Last week ANA\C Lobbyist extraordinaire Roxanne Gould and Members Annie Tat and Jennifer DeLugach attended the CA Women Lead legislative Reception, where they honored 55 fierce and fearless women serving as Chief of Staff in the California State Legislature. These incredible leaders are not only breaking ground for women in the workplace, they are 24/7 stewards of the legislation that drives progress forward in the Golden State.
Our big thanks to Roxanne for going above-and-beyond her lobbyist duties, and big thanks also to Annie and Jennifer proudly representing nurses and ANA\C.
My name is Kalayvanie Naidoo and I am a student at the University of Phoenix working on a PhD nursing degree. I am conducting data collection for my research study, entitled A Causal-Comparative Study of Nursing Leadership in Professional Nurses’ Associations (PNAs). The purpose of this research study is to compare and measure the leadership characteristics of leaders and non-leaders in professional nurses’ associations (PNAs). I believe the benefit of your participation will develop new knowledge on the leadership characteristics of non-leaders and expand upon the existing knowledge of leaders.
This research study requires you to complete the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ), which will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes, and a 3-minute demographic survey.

In its Fiscal Year 2021 budget, released Feb. 10, the Trump administration proposes steep cuts to and the elimination of essential nursing programs under the Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Education.
Under the new budget, the majority of Title VIII Nursing Workforce Development Programs would be eliminated, with the exception of the Nurse Corps program, which would receive $83.135 million. Additionally, the National Institutes of Health would face a nearly $3 billion proposed cut. This includes cutting the National Institute of Nursing Research's budget down to $156.804 million in FY 2021. These reduced funding levels are about a nine percent overall cut to HHS.
As an outbreak of a novel coronavirus has swept through Hubei province, China, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been preparing for its worst case scenario — a widespread outbreak of illnesses in the United States.
"Right now we're in an aggressive containment mode," CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield told CNN's Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta in an interview on Feb. 13.
"We don't know a lot about this virus," he said. "This virus is probably with us beyond this season, beyond this year, and I think eventually the virus will find a foothold and we will get community-based transmission."
The response to the 2019 measles outbreaks in the United States cost roughly $42 million, based on estimates outlined in a recent study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases, although researchers said this is likely an underestimate.

As a physician or administrator, it's crucial that you keep patient transactions and data easily shareable and totally secure. Blockchain technology may be just the right way for your organization to do it. In a blockchain system, data is linked in a segmented system that makes for ease of sharing, eliminates the risk of inaccurate data being kept in a patient ledger, and automatically distributes to a set network of recipients. Blockchain is currently being used most in healthcare payment applications. However, as it matures further, it is being adapted for virtually every healthcare need.

The pressures on new graduate nurses to transition from education to practice are often too much to take, causing RNs meant to fuel nursing’s workforce pipeline in the coming decades to question their career choice.
One thing that can ease the transition and help retain new nurses is nurse precepting, said Solimar Figueroa, PhD, RN, MHA, P-PCA, a clinical collaborator for the American Academy for Preceptor Advancement.

If you are sometimes less than careful with your prescription medications and have young kids at home, a new study shows how easily tragedies can occur.
Researchers found that young children getting into medicines leads to about 400,000 poison center calls and 50,000 emergency department visits in the United States each year.
In more than half of these cases, medications have been removed from child-resistant containers by an adult, according to the analysis of calls to five poison control centers.

A new group of antibiotics with a unique approach to attacking bacteria has been discovered, making it a promising clinical candidate in the fight against antimicrobial resistance.
The newly-found corbomycin and the lesser-known complestatin have a never-before-seen way to kill bacteria, which is achieved by blocking the function of the bacterial cell wall. The discovery comes from a family of antibiotics called glycopeptides that are produced by soil bacteria.
