    Update | 87: Tackling Black Men’s Health

    Despite decades of growing interest in improving Black men’s health and the health disparities affecting them, the health of Black men consistently ranks lowest across nearly all groups in the United States. In this update, we’re reconnecting with Julius Johnson, DNP, RN, FNP-BC, a Nurse Practitioner, educator, and football coach, for an update on how he’s keeping youth athletes safe on the playing fields, and resharing the Stories from Heart of Health event held in New York City in the middle of the U.N. General Assembly. Tune in to hear his perspective on supporting Black men’s health, as he describes meeting them where they feel most confident – barbershops, sports fields, and churches – and embracing any event or touchpoint as a teaching moment – like the cardiac arrest suffered mid-game by NFL player Damar Hamlin as an opportunity to demonstrate how to perform CPR and open a door to deeper conversations that help men of all ages take better care of themselves both on and off the field.

    100: The Untold Story of the Black Angels

    100: The Untold Story of the Black Angels

    From our first episode, SEE YOU NOW has been focused on trailblazers, changemakers and pioneers, and our 100th episode features a nurse who embodies these values. Virginia Allen, LPN is the last known living Black Angel, part of a group of Black nurses recruited from the Jim Crow South whose tireless efforts led to a cure for tuberculosis, a disease responsible for nearly 18% of New York City deaths in the early 1900s. This story follows the Black Angels who, for twenty years, risked their lives working under dreadful conditions while caring for the city’s poorest and played a major role in desegregating New York City hospitals along with nursing practice, education, and professional associations including the American Nurses Association.
     
    In this episode, recorded live at the 2023 DNPs of Color conference, Virginia and  Maria Smilios, author of the new book, ‘The Black Angels: The Untold Story of the Nurses who Helped Cure Tuberculosis’ share their story with Nurses You Should Know creators Joanna Seltzer Uribe and Ravenne Aponte to the next generation of nursing innovators and trailblazers.

    99: Healing the Healers

    A choir for nurses, art tours for clinicians, on-demand meditation for all healthcare workers. In this episode, we’re sharing a panel discussion recorded live at Aspen Ideas: Health, hosted by Jon LaPook, MD and featuring Winnie Mele, RN, David Ko, and Eric Wei, MD, to learn how clinical settings are testing support and wellness interventions to boost emotional health and tame the widespread stress and burnout among nurses, physicians and all healthcare providers that intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to strain so many. Clinical staff are reporting remarkable improvements in morale and motivation from these creative approaches. Effective patient care is best delivered by a compassionate care team, and that means designing programs to heal the healers.

    98: Stories of Risk and Innovation from Magnet

    98: Stories of Risk and Innovation from Magnet

    Our stories are incredibly powerful. Stories are part of who we are as nurses -- it’s how we gather evidence, unravel medical mysteries, distract people from unpleasant procedures, how we build trust and rapport, and humanize individual and collective experiences. Research indicates that whether the story is a happy one or a hard one -- just knowing the stories of pivotal life experiences helps marshal psychological strengths.
     
    In this episode, recorded in front of a live audience in Chicago at the 2023 American Nurses Credentialing Center National Magnet Conference® and Pathway to Excellence Conference®, nurses shared – in stories and verse – identifying gaps in care, the problems needing attention and solutions, and the partnerships that make us better. Featured in this episode are nurses Jean Ross, RN; Jodi Traver, PhD, RN; Jasmine Bhatti, PhD, RN; Mary Anne Schultz, PhD, MBA, MSN, RN, FAAN; Joey Ferry, BSN, RN; Taofiki Gafar Schaner, MSN, RN; Lindsey Roddy, PhD(c), RN; Stephanie Martinez, MBA, RN; Lorie Hassel-Chuang, BSN, RN, RDH;

    Listen Again | 80: Health Starts With Housing

    Listen Again | 80: Health Starts With Housing

    Homelessness across the U.S. is on the rise. The National Alliance to End Homelessness reports the number of unsheltered and chronically homeless individuals and families has climbed ~6% annually since 2017, and an estimated 582,462 people experienced homelessness across America in 2022. Advocacy groups and researchers say a big driving force is the decline of affordable housing, a problem decades in the making but one that has grown significantly worse in the past few years. And when people lose their homes, housing and shelter, their lives, health, and safety become far more complex and at risk.
     
    In observance of Homelessness Awareness Month, we’re listening again to this important episode centered on the stories, proven solutions, and care models that are meaningfully improving the health and lives of our most complex community members. Nurse Lauran Hardin, MSN, CNL, FNAP, FAAN shares how inviting a broad range of community agencies to collaboratively address and solve complex situations and care needs improves housing access, reduces avoidable and unnecessary hospital visits, supports behavioral health, and provides the deep satisfaction healthcare professionals experience when people get the full range of health, housing, and human services they need for healthy, joyful, connected lives.

Father Hanscom ,

This month’s inservice

Eager to share with my colleagues for our monthly educational discussion.

Anna- nurse for nurses ,

Thank you for what you do for our profession!

I came across SEE YOU NOW podcast after frantically searching -nurse, money, finance, budget. As a nurse manger, I knew this has always been my weak spot and on this particular morning I left a finance meeting feeling deflated! I knew I wanted to learn more about how to “manage a business and maintain the human connection”. I feel Shawna does a great job of showing that you can do both… you can advocate for nursing while being successful and fiscally responsible. Shawna, Thank you for sharing your love for nursing and nurses. Thank you for showing nurses, it is okay to talk about things we are not always comfortable talking about! You rock! -Anna

So Many Great Business Leadership Lessons

I’m not in the nursing field but I’m learning so much about how I want to run my business listening to this podcast. Shawna asks really thought-provoking questions. And her guests always give great advice that can be applied to any industry. Highly recommend!
