Find the U in nUrsing… staying positive l Episode 058
How many of us at some point in our nursing careers have thought to ourselves or even discussed with other nurses if we thought nursing was really the right career for us? For most of us nursing isn’t a career, it truly is a calling. Our desire to help others is what leads most of us to this profession. The question now is how do we find the positive in nursing? In today's episode we touch on 3 different areas to help keep a positive mindset: 1. Self-care - The American Nurses Association Code of Ethics says that the moral respect that nurses extend to all human beings “extends to oneself as well: the same duties that we owe to others we owe to ourselves.” 2. Learning how to give and responding to criticism is hard. I’ve always believed that you can truly say whatever you want as long as it is in a respectful way. Approach is everything. 3. Keeping a positive mindset - I think I can say with some certainty, many people faced negative moments, that made it difficult to find silver linings. But surrounding yourself with others that help find that silver lining is key. Visit our website www.thenursingpostpodcast.com for full show notes and references used in today's episode.

Black Market Organs l Episode 057
Organ trafficking requires a plethora of people, from the recruiter who finds the “donors” to the medical professionals who perform the surgery. The most common organ trafficking is where a person agrees to sell their organ but they are either not paid at all for the organ or they are paid significantly less than they originally agreed upon. There are even situations where traffickers force or deceive persons into giving up their organs, like when someone wakes up packed in ice with one less kidney. Although less common, this still happens to this day. The most vulnerable of people are targeted. There are even people who are treated for a condition that they may or may not have, and during that treatment their organ(s) are removed without their knowledge! List to the full episode to find out more about organ trafficking. You can always visit our website www.thenursingpostpodcast.com to learn more and for our references.

Donate Life (part 2) The Donor l Episode 056
Part 2 of our donate life series covers the donor side of organ donation. Organs come from either deceased or living donors. Deceased organ donation is the process of giving an organ or a part of an organ, at the time of the donor’s death. Living donors should be in good overall physical and mental health and older than 18 years of age. Living donors can donate; 1 of 2 kidneys 1 of 2 lobes of livers A lung or part of a lung, part of the pancreas, or part of the intestines. Tissue Deceased donations and transplantations professionals determine which organs can be transplanted and to which patients on the national transplant waiting list. The impact of donating is huge, 1 donor can save 8 lives. There are positive and life changing effects that come from donating and receiving an organ. For the recipient, receiving an organ prolongs life and allows for quality of life. For the donor, the experience of giving an organ to a person in need can serve as a positive, rewarding experience. The next step is up to you…. To register to become a donor and to save lives is as simple as contacting a transplant center, visit the OPTN Member Directory for a list of transplant centers. Make the next step by having an initial screening and have an independent donor advocate to help you navigate and advocate on your behalf.
