Pomp. Circumstance. Debt. Groundbreaking.
Coming up on the Show this week…Graduation! You’ve made it to the finish line—now what’s next? The song “Pomp and Circumstance” by English Composer Sir Edward Elgar plays on as graduates march on that glorious day. You’ve worked hard, spent lots of money to get a good education and now it’s time to put that education to work.
All of those things are true but not so fast! Unfortunately there are some realities that are facing college graduates today. To begin with graduates are burdened with an average of $80,000 in student loans and many are finding it very difficult to find work in their chosen profession upon graduating. Unfortunately that is no different in nursing and it appears that some of that may be by design. RN and healthcare activist DeAnn McEwen joins us.
And Casey and Shayne welcome a very special guest Dr. Francine Shapiro. Dr. Shapiro discovered one of the most important breakthroughs in the history of psychology, EMDR Therapy, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. Her new book is Getting Past Your Past: Take Control of your Life with Self-Help Techniques from EMDR Therapy. “This groundbreaking therapy has given a life-transforming gift to the world by her rigorous development of a science-validated approach to soothing the suffering of our small and large life traumas,” says Daniel J Siegel, MD. You won’t want to miss Dr. Shapiro. For more information on EMDR and “Getting Past Your Past” you can visit the EMDR Institute’s web site.
This from our friends at “I’m your Nurse not Your Waitress,” Differences Between the New Graduate Nurse and Experienced Nurses:
A graduate nurse throws up when the patient does.
An experienced nurse calls housekeeping when a patient throws up.
A graduate nurse wears so many pins on their name badge you can’t read it.
An experienced nurse doesn’t wear a name badge for liability reasons.
