In our season finale, Rebecca Love explains why the pandemic is a critical juncture for nurses. She talks about how to “rebrand” nursing and how the actions we take today can ensure that nurses get a seat at the table as decision-makers tomorrow.
With more than 30 years of nursing and health care experience, Lynne Meadows has a wealth of knowledge to share with us. We talk to her about building a school nursing program from the ground up and how school nurses do so much more than hand out Band-Aids and ice. Plus, she gives us a lesson in leadership.
Alison has always been committed to mentoring, but COVID-19 made her see an even greater need for programs that prepare nurses to do their jobs well. With a first job often serving as a make-or-break experience, preceptorship is a critical support—especially amid the chaos of COVID-19.
We talk with Lovoria Williams about structural racism, health equity and what really happens after patients walk out of the clinic or hospital doors. We dig into why communities of color face worse outcomes and higher health risks, and how nurses can provide more culturally competent care.
After co-authoring the report “Post‐Traumatic Stress Disorder in Nurses” earlier this year, Tricia and Michelle became sought-after experts for an emerging disorder known as “pandemic PTSD.” They join us to talk about what it is, how to spot it, the impact of COVID-19 and what to do if you’re experiencing it.
When COVID-19 hit, Jackie O’Halloran was thrown into the ICU with little more than a pep talk. In this episode, we talk about how a lack of preparation failed nurses nationwide, as well as Jackie’s experience publicly calling out administrators for their lack of front-line support.
This time around Nurse Nikki talks about her true passion - maternal health - and how the community she is closest to is being crushed by COVID. A self-dubbed “street nurse,” Nikki is a health support and advocate for many of New Orleans’ unhoused young mothers of color. These women were already in crisis before COVID, but today they need Nikki more than ever before.
Nikki Greenaway, a family NP and maternal health advocate in New Orleans, talks about coming up in nursing and the age-old tension between veteran and new nurses. Plus, how she gained the confidence to pursue an advanced degree and the career path that was right for her — even when other nurses claimed she couldn’t cut it. If you think you know everything, she told us, you’re a dangerous nurse. 
SHIFT Talk brings nurses together to get real about the challenges we’re facing on and off the clock. This season we’re looking at the impacts of COVID-19. Because what could be more important right now? You’ll hear how other nurses are healing, and also how they’re dealing with everyday issues like bullying and burnout. We’re sharing the truth about our experiences and figuring out how to move forward. Together. Talk with us, laugh with us, cry with us. Get courageous with us.
