    Unpacking Nursing Informatics: How One Career Path Can Expand Your Circle of Care

    Unpacking Nursing Informatics: How One Career Path Can Expand Your Circle of Care

    The critical need for experienced nurses in the field of informatics—particularly in the growing age of AI and IT influence on medicine and patient care.

    The complex field of Nursing Informatics is defined as taking “the clinical and the technical languages of health and translating them into one.” Nursing Informaticists hold the power to:


    Utilize and expand nurses' influence and impact from floor-specific to a wider community of care
    Leverage technology and clinical expertise in order to maintain the focus on patient safety
    Apply data to stem the nation’s opioid crisis
    Expand outreach to underserved patient populations in the community

    The panel will relate under-reported, real-world cases to highlight how attainment of an advanced degree in Nursing Informatics uniquely equips the mid-career nurse to join an area of the nursing profession that is revolutionizing the redesign of healthcare in the United States.

    This webinar was recorded on May 27th 2021. Thank you to our sponsor WGU.

    Rethinking Nurse Staff Shortages

    Rethinking Nurse Staff Shortages

    With the nurse shortage at crisis levels even before the pandemic hit, what are the flaws or shortcomings of conventional approaches to staffing that keep nurse leaders chronically in “firefighter mode”? While a great majority of healthcare organizations cite nurse retention as a key strategic imperative, only a little over a third of them have actually implemented a formal retention strategy. Why isn’t nurse retention more reflected in actual operational practices or planning?Join Bryan Dickerson, Senior Director of Healthcare Workforce Solutions at Hospital IQ, Shawna Gunn, Manager of Operations at MercyOne, Des Moines, and Danielle Bowie, DNP, RN, NE-BC, Vice President of Nursing Workforce Development at Bon Secours Mercy Health, Cincinnati, OH, as we discuss:


    What the healthcare industry can learn from other industries
    What are the opportunities and benefits of predictive analytics that can be leveraged to alleviate the nurse leaders’ constant staffing chase
    See how leveraging technology can streamline both communications and preplanning, enabling nurse leaders to make proactive adjustments faster and more efficiently

    Tragedy in Tennessee - Could this Happen to You? RaDonda Vaught Case Panel Discussion

    Tragedy in Tennessee - Could this Happen to You? RaDonda Vaught Case Panel Discussion

    The nursing community was shocked and saddened with the conviction of former RN RaDonda Vaught for criminally negligent homicide and abuse of an impaired adult because she mistakenly administered vecuronium rather than Versed to a 75-year-old woman awaiting an imaging procedure. The patient died.

    Nurses are at the sharp end of errors, the point where the error reaches the patient, and are therefore vulnerable to blame. How can the healthcare systems better protect caregivers at the sharp end and the patients in their care from harm?

    The panel discusses key issues related to the Vaught case, including the impact on the reporting of near misses and adverse events, nursing retention, and public perception about medical error. The immediate, short- and long-term impact of serious adverse effects on everyone involved will be outlined.
