About Us

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.

Racism: Health Impacts on People of Color

Detail Description (1000 Characters): This has been a week of explosions, grief and mourning in my State, Minnesota, the country and the world on top of a pressure cooker of 3 months under the threat of COVID-19 changing every aspect of our lives. I simply cannot move on without addressing it. I have invited my friend Dr. Daihnia Dunkley, who was on the show in September to discuss Race Disparity in Healthcare. She will join me to attempt to put some perspective on how we are in this place in time and space that the world is in today. Dr. Dunkley passionately advocates for systematic improvement in diversity & inclusion within nursing and for the eradication racial health disparities related to Black maternal health outcomes. Join us as we discuss the reality of applying unremitting pressure to people unable to control major portions of their life and how that erupts at a crucial time.

COVID-19: Automated Screening Program to the Rescue

Lisa Romano, CNO of Cipherhealth, my guest for May 18, 2020 and I met in the Fall of 2019, long before anyone was even thinking or a novel coronavirus. When we were actually able to connect for the show, it became apparent that Lisa’s Career led her to the right place, right time to play a shero role in the COVID-19 crisis. She had been working with Hospitals for years to create streamlined IT processes in rooming, moving/discharging, cleaning, and re-rooming patients. Little did she know, having this knowledge as well as newer work, freeing nurses from needing to report results of tests & discharge instructions to patients, put her hospitals in a perfect position to quickly realize the size and spread of the coronavirus. This data allowed them to make plans to prepare for the coming coronavirus. Lisa Romano brings over 30 years of clinical experience (CCU), hospital administration of patient flow and transfer center, and IT strategy to her role. Join us for this amazing episode.

Somatic Functional Therapy (SFT): The Best Stress and Pain Treatment, You’ve Never Heard of!

Pain and stress relief programs have probably been around since nearly the beginning of time. However the problems still plague most people around the world. The COVID-19 Crisis has only added to the stress and then pain that people are experiencing. I am one of those individuals, dealing with pain almost as long as I can remember. So, while attending a health conference in January, where my guests, today, were demonstrating the effects of Somatic Functional Therapy (SFT), I was the first to raise my hand to be a recipient. My pain is chronic, deep interacting within several body areas. At best, I have been able to diminish the pain enough to tolerate it. So, I was SHOCKED at the level of relief I received from about 5-10 minutes of seemingly minor treatment. Join me with Ramon Nunez, PhD, Alba Rodriguez, PhD and Joseph Sliwkoski, MD to discuss this phenomenal therapy.

Nursing Leadership: Back to the Future

Margaret Erickson, a nationally celebrated nurse leader with future plans of what Nursing Leadership will become as it creates a MAJOR paradigm shift from the medical model of illness & disease, to the nursing model of health, wellness, & wellbeing/wellbecoming. To a lay person, this may not sound different, but in healthcare it is NIGHT and DAY different. With the Medical model (while doctors want to help their patients to be healthy), their focus is on diagnosis & treatment, once someone IS ill. Nurses are no longer handmaidens to doctors. If you have not been treated by a nurse lately, they are professionals (often with doctorates), who work WITH doctors, as equals,0 to find the best path forward to support the patient’s health until disease presents, then return the patient to health. Nursing education needs to change for nurses to truly become leaders at the national table. The paradigm shift change in education must occur to support nurses as transformational leaders.

Nursing Leadership: Back to the Future

COVID-19: The Time for Resilience is NOW!

Today's guests, Lyn McCright and Teresa Walding (both with Advancing Nurse Coaching) are joining me today as a follow-up to their previous discussion on February 17, 2020 regarding Resilience Paradigms. At that time COVID-19 was barely on the radar and now we are all overwhelmed with the issue. It has taken an especially large toll on nurses and other healthcare workers on the front lines of the Pandemic in the hospitals and clinics in "Hot Zone" areas like San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, New Orleans, Florida, Chicago, Arizona, Texas and more adding all the time. Lyn and Teresa will talk about the innate resilience we each have and can tap into at any time of our choosing. We will go deep on some of the fears, anger and previous unresolved crises that keep us from remembering the safe place we each have developed within us as we have matured. We each need to tap this resource NOW and help those around us to do the same. Join us for a message of Hope and Light!

COVID-19: The Time for Resilience is NOW!

COVID-19: HC Crisis Management Done Right

We have seen disastrous displays of pandemic mismanagement this year. There are many examples of managing crisis in an exemplary way with incredible teamwork & camaraderie by the healthcare (s)heroes of the coronavirus epidemic. GOOD leadership does NOT start when the crisis hits us in the face. It starts years ahead by building a 2-way culture of good relationships, honesty & trust between admin. & staff. Culture is shaped by the collective attitudes & behaviors of the people who work there. It does NOT change until people change. The ultimate leadership challenge is helping people make positive changes based on their OWN personal values. Leaders must design their Invisible Architecture of core values, corporate culture, & workplace attitude as they do the physical design of bricks & mortar. My guest, Joe Tye, has written a book on how to do this: The Florence Prescription, a fictional story of Florence Nightingale helping a modern-day hospital build a positive culture of ownership

COVID-19: Insights from Healthcare Workers

In the COVID-19 Pandemic in the USA there are two fights going on. One against a virulent and dangerous new coronavirus and the other on behalf of the safety and protection of “essential” workers across the country. The disease is doing an exceptional job at its mission: to infect and kill as many hosts as possible. The cities, states, hospital administrations and political leaders are, to a large extent, failing miserably at their mission: To protect each and every doctor, nurse, hospital employee, pharmacist & tech, military, emergency workers of all kinds, public employees, grocery & other clerks, gas station attendants and bus & truck drivers with the proper protective equipment to allow them to do their jobs in relative safety. My guests, Darlene Nelson RN and Dr. Juan Nieto of Texas wish to share of insights of healthcare workers.

COVID-19: Insights from Healthcare Workers

COVID-19: Epidemiology in a nutshell - What Now?

Dr. Stacen Keating is a former guest from Once a Nurse, Always a Nurse. She is a Nursing Professor at NYU. She contacted me over the weekend with stories & messages from healthcare workers, mostly nurses, who desperately want to get their message out to the world. She and her colleague, Dr. Gary, Yu, Epidemiologist of NYU will join me on this episode to, FIRST and FOREMOST talk about the need to save lives, including frontline workers and SECONDLY why we should work collaboratively with China and the east to help do this. It is truly how the world has survived/recovered from War, Starvation and Pestilence since the beginning of time—Collaboration, WIN-WIN. Let’s bring it back out of mothballs and use it again. We need to be scientific and open to ALL solutions in order to end the pandemic in a way that takes in all available evidence and previous learning.

COVID-19 Treatment: What Do We Already Have?

In 2012, Dr. Howard Robins and Dr. Robert Rowen traveled to Sierra Leone, West Africa, during the Ebola crises to demonstrate an IV Ozone Therapy to administer to patients stricken with Ebola. They showed that this simply, inexpensive, effective treatment can make a difference with many infectious diseases, for which we currently have no vaccines or treatments. These doctors will share with the Once a Nurse audience what such a tool could do in treating the COVID-19 pandemic facing us today. Some form of Ozone Treatment has been around since 1854. Why have we not heard of this treatment before? Could it be that this is a treatment that cannot be patented and therefore cannot earn exorbitant amounts for Pharma organizations? Dr. Robins and Rowen have a paper called, A Plausible “Penny” Costing Effective Treatment for Corona Virus - Ozone Therapy, is about to be published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology. Join us March 23, 2020 at 12 N, CDT.
