The Fight for Nurses Week

It took around 40 years for nurses to receive national recognition, a fight that began in 1953 with a proposal for a Nurse Day. Several attempts were made throughout the following decades, including proposals for National Nurses Week in October and National Registered Nurse Day. A breakthrough came in 1974 when the US established National Nurses Week following the International Council of Nurses' declaration of International Nurses Day. Nurses continued their efforts, and by 1993, May 6–12 was permanently designated as National Nurses Week.

Nursing Home Pushback

The Biden administration's proposal for minimum staffing levels in nursing homes has received extensive feedback, highlighting issues like neglect and medication mismanagement. Horror stories include a resident resorting to using a bullhorn to get attention from nurses, staff reportedly tossing out medications because they didn’t have the time to dispense them to residents, and more. Despite intense industry resistance, CMS is moving forward with the plan, aiming to improve care standards.

Keys to Retention

Improving pay and nurse-to-patient ratios are vital steps to fixing our nurse retention crisis, but new research suggests the relationship dynamics between nurses and leadership, peers, and patients may be an unrecognized factor. A report from the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing’s R3 initiative revealed that while so-called transactional interventions like compensation, improved schedules, and professional development opportunities are crucial, the need for deeper connections and understanding between nurses and key stakeholders is being overlooked.

Credit Score CPR

Your credit score is the pulse of your financial health, and tracking it is as non-negotiable as Q4H vitals. In the eyes of lenders, the higher the score, the more financially stable you are as a borrower. This means lower interest rates and higher credit limits!Β 

A credit score over 700 is generally considered good. Experian–one of three major US credit bureaus–explains in this post what your credit rating means to financial institutions and offers suggestions for how to improve it.Β 

If your credit score could use resuscitation, don't worry! The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau provides guidance on how to improve your credit in this article. You can even sign up for free credit monitoring services that alert you to changes on your credit report.

Don’t let your credit score flatline–join here and let us help you bring it back to life! Monitor your credit score and find ways to increase it!
