7. From Direct Care to Leader
Nelda Godfrey., Claire Poague & Christina Phillips
Nurse Leader (2023). 21(2), 146-150.
In this study, we explored nurse leaders’ experiences regarding how their sense of professional identity changed—and how it stayed the same—when moving from the direct care role to leading others. Four themes emerged: (1) One’s Sense of Professional Identity Is Foundational; (2) Professional Identity and Functional Role Work in Tandem; (3) Leading Expands One’s View; (4) We Must Build Bridges.
8. Younger Nurse Leaders Leading Older Nurses
Aydrian Y. DeDiemar
Nurse Leader (2023). 21(2), 151-157.
Nursing professional knowledge is in jeopardy as older, more experienced nurses continue to leave the nursing profession. Conflict in the multigenerational workplace has costly impacts on organizations. Understanding age-inverse leadership (younger nurses supervising more senior nurses) dynamics offers mitigating practices to maintain engagement and knowledge transfer.
9. The Link Between Safety, Quality, and Professional Identity
Beth Cusatis Phillips & Kristen Priddy
Nurse Leader (2023). 21(2), 158-162.
The formation of nurses’ professional identity (PIN) has not been deliberately executed within the profession. However, evidence shows that a well-formed PIN supports growth in the individual and can improve the work environment resulting in safer, quality patient care, as well as increased job satisfaction and retention.
10. Professional Identity in Nursing's Influence on Wellbeing
Julee A. Thompson
Nurse Leader (2023). 21(2), 163-165.
There is a difference between the “doing” of nursing and “being” a nurse. That difference is one's professional identity in nursing. A synthesis of the seminal literature of 2021 was undertaken better to understand the influence of professional identity in nursing.
11. Measuring Professional Identity
Nurse Leader (2023). 21(2), 166-168.
In the past 20 years, professional identity in nursing and scales associated with the term have been difficult and confusing to define. In 2018, a group of nurse leaders sought to define professional identity in nursing and subsequently created a new scale based on that definition. This new Professional Identity in Nursing Scale is currently being psychometrically tested with practicing nurses.
12. Supporting Competency-Based Time-Variable Orientation of Newly Licensed RNs
Nurse Leader (2023). 21(2), 169-173.
The goal of orientation is to ensure that new nurses have the requisite skills for practice readiness. Competency-based, time-variable orientation emphasizes the importance of individualizing the orientation plan to meet the orientee’s learning needs. The Clinical Competency Assessment Rubric (CCAR), adapted from the Lasater Clinical Judgement Rubric, was developed to advance competency-based orientation.

13. Reimagining the future of nursing
Teaching and Learning in Nursing (2022, Apr). 17(2), 153-154.
If you could reimagine nursing, what would it look like to you? Would you continue teaching the way you are today, or would you want to chart a new future? What drives your nursing education practice? Are you focused on traditional measures of success? How much of your practice as a nurse educator finds its grounding in innovation, creativity, and a desire to move beyond the status quo?
14. The Future of Nursing 2020-2030
Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing (2021). 36(4), 323-324.
The vision of the Committee on the Future of Nursing 2020-2030, is “the achievement of health equity in the United States built on strengthened nursing capacity and expertise.” 1 This report calls on all nurses to take more “definitive action on eliminating systemic racism, whether in schools, institutions, or the profession and its associations.” 1 We now have a better understanding of the effect of generations of inequity “associated with racism and bias, socioeconomic status, disabilities, financial poverty, and living in areas with decreased health care access.
15. The Future of Nursing 2020–2030: Charting a path to achieve health equity
Susan B. Hassmiller., & Mary K. Wakefield
Nursing Outlook (2022). 70(6), S1-S9.
The National Academy of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing 2020-2030: Charting a Path to Achieve Health Equity calls for a series of policy reforms to unleash the potential of nurses to play greater roles in advancing health equity. The report recommends that the systems that educate, pay and employ nurses: 1) permanently remove barriers to care; 2) value their contributions; 3) prepare nurses to tackle health equity; and 4) diversify the workforce. The need to fully support nurses is interwoven throughout the report.

16. Promoting health equity with HBCUs: Breaking away from structural racism
Roberta Waite., Jessica Varghese., Yolanda VanRiel., Theresa Smith et al.
Nursing Outlook, 2023-03-01, Volume 71, Issue 2, Article 101913
Major disparities in health outcomes persist. Structural racism undermines efforts to advance health equity. Prioritizing the need for racial and ethnic diversity among nursing leaders.
17. Supporting Health Equity
Nurse Leader (2022, Apr). 20(2), 123-125.
In the summer of 2020, during the height of civil unrest across our nation, the American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) launched the Diversity and Belonging Committee. The position statement reflects AONL’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, and aligns with our 2022 strategic priority to unite nurses to achieve health equity. The guiding principles are a tool for nurse leaders to use in creating environments where all members of the team feel safe and supported.
18. Health systems and health equity: Advancing the agenda
Regina Cunningham., Rosemary C. Polomano., Robin M. Wood & Jaya Aysola
Nursing Outlook (2022, Nov). 70(6), S66-S76.
Despite a compelling body of evidence and decades of policy recommendations, deep inequities in health persist with historically marginalized groups. We propose several focus areas; attention to semantics and concepts, building knowledge of health inequities, redesigning care and transforming cultures, to advance health equity work by health system nurse leaders and clinical nurses.

Primary Health Care. doi: 10.7748/phc.2022.e1777
Published online: 21 September 2022
Malignant pleural effusion is a complication of advanced cancer that causes distressing dyspnoea (breathlessness). An indwelling pleural catheter (IPC) is an option for the management of recurrent effusions.

25. Urgent debate needed on future on vaping in New Zealand – GP
The government says it is unlikely to follow Australia's vaping crackdown - at least this term. The Australian federal government has announced tough new measures in an effort to stop young people vaping. Health Minister Mark Butler said the bright colours, range of flavours, and accessibility had turned a generation of young people into nicotine addicts.
26. Aotearoa New Zealand's fourth wave of Covid-19 and why we should care
28th April 2023
Michael Baker., Jennifer Summers., John Kerr., Nick Wilson
Aotearoa New Zealand (NZ) is experiencing a fourth wave of Covid-19 infection. This conclusion is supported by the increase in self-reported Covid-19 infections, hospitalisations, and virus detections in wastewater. This new wave of infection is an opportunity for health authorities to remind New Zealanders about the benefits of vaccination and the value of measures for reducing transmission to others, notably through self-isolation when sick and ventilation improvements

Françios Olivier., Sally Roberts., Arthur Morris., Kurt Krause., Michael Baker
