Economy will improve & boomers are coming. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:15 RoRod101: Salary for Nurse Educators need to be competitive #RNchat 9/30/2009 13:15 2 of 10 9/30/09 3:44 PM
  3. 3. http://printyourtwitter.com/tweets.html TeriRN: T1 I was lucky that a space opened the yr I started. Otherwise I would have had 2 wait & hope I made it in the next yr. #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:15 medxcentral: Unfortunately, @suzishepherd .. the #nurse educators are working for 30% higher pay in the field. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:16 suzishepherd: #RNchat T1 Our hospital has nurse residency program that provides support & the chance to try out different specialties to find a good fit. 9/30/2009 13:16 rnchat: T1 As a follow-up, for those in facilities, what are your organizations doing to promote nursing externally, at schools, etc.? #RNchat 9/30/2009 13:17 medxcentral: Yep.. @mkopp1 .. I think 60,000 (?) potential #nurses were turned away in '07. Not sure though. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:17 RoRod101: Alot of my graduating students had trouble finding jobs in hospital. I enc them 2 look at other ave 3 hosp closed by in about 2 yrs #RNchat 9/30/2009 13:18 mkopp1: T1 educate on other opportunities available to RNs other than #hospitals, #nursinghomes #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:18 TeriRN: T1 1 hosp in GA used to do internships 4 nurses. I thought it was good. Helped 2C if U were a good fit for them & what U wanted 2 do #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:18 medxcentral: @suzishepherd Kinda-like the GM approach. If, after 60 days, you don't like it... return it. Or, change specialty as the case is. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:19 suzishepherd: @medxcentral #RNchat T1 It's almost always about the money. Hard to say no to more $ these days. Some will teach for love but must pay well. 9/30/2009 13:19 mannabsn: @RoRod101 the student I precepted this past spring said lots of folks from her class were having trouble finding jobs #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:19 rnchat: As a reminder (for search purposes and organizing the chats) please add T1, T2, etc. to the beginning of your tweets on a topic. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:20 medxcentral: Agreed @suzishepherd ... #nurse faculty pay (lack of) is a chronic problem. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:20 mannabsn: maybe not so hard for experienced nurses to find jobs but more difficult to new grads? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:20 mkopp1: I work with a few ppl who are doing the LPN route in order to get into RN school faster by going back right away for their LPN to RN #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:21 3 of 10 9/30/09 3:44 PM

RT @mkopp1: T1 educate on other opportunities available to RNs other than #hospitals, #nursinghomes #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:21 RoRod101: @mannabsn T1 w/ hosp closing it leaves alot of experience nurses without jobs. Exp nurse are more appealing & require less training. #RNchat 9/30/2009 13:22 rnchat: @mannabsn That's what some reports are saying - grads having a hard time. Creates a crazy roller-coaster cycle longer-term. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:22 medxcentral: But... what happens when the #hospital census picks back up? Who will care for the patients? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:23 medxcentral: And.. if we get universal coverage... census is going to pick up .. big time... agreed? What then? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:24 TeriRN: I'm seeing where specilaty nurses R having trouble. I can't get on a med/surg floor b/c I have done hospice 4 the last 6 yrs. #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:24 InfusionNurse: T1 recession affected nursing, no one hiring new grads.costly to train than experienced nurses.Those near retirement r still working #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:24 rnchat: @medxcentral Welcome to the world of nursing :) Who picks up? Nurses. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:24 suzishepherd: #RNchat T1 @ a C/S met Nsg students that didn't know about Twitter and its potential for helping them as nsg students. Gave brief lesson. 9/30/2009 13:25 medxcentral: Phil.. I'm wondering where our #hcsm #hospital friends are in this convo. Would be great input as long as non-marketing. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:25 mkopp1: @creature57 via Follow a ton of RNs with the push of a button - http://bit.ly/17xJtt #RNchat 9/30/2009 13:25 medxcentral: @rnchat This is why I'm such a fan of nursing and nurses. Real challenges in play which need creative resolution. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:26 rnchat: Shoulder tap: Next topic in about 5 minutes. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:26 2healthguru: @medxcentral: Lurking! #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:27 OncologyNursing: Keep in mind that, as length of survival for #cancer patients increases, so will the need for #oncology nurses #rnchat #RNchat 9/30/2009 13:27 medxcentral: @TeriRN Transitioning from hospice to acute care setting is sometimes difficult even when jobs are plenty. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:27 4 of 10 9/30/09 3:44 PM
  5. 5. http://printyourtwitter.com/tweets.html RoRod101: @medxcentral T1 Healthcare is moving in the direction of prevention as oppose to acute tx.

Solution? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:28 ONSmark: T1 Surprising (trouble getting jobs) per Buerhaus stats "126,000+ nursing positions are vacant" & "500,000 positions by 2025" etc. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:29 suzishepherd: @mkopp1 #RNchat Wow, thanks.

Enjoy your day - next chat will be announced soon. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:31 TeriRN: @RoRod101 hope to see you next time this is a great group. #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:31 medxcentral: Oh.. I agree, @TeriRN (though I'm not an expert) .. but for whatever reason, admins don't agree. Why? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:32 rnchat: T2 Clinical Collaboration (or outside of clinical) - How effective have your collaboration experiences been? What tools could help? #RNchat 9/30/2009 13:33 suzishepherd: @TeriRN #RNchat T1 My experience with hospice nurses is they are among the best at being an instrument of healing. Crazy not to value that. 9/30/2009 13:33 ONSmark: @medxcentral 2008: Buerhaus et al. The future of the nursing workforce in the United States: Data, trends and implications. (J&B) #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:33 medxcentral: .@philbaumann I say... Attn: #nurses... think of this chat like Thanksgiving dinner with a 5 of 10 9/30/09 3:44 PM
  6. 6. http://printyourtwitter.com/tweets.html large family. You've gotta speak up. :-) #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:33 TeriRN: @medxcentral I'd be interested in knowing why IC a + in that my time management skills R pretty good since I have 2 count in traffic #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:34 ONSmark: @medxcentral What's a better (more recent) source?

I have not had time to search. Shoot.. I shouldn't be here right now. :-) .. share if you find it. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:36 TeriRN: @suzishepherd Oh thanks. And I agree. While keeping comfortable 4 one dx, I'm critical thinking about another & how 2 help pt. #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:37 medxcentral: @rnchat I know.. I'm hoping to chat them up and get'em going here. Luckily, today's topic is a HOT spot for me. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:37 rnchat: In case T2 slide by you, here it is again: - http://bit.ly/2KeVp0 #RNchat 9/30/2009 13:37 suzishepherd: #RNchat T2 Took part in Vermont Oxford Network's NIC/Q project. Changed the way our NICU works tgr. Titles left @ the door. Parents on team 9/30/2009 13:38 ONSmark: T2 @InfusionNurse Agreed. I'm w/ ONS but I use INS standards/articles nearly every day. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:38 Geek2Nurse: @medxcentral So we should reject universal coverage so they can't come to the hospital & raise our census levels? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:39 TeriRN: @InfusionNurse T2 also need 2 have them see you as a professional & nurses to see themselves as professionals. #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:39 Geek2Nurse: @medxcentral Universal coverage won't create new sick people out of thin air. They're already out there not being cared for. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:40 medxcentral: Hello @Geek2Nurse ... absolutely not! I'm just trying to figure out where the #nurses are going to come from. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:40 medxcentral: Right @Geek2Nurse ... they are not getting care and are not at the hospital. What happens when they are? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:41 6 of 10 9/30/09 3:44 PM
  7. 7. http://printyourtwitter.com/tweets.html TeriRN: T2 I can see where SM can be of benefit for collaboration, but then we get in2 the HIPAA issues again. #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:42 medxcentral: I'm one of the uninsured. I'd love to have coverage and would be grateful for the care of #nurses when I go to the #hospital. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:42 OncologyNursing: @Geek2Nurse @medxcentral I think word is spreading among youth that nursing jobs are available. School funding is part of the issue. #RNchat 9/30/2009 13:43 Sumpinelse: #RNchat @medxcentral census goes up staffing remains unchanged, case loads increase quality (???????) 9/30/2009 13:43 mkopp1: @medxcentral @Geek2Nurse ... they are getting care (in ER) just not f/u care like they need or meds that they need at home #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:43 InfusionNurse: Same here, we use ur a lot 2! RT @ONSmark: T2 @InfusionNurse Agreed. Im w/ ONS but I use INS standards/articles nearly every day. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:43 rnchat: @TeriRN Yes, that's the hippo. But perhaps there are workarounds. Nothing's impossible. If you can think it, you can sink it. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:44 mkopp1: RT @Sumpinelse: #RNchat @medxcentral census goes up staffing remains unchanged, case loads increase quality (???????)-good point #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:45 medxcentral: RT @rnchat: [Love that!] If you can think it, you can sink it. #fb #quote #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:46 TeriRN: @rnchat This is where we need to get the geek nurses involved. So that SM and HIPAA can co-exist. =) #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:46 suzishepherd: #RNchat T2 Helped that VON had established culture of leaving titles at door. No one pulled rank. This was key. Shared goals. Worked tgr.. 9/30/2009 13:47 TeriRN: @mkopp1 It also doesn't help when hospitals can still dictate pt load. That is 1 area of reform I'd like to see. #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:47 medxcentral: All reports indicate #hospital census will go up. Even b4 discussion of universal care, ie; boomers. Now what do we do?!?!? Ideas? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:48 mkopp1: RT @TeriRN: @mkopp1 It also doesnt help when hospitals can still dictate pt load. That is 1 area of reform Id like to see.~RIght On! #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:48 philbaumann: RT @TeriRN: @rnchat This is where we need to get the geek nurses involved. So that SM and HIPAA can co-exist. =) #RNChat #hchit 9/30/2009 13:49 7 of 10 9/30/09 3:44 PM
  8. 8. http://printyourtwitter.com/tweets.html medxcentral: And.. I do not believe heavier patient load is the answer. We need the capacity to educate more #nurses. That's the core. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:50 InfusionNurse: go into panic hiring frenzy..LOL!! RT @medxcentral: All reports indicate #hospital census will go up. Now what do we do?!?!? Ideas? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:50 medxcentral: RT @TeriRN: This is where we need to get the geek nurses involved. So that SM and HIPAA can co-exist. =) [Know any?] #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:50 suzishepherd: RT @medxcentral: I do not believe heavier patient load is the answer. We need the capacity to educate more #nurses. That's the core. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:51 rnchat: Follow-up T2 - If there was one technology you'd name that could improve collaboration what would it look like (if not around now)? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:51 medxcentral: Ah.. @InfusionNurse .. you can't hire thin air. If there's no nurses... now what? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:52 medxcentral: As you can see.. this topic is near and dear to my heart. I'm very passionate about the #nursing shortage. Been following for years. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:53 mkopp1: I believe EMR is a start. Get a bad report from another staff dept, look up the info yourself. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:54 InfusionNurse: remember the nrsg shortage and what creative hiring ideas were done? RT @medxcentral: Ah..If theres no nurses... now what? #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:55 medxcentral: T2-b: #SocialMedia in general. "Two brains are better than one." We'll create the answers together...somehow. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:55 rnchat: We're coming up on the final bell in a few minutes. #RNchat 9/30/2009 13:55 TeriRN: F/UT2 It would need 2 B something like Twitter. Would B able 2 get info from others across world esp on rare dx. #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:56 mkopp1: RT @medxcentral: T2-b: #SocialMedia in general. "Two brains are better than one." Well create the answers together...somehow. :) #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:56 TeriRN: RT @rnchat: Were coming up on the final bell in a few minutes.// Nooooooo can't believe it's been an hour. =( #RNChat 9/30/2009 13:57 InfusionNurse: yup RT @medxcentral: T2-b: #SocialMedia in general. "Two brains are better than one." Well create the answers together...somehow. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:57 medxcentral: .@InfusionNurse Creative #hiring / #staffing only works if there's someone available for hire. 8 of 10 9/30/09 3:44 PM
  9. 9. http://printyourtwitter.com/tweets.html #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:58 ONSmark: T2 Agree with EMR suggestion for improving collaboration. Would elaborate but final bell's almost here! #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:58 rnchat: @TeriRN I'd agree. A future topic will be how Enterprise versions of Twitter (Sci Fi stuff right now) could shape collaboration. #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:59 medxcentral: Before it's over.. Thank you all for putting up with my high energy level. I'm always out here. Feel free to reach out. Ciao! #rnchat 9/30/2009 13:59 medxcentral: @rnchat GREAT topic today. Thanks for the opportunity.

Thank you for ur flexibility! 9/30/2009 14:01 Sumpinelse: Thank you for allowing me to "lurk." #RNchat 9/30/2009 14:01 TeriRN: T2 EMR is a start, but needs to be universal. Everyone uses the same system. Collaboration is beneficial outside of own setting IMHO #RNChat 9/30/2009 14:01 mkopp1: Nice chatting with everyone! #rnchat 9/30/2009 14:01 InfusionNurse: If u build it, they will come. It worked in the past..RT @medxcentral: only works if theres someone available for hire. #rnchat 9/30/2009 14:02 rnchat: @Sumpinelse We prefer the term "stalk" :) #rnchat 9/30/2009 14:02 Sumpinelse: @RNchat #RNchat I will remember that for future meetings LOL. 9/30/2009 14:03 2healthguru: @RNchat how 'bout medical staff/nursing/admin/governance, turf wars and clinical quality imperative - room for improvement? #RNchat 9/30/2009 14:03 suzishepherd: #RNchat Night all! 9/30/2009 14:03 TeriRN: @2healthguru Sounds like a topic we can spend the whole hour+ on #RNChat 9/30/2009 14:04 9 of 10 9/30/09 3:44 PM
