The One Thing You Should be Thankful For This Week ...

national nurses week

... Nurses!

“Do you want to speak to the doctor in charge … or the nurse who actually knows what’s going on?”

Starting tomorrow is National Nurses Week and here at Pulsara, we couldn’t be more proud of our team of in-house nursing clinicians. Warning: Click their headshots only if you are prepared to be humbled by the incredible accomplishments this bunch has achieved!

As a fellow flight medic that works intimately with my flight nurse partner, I couldn’t be in more awe of their scope of practice, nurturing care and commitment to progressive medicine. Nursing continues to be a highly technical field and at Pulsara, we feel truly blessed to work along side our fellow practitioners who’ve committed their lives to caring for the sick and injured.

Are you a nurse? Maybe the following will hit home:

Ethical practice. Quality care.

During National Nurses Week and throughout the year, ANA is proud to celebrate the role nurses play in delivering the highest level of quality care to their patients. The National Nurses Week 2015 theme "Ethical Practice. Quality Care." recognizes the importance of ethics in nursing and acknowledges the strong commitment, compassion and care nurses display in their practice and profession. The theme is an important part of ANA’s 2015 Year of Ethics outreach to promote and advocate for the rights, health and safety of nurses and patients.

My Patient, My Code, My Practice: Ethical Decision-making and Action Thursday, May 7, 2015 – 1:00 p.m. EDTNoon CDT11:00 a.m. MDT10:00 a.m. PDT

How often are you dealing with an ethical situation – and aren't sure what action to take? Do you feel dragged down by the weight of tough decisions that you have to make for your patients? Nurses face ethical dilemmas related to patient care and its practice on a daily basis. Dealing with these ethical situations requires finding the best option and acting to resolve the issue. Success is often dependent on a supportive work environment and without it, nurses often feel a high level of moral distress and fatigue.

National Nurses Week History

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. These permanent dates enhance planning and position National Nurses Week as an established recognition event. As of 1998, May 8 was designated as National Student Nurses Day, to be celebrated annually. And as of 2003, National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week each year. 

Florence Nightingale Pledge:

This modified “Hippocratic Oath” was composed in 1893 by Mrs. Lystra E. Gretter and a Committee for the Farrand Training School for Nurses, Detroit, Michigan. It was called the Florence Nightingale Pledge as a token of esteem for the founder of modern nursing. 

I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.
