The statistic alone can cause distress: One third of newly licensed registered nurses leave the field after just two years. And yes, distress-; moral distress, as it was named by ethicist Andrew Jameton-; is a key culprit in the alarming burnout rate, says Professor Cynda Rushton of the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.
So far, about 150 nurses have volunteered for the Mindful Ethical Practice and Resilience Academy (MEPRA), Rushton's brainchild for helping nurses identify ethical dilemmas, address them, and move on in a healthy manner.

Patient non-adherence can come in many forms: unwillingness to follow a course of therapy, repeated missed appointments, rejecting treatment recommendations, reluctance to take medications, refusal to provide information or chronic late payments. If left unchecked, such conduct may result in litigation. The objective of this presentation is to empower nurses with strategies to not only recognize these patient behaviors but also take steps to reduce the likelihood of malpractice claims. Using selected claim scenarios, RNs and LPNs/LVNs can examine their own current risk control practices in relation to the claims and losses experienced by their peers.
The Biocom Institute held its 10th annual San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering March 4-12, 2018 where more than 65,000 youth and families participated. The community festival aimed to spark the love of science among all residents and showcase the true innovation that San Diego has to offer, not only locally, but on a global scale.
In the last few years, science jobs in the area have grown by more than 20 percent, making San Diego one of the nation’s major destinations for people seeking science careers. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, employment in STEM jobs is expected to grow to more than 9 million by 2022. It is because of this many of San Diego’s leading STEM companies support the festival, as they see the value in fostering the love for science, technology, engineering, and math as well as building the pipeline for a homegrown talent.

A reader submitted a question about her RN license being suspended and wonders what she should do to get her license back.
A suspension of one’s professional nursing license is a serious discipline. Only a revocation is grimmer. Although any professional licensure discipline may present problems, a suspension raises unique complications.

A recent Black Book Research report has shown that almost 90 percent of practices with six or fewer practitioners are not properly using advanced electronic health record (EHR) features like electronic messaging, clinical decision support, interoperability, data sharing and even patient engagement processes. The Black Book survey is no small sample set, either, with almost 19,000 EHR users surveyed for the report.
Autism rates continue to climb in the United States.
About 1.7 percent of children — 1 in 59 — are now believed to have autism spectrum disorder, up from an estimated rate of 1.5 percent in 2016, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said April 26 that some of the increase comes from better identification of autism cases in minority populations.
A novel quantitative cardiac MRI technique called CV MR multitasking enabled accurate diagnosis without requiring patients to hold their breath, researchers reported. According to the researchers, the system was able to detect MI accurately, and could complete three tests in as short as 90 seconds. In addition, they wrote, participants reported that the experience was comfortable because they did not have to hold their breath.
When an unnamed British man recently contracted a form of "super gonorrhea" resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat it, the news spiked concern in doctors and microbiologists worldwide. Clinicians did cure the man's sexually transmitted disease using an antibiotic called ertapenem, but they called the case a "major wake-up call for everybody."
As I was growing up, I thought I understood nursing by watching my mom excel in the profession. But I realized I had a lot more to learn when, as a new nurse, I worked in a dedicated AIDS unit in a Chicago hospital in the 1990s.
At that time — the height of the AIDS crisis in the U.S. — the amount of suffering and death on the unit was overwhelming. I didn’t know how to process losing so many friends and patients.

A recent study indicates a rising adoption in clinical mobility, such as the use of mobile devices like handheld mobile computers, tablets, cordless barcode scanners and mobile printers, in hospitals and clinicians increasingly see mobile devices as improving the quality of patient care and helping to reduce medication administration errors.
Nine in 10 clinicians expect to use a mobile device at the bedside by 2022, according to Zebra Technologies’ 2022 Hospital Vision Study.

Prevalence of migraine among women is about three times that of men, and fluctuations in female sex hormones often play a role in the onset of the condition. Women are particularly vulnerable to migraine during the childbearing years, which are also generally the most active and demanding years of a woman's life.
