Delighted to accept the unexpected invitation to become a peer reviewer for the Australian Journal of Advanced #Nursing.

Here's a useful article on becoming a peer reviewer:…

#AdvancingPractice professionals are well placed to undertake this role and it can help to support your own #CPD within all 3 of the 'non-clinical pillars'.

It's very important to remember that there are human beings behind the submitted publication, being respectful is paramount! Your comments could 'make or break' someone's publication journey

My daughter was 5.

Recovering from open heart surgery.

Tentatively walking up the corridor, she met a nurse.

"Come in here," she said.
"I want to show you something."

The nurse led us into the quiet room
That room on every ward with a box of tissues & a picture on the wall...
A tightness in my chest.

So many families whose lives I had changed with bad news broken in rooms like this...

"Come to the window", said Emma, the nurse with a smile.

My daughter tottered over slowly.

I saw it before she did...
The city shone from down below.
An expanse of lights in the darkness.

Emma carefully lifted my daughter & stood her on the sofa so she could see over the windowsill.


A quiet moment of wonder.

"Wow..!" she whispered.

Nova Scotia College of Nurses is the regulator for #Nursing profession in the Province of Nova Scotia, #Canada and in coming weeks will be rolling out another 'first-in-Canada' Nursing Registration and Licensure Process - #CanadaNurses
It is in public knowledge that registration and licensure for Internationally Educated Nurses IENs in Canada is a tedious and difficult process with several bottlenecks.
This has led some provinces to start rethinking the process and find a way to streamline it so that it becomes seamless for applicants. Also, to ensure that IENs in Canada can function to the full extent of their education and competencies.

@writenrun @TimHoustonNS @CH_ABeswick @NS_Justice @nspc I recently heard @CTVSteveMurphy tell @TVeinotteShow that Tim Houston is a lot more like Stephen McNeil than most people realize.

In other words, they're both "my way or the highway" kinda' guys. #WhiteMalePrivilege
@writenrun @TimHoustonNS @CH_ABeswick @NS_Justice @nspc @CTVSteveMurphy @TVeinotteShow @skimber The new Tim Houston has morphed into the old Stephen McNeill: arrogant, angry, self-righteous. (paywalled) #nspoli #nspc…
@writenrun @TimHoustonNS @CH_ABeswick @NS_Justice @nspc @CTVSteveMurphy @TVeinotteShow @skimber Last week, @MLABarbAdams announced plans to build 600 new #LTC beds, doubling the number under development.

Good news, but… Is it playing politics to note that most of those beds will not open until 2025, the year the Tim Houston govt. is scheduled to seek a new mandate? Image

I'm in the ER right now after experiencing vertigo yesterday and again this morning. I literally diagnosed myself because I graduated from WebMD medical school, but I came to make sure there wasn't anything more serious.
They told me it's likely positional vertigo, and they drew a bunch of blood and gave me a banana bag for dehydration. So I'm sitting here waiting for the iv to finish and there is a man in the other room calling everyone "fucking niggers" and demanding a white nurse.
After ten minutes of listening to him repeatedly say nigger, I was ready to rip the iv out and just leave, cause seriously?

Having followed @TrentTelenko deconstruction of logistical doing of the Russian Army, I wanted to take a minute to break down this medical evac aircraft with what is going on.... A 🧵 #Evac #medivac #nursing #Ukraine #medical #transport #Criticalcare
Aeromedical evacuation of sick patients is a logistically complicated task. My direct experience is is slightly over 2 decades and involves pediatric fixed wing, rotor, and ground critical care transport. TO be clear I have performed this level of large scale evac.
Rotor wing transport is ideal in certain circumstances. It is relatively quick and can operate from point to point. ITs disadvantage is that it is unpresurized, has more weather and weight restrictions. The US Military has a robust Casualty evacuation (CASEVAC) or dustoff

😱😱😱War Room and Daily Clout teamed up to report on the Pfizer docs and the data is horrifying 1/🧵⬇️ Image
Pfizer and FDA KNEW BY DEC 2020 the shots waned, there was “vax failure” & “covid” was an effect.

In May 2021 Pfizer knew about the heart damage in kids & FDA rolled out the EUA anyway. Parents weren’t made aware til August.

Pfizer & FDA KNEW MRNA, spike & nanoparticles didn’t stay at the injection site, instead traveling to the bloodstream & to liver, spleen, adrenals, lymph nodes & ovaries.

On #IND2022 we reflect on JBI’s origins as the ‘Joanna Briggs Institute for Evidence Based Nursing’ and the continuing importance, 25 years on, of evidence-based nursing research and clinical practice
#JBIEBHC 🧵 1/7
Quality healthcare services require that clinical decision-making in #nursing is based on evidence, particularly in standardising and aligning healthcare practices with evidence at the point of care. JBI was founded by Emeritus Professor Alan Pearson to address this very need 2/7
‘When I was involved in setting up JBI in the 1990s, #EBM was increasingly adopted across the world, but #EBN was in its infancy. Since then, JBI has played a stellar role in developing great models and systems to support the implementation of evidence into nursing practice' 3/7

#Physicians in #NorthDakota who speak 🗣 out on need for necessary precautions have been ostracized and dismissed. #NorthDakota lost 3 state health directors in 1st months of the #pandemic. Public health officials have had hands tied. Those who continue to speak out have 1/ Image

This is the NYT piece in which #AHA & #AONL is referencing. As I’ve said, I’m a fan of Robyn Begley she is truly committed to #nursing. But their response is wrong.… @WeNurses #NurseTwitter #ANursesVoice
I know the controversy of this piece seems to be on nurse to patient ratios (which lets be honest have worked well in CA, with the highest patient outcomes in the country in healthcare), but let’s not miss what was said: Today there are MORE NURSES in the US than ever in HISTORY!
Over 5 million to be exact - and only a little more 3 Million of them are practicing today. Why?!? The environments in which nurses are working are unsafe, understaffed & place so much risk on the license of a nurse - that nurses are choosing to no longer work in healthcare.

I would focus on Charge Nurses, Directors of Nursing with Families, who need jobs and would consent to such violations of containment of infection. Dedicated Staff. No mixing of air, meals or walkways. Giving Tip caller immunity would level the playing field. To AC, it’s a ⚽️
I would write a letter to The Licensing Entity and copy each owner of facilities agreeing to engage in unsafe transfers and cohorting infected patients with vulnerable elders in Facilities. The Highest Protected Class.

1| "Physician #burnout is real. The rate of suicide is really high. On top of that, with all the stressors of #Covid, we're hurting & we're afraid to show that we're hurting for fear of repercussions, for fear of being termed weak."

Watch the full video:
2| "It's the mentality of the patient comes first, which is great. But where do the providers come? And maybe that's a paradigm that needs to shift. We need to take care of ourselves. We need to take care of each other so that we can then take care of our patients."

Proud 🤩 to present our preprint on the use of #CO2 monitors in hospital: background, pilot data and protocol for an RCT.
A #COVID19 🧵 @trishgreenhalgh @mjb302
While Belgium is about to become one of the first countries to mandate #CO2monitors in bars, no evidence supports their use, which is particularly problematic in clinical medicine #EBM. How are CO2 levels in hospitals? What does the literature say? @HuffmanLabDU @j_g_allen
Widely varying results have been reported, with values >1000 p.p.m. up to 3000 p.p.m. in low-income setttings vs. excellent values in high-resource settings

If #HealthCare positions itself as public priority number one during a #pandemic, then it goes without saying #nurses in fact perform a critical and central role in delivering said #health care. #NursesWeek2021 #NursesWeek #NursesDay #NursesMonth #Nursing #NurseTwitter #Nurse
By not only advocating for #HealthPromotion in general, but by also educating #patients directly and the public at large of the preventive measures necessary to avoid illness and injury, it's not an exaggeration to call #nurses out as #noble..
...or, at the very least their selfless #professional #nursing pursuits can be considered as such. Conjoined with providing actual #MedicalCare AND assisting with #rehabilitation AND providing emotional & psychological #support AND...
