March 16 2012 Nursing Newsletter


Hello Fellow Nurses and Those Who Love and Care About Nurses!

Thank you to the many of you who sent me emails this past week concerning my family emergency, your kindness and caring are much appreciated.

This week's new article is on Advance Directives and patient education. So many of our patients do not know what a living will is or they may also have very distorted notions about what making and having advance directives mean. Some cultures may view discussion of death as inviting death to come into the home, other times is may be old-fashioned fear of dying. Nursing professionals can make a big difference regarding this, but first we must understand what a living will and advance directives are.

Please enjoy this newest article:

Advance Directives Patient Education

Patient have the right to accept or refuse care. Unfortunately many patients don't know about make care decisions through the use of advance directives. Come share in a discussion of what advance directives are, implementation and ideas for patient education. Help empower your patients!

March is a time of year which is difficult for me. My mother died when I was 18 years old and she died in March. So rather than feeling self-pity and spending the day crying, I have decided to do something wonderful on the day. I'm going to a peace garden and plant a rose bush.

What types of things do you do to deal with grief? How can we help our patients, our family and friends, and ourselves to have "good" grief instead of negative and overbearing grief?

I'd love to hear from you about this week's article, the questions I have above, or just to say hi! I love hearing from you and hope that you will feel save to share with me as well.
