-reading people, as nursing strikes and much more. Government policies are creating a major shift for all healthcare providers as well as their patients. We, as nurses, will be creating the future healthcare paradigms as we move forward, becoming a crucial part of the solutions. “Once a Nurse, Always a Nurse: Exploring the World of Nursing” is broadcast live every Monday at 10 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica’s Health and Wellness Channel.

    Resilience Paradigm Principles

    Resilience Paradigm Principles

    Nurses in 2020 are in trouble. It appears in the form of bullying, burnout, and leaving the profession. There is a saying that “Life is what happens while you are making other plans.” Since this is true for all of us, we need to learn how to be resilient through whatever comes our way. Some say you “have” it or you don’t. I believe we can learn new habits and tools to make us more resilient. My guests, Lyn McCright and Teresa Walding have created Advancing Holistic Health to prove that point. They developed a program called the Resilience Paradigm, the principles of human psychological functioning, and we will discuss the principles of health behind it. Through this groundbreaking advancement in the field of health care—a foundational model for living fully in the present—we can now teach, through logic, that which can only be realized through insight. Using it, you will see the innate resiliency of your clients, colleagues, and, most important, you will see it within yourself.

    Parenting Our Parents: Transforming the Challenge into a Journey of Love

    Parenting Our Parents: Transforming the Challenge into a Journey of Love

    My Guest, Jane Wolf Frances t, is a psychotherapist, attorney, author, coach, trainer, speaker and blogger, who has written an extraordinary & greatly needed road map about how to prepare and how to manage when our parents need us to help by parenting them. This is an experience which will happen for most of us at some point. The book is very engaging and shares her story and that of her parents, but also brings us into view as she shares potential hazards, insights and tips about what we might expect as our parents morph from the people we have always known and probably depended on, into frail and dependent people, who are strangers to us. We will discuss Jane’s shock of first realizing that while she was living and growing her life and career, her parents had hit a roadblock of illness that threw them both into a hell of exhaustion, confusion and terror. They held the information from her because of fear. It is those fears and the realities they brought Jane that we will discuss.
