The importance of nursing to patient well-being is a time honored concept, but often difficult to measure. If it were so easy to quantify, we would stop debating “the business case for nursing” and trying to prove the “value of nursing” in hard dollars. We would clearly know the nursing return on investment, or ROI.

The mindful way we process patient status is what differentiates nursing; we use intuition as intervention, the ability to highly integrate nuances others might not see.

The perceptive acts of nursing, those invisible talents that are best displayed through our professional discipline, clinical knowledge, and engagement with our patients, can only be fully realized and become more visible when we are at the bedside — the best place for critical caring.

Making decisions based on a sound foundation of ethics is an essential part of nursing practice in all specialties and settings. In recognition of the impact ethical practice has on patient safety and the quality of care, the ANA has designated 2015 as the “Year of Ethics,” highlighted by the release of a revised code of ethics for the profession.
I encourage you and your organization to adopt and implement the new ethics blueprint to create and support ethically principled, health sustainable work environments, and contribute to the best possible patient, family and community outcomes!

Pressure ulcers are painful, life-threatening, and costly… as high as $11 billion dollars annually in the United States. Medicare and private insurers know they’re preventable… and they’re reimbursing us less and less. So the pressure’s on to reduce pressure ulcers!

The ultimate goal here is to start putting education into action. Ask yourself, What are you doing that works? Let’s spread what’s working, and stop what’s not! With the pressure that’s on us……there’s no time to waste! Our patients deserve nothing less!
