4 Aspects of Neonatal Nursing You Need To Know

Registered nurses who have completed an Assosiate’s Degree in nursing can advance their career and specialize in neonatal nursing. On the surface, becoming a neonatal nurse seems like a very rewarding profession, where nurses can utilize both their communication and administrative skills together with their nursing skills. In order to specialize in neonatal nursing, you would need a bachelor’s degree and additional certification. In addition, there are a few other aspects of working in neonatal nursing that you should be aware of before deciding to take your career in that direction.

1.    Further Certification

You need at least 2000 hours of experience in neonatal nursing, together with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. You can get registered as a neonatal nurse and receive certification from the National Certification Corporation. However, in addition to that, you can sit the licensure national exam and get a license as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. You will need to attend two more years of schooling and obtain deep knowledge of embryology, neonatal physiology, pathology, and pharmacology, because of the delicacy of infant care, you will need to undergo additional training at neonatal departments in hospitals or private clinics.

2.    Tough work environment

A neonatal nurse will take care of more than one baby at a time. You should also be prepared to do administrative tasks, as well as undertake careful monitoring of all babies under your care and prepare a report for the neonatal nurses that will come in the next shift after your own. You need higher communication skills than normal to achieve this, and must be able to work within a team. You also need to know how to educate parents and family members on the baby’s condition – especially if it is serious, you will need to do this in a polite and calm manner as to ensure they do not panic.

3.    Most rewarding nursing career

While you might need to work in a fast paced and tough environment, you will also be having one of the most rewarding careers. Of course, most careers in medicine are rewarding – there is nothing more rewarding than helping people when they need help the most, but here you are helping infants and newborns who have been born with such difficulties that it’s a miracle they are alive. And as a neonatal nurse, you would be helping these infants survive not only to toddlerhood, but adulthood as well.

4.    Psychologically demanding

On the other side of the coin is the fact that you need to be psychologically strong to take on the responsibility. There is also a chance you will witness infant death, and added to that, you will need to know how to deliver the news to family members, and how to console them. It requires a lot of patience, and all of that is added to the fact that there will be occasions where you will need to think on your feet and make quick decisions which will save an infant’s life.

4 Reasons Why MPH Degrees Will Bring a Better Future for the Healthcare Industry

Today, the whole world faces problems with healthcare administration, and the need for well-educated problem solvers in the field of public healthcare has never been greater. More people who have completed an MPH degree, or Master of Public Health is one of many ways to ensure the problems and issues the world is facing in the field of healthcare will be addressed by professionals who have the necessary training and educational background to ensure that these issues will be resolved in such a way as to make sure the healthcare industry runs smoothly and that every individual receives the right healthcare.

1.    Online Availability

Getting an MPH is difficult, and can take years to complete. Due to the wide spectrum of research and theoretical knowledge that’s necessary, most MPH degrees were taught exclusively on campus in the past. This has changed recently as more and more universities are enabling students to complete this diploma online, enabling them to both work in the field and gain hands-on experience while completing the diploma. In addition, there are about five different specialization fields, public wellbeing administration, epidemiology, behavioral sciences, occupational and environmental wellbeing, and biostatistics. With this diploma, graduates can work in public or private capacities, as administrative or scientific experts on public wellbeing and health.

2.    Student’s awareness

A degree in MPH will not bring about a bigger salary compared to a degree in MHA – Master of Healthcare Administration. However, due to the increasing number of public healthcare issues and problems of the world, including epidemics and behavioral issues, students are becoming more and more aware that something needs to be done, and they are willing to be the ones who do it. In other words, working as an expert in public healthcare is a rewarding, worthwhile job that ensures you will get to help the whole world and the students are becoming increasingly aware of it.

3.    Schools create attractive curriculums

Many schools and universities are doing their best to create curriculums and programs to attract students. They have incorporated social entrepreneurship to their programs, as well as generated many grants and scholarships for prospective students. Students get to learn how to help people by applying entrepreneurship skills, and some universities have received donations and grants that will be used specifically to help students fund their degrees in MPH.

4.    Beneifts for public healthcare

With the increased amount of students who enroll in Master’s studies of Public Healthcare, the world will get more problem solvers who will have the intelligence, knowledge and drive not only to solve the current issues of public healthcare, but perceive future possible problems and learn how to prevent them and minimize the negative effect these problems might have on the world. Master’s in Public Healthcare will bring about the world becoming a better place, which is one of the most attractive aspects for prospective students who wish to get a degree in healthcare.

The Vera Bradley Holiday Tote The Vera Bradley Holiday ToteJust in time for Christmas is the Vera Bradley Holiday Tote. This is a limited edition bag, though, so don’t expect to see very many available after the holidays have past. My biggest complaint with the bag is really in the name. Why not just call it the Vera Bradley “Christmas Tote”? I think some have already begun calling it by that name, but holiday tote is the official name for it. Over all, it’s a lovely little bag that is purely symmetric. Measure at 14″ by 14″ it also has a removable… [Read more of this review]

Vera Bradley Bow Cosmetic Bags: Retired but Beloved Vera Bradley Bow Cosmetic Bags: Retired but BelovedI am sure I’m not the only one who just loves the Vera Bradley bow  cosmetic bags and who is also sad to see them go.  You can still get a few from retail stores if they are secretly stashing any in the back for a rainy day, but Vera Bradley has stopped making these bags for good, or at least until we can convince them to start making them again.  They are just so functional, and that kind of functionality is hard to find in a cosmetic bag these days.  There are pockets on the inside that are… [Read more of this review]

Vera Bradley Made in China or United States? Vera Bradley Made in China or United States?Ever wondered why SOME Vera Bradley purses will say “Made in USA” and others will say “Made in China”?  Well a few years ago you did not have to worry where that Vera Bradley bag was made.  Fort Wayne Indiana was cranking out the purses and all of them were made in the good ole USA.  But a couple years ago we started noticing some bags said “made in China” and questions were raised. The excuse Vera Bradley gave us was that the demand for these fabric handbags was so much that they had to outsource… [Read more of this review]

Some of you newer Vera Bradlet fans may not even recognize this style and may even think it’s a “fake” when you first see it, but it’s a genuine VB pattern with lots of class and flare.
