MORE MEN MOVE TO NURSING CAREERS

Brian Medley, a nurse at Lurie Children’s Hospital, and Zain Rehman, a nurse at Advocate Christ Medical Center Intensive Care Unit, talked about their career path.

Nursing has historically been a female-dominated field, but men are increasingly pursuing the career. The percentage of men in nursing is still small, only about 9 percent to 10 percent,

A nursing career holds many advantages for men, such as highly diverse patient care environments, career stability, and a competitive salary.

Resurrection University will host a “Thinking Out Loud” speaker series for men, by men.

“Men in Nursing” is a free event that brings together a panel of male nursing professionals to talk about what it’s like to be a nurse in today’s healthcare environment

Feds to tackle nursing home workforce development in FY 2017

Two federal agencies are planning to collaborate in the next fiscal year to address long-term care workforce issues in nursing home settings, according to a report released Thursday.
The report, published by the Government Accountability Office, identified gaps and limitations in data about direct care workers, such as nursing assistants and home health aides, that hinder workforce planning efforts.
Among those gaps is a lack of data from the Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration on the supply and demand of the direct care workforce, the GAO said. HRSA has not produced an assessment of direct care worker data in more than 10 years, despite the creation of new data sources.

Job-Seeking Nurses Face Higher Hurdle as Hospitals Require More-Advanced Degrees

Hundreds of thousands of Americans flocked to nursing schools over the past decade, drawn by the prospect of a well-paying job with a degree that takes as little as two years. But many have graduated only to find the goal posts have shifted, as hospitals seek nurses with more-advanced degrees, partly in response to an increasingly complex health-care system.

Are student nurses disillusioned with nursing?

In this age of (over)sharing on social media, I am fully aware of the negative impact the proposed changes to the NHS are having on the morale of student nurses.

This is the best career option if you don’t want a robot to take your job

Robots are taking over our jobs. A 2013 Oxford study estimates that artificial intelligence (AI) will swallow up about 47% of all employment in the United States in the next 20 years.

But there are a few safe bastions left for humans — one of them is nursing.

The Oxford study calculated that nurses have less than a 1% chance of being automated. That’s because nurses have to deal with other people, care for others, and have to solve problems under a lot of pressure.

“If you want to become a nurse — and that’s for men and women — that’s a great profession right now,” Jerry Kaplan, author of “Humans Need Not Apply: A Guide to Wealth and Work in the Age of Artificial Intelligence,” told Tech Insider.

Kaplan’s not the only who thinks nursing would be a great career choice for people looking to avoid the coming hoard of robot workers.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics identified nursing as one of the fastest growing professions. The BLS estimates that registered nurses employment will increase by 19% from 2012 to 2022, a faster than average increase. For nurse practitioners, who can provide primary care and write medications, it’s almost twice the rate at about 33%.

Nursing is more than just a safe career bet against automation, it’s also a growing field with lots of opportunities — nursing shortages have come and go, but the current shortage is expected to grow far worse.

According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, many problems are compounding the nursing shortage. There aren’t enough faculty members teaching nursing, many nurses are nearing retirement, and aging baby boomers are putting a huge strain on hospitals.

For those too squeamish for hospitals — or who have heard one to many poop stories from the nurses they know — Toby Walsh, a computer scientist at the National Information and Communications Technology Research in Australia, told Tech Insider the most robot-immune careers are ones where employees have to be creative and be experts at interpersonal relationships.

His advice for a robot-immune career? “Go into the most people-facing, artistic, creative places that you can think of,” Walsh told Tech Insider. “The people who are in the most people-facing, sociological, empathetic jobs are going to be people.”

Where the jobs are: The fast track to a nursing career

September 29, 2015: A new program is helping students get one step closer to filling the void.

CLEVELAND—There is a very dramatic shortage of nurses nationwide and right here in Northeast Ohio. But the lack of registered nurses (RN’s) also means there is great opportunity for people looking for a career change. A new program is putting students on the fast-track to help fill the void.

A Baldwin Wallace program is the only one of its kind in Ohio. Many people, with at least a college degree, can become a nurse in just one year. The pay is good starting at about $50,000 says the program’s director.

“It’s very intense. But the intensity is so good because it keeps us on our toes,” said Baldwin Wallace University nursing student Krista Zaharewicz. She is one of 32 students in her class with at least a bachelor’s degree, being fast-tracked to a nursing degree.  And with success.

In the last two years, over 90% of B-W’s accelerated bachelor of science in nursing program grads passed the boards, surpassing state and national averages.
Getting more nursing grads into the pipeline is a big deal right now says program director James Fell. “The nursing shortage is regional. It’s more severe in some parts of the country than others.”

The head of B-W’s program isn’t kidding. The prediction is the 17-county region around Cleveland faces a shortfall of nearly 6,000 registered nurses by 2020.  “It’s a transformation and it’s really an opportunity for registered nurses to lead that transformation,” according to Kelly Hancock, who is the Executive Chief Nursing Director at the Cleveland Clinic.

Look no further than the Clinic’s #nursesrightnow campaign, which has offered more than 550 nursing jobs to candidates at the end of three events held here in northeast Ohio.

MetroHealth is feeling the nursing squeeze too, offering opportunities for retired nurses to come back to work - and an intern program, in which they hire about 90 percent of the nurses they train.

The national landscape for nursing is just as promising. If you are educated here in the state, but for whatever reason have to leave it’s not a problem. Nursing is very much in demand. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that nursing is in the top professions when it comes to job growth. And by the year 2022, RN’s are expected to grow by 19%.

If the numbers hold up, a future in nursing is certainly a bright one.

In January, even more nursing students will have a chance to participate in BW’s fast-tracked program. A second group of nursing students will form a hybrid “Designated Education Unit” at University Hospitals.The students will perform all clinical work exclusively at University Hospitals.

They’ll get one-on one training from nurse supervisors during the last semester --- and then have a chance at working for UH right after training.
