New specialty license plates to honor nurses

This summer, a great way to support nursing will hit the streets — a new specialty nurse license plate.

“This is a great way to honor nursing, whether you are a nurse, know a nurse, like a nurse or just respect the profession,” said Georgia Barkers, Ed.D., MBA, MHA, BSN, RN-BC, NEA-BC, president of the Georgia Nurses Foundation. “After years of planning, designing and working through the process, we are so excited and can hardly believe that it is finally happening.”

Who knew that a license plate could involve so much red tape? Barkers said the Georgia Nurses Association (GNA) and the Georgia Nurses Foundation (GNF) had been talking about a license plate long before she joined the foundation as director of leadership development four years ago.

The design, which includes a red Florence Nightingale lamp logo (borrowed with permission from the American Nurses Association) and the phrase, “Nurses Save Lives,” was selected by the GNA Convention and Membership Assembly in Athens in 2009.

“This year, the Georgia Legislature passed HB 732, which dedicated a portion of the funds derived from the sale of specialty nurse license plates to the Georgia Nurses Foundation,” Barkers said. “The money will help the foundation do more things for Georgia nurses.”

Barkers noted that the money received from by GNF from specialty license plate sales would go toward nursing scholarships and for workforce planning and development.

The 2013 state budget allocates $27,000 in new funding for the RN Workforce survey. Experts agree that more data on the nursing population is needed in Georgia.

“Once we have more data on the status of nurses in Georgia, we can do a better job of planning health care needs for the state,” Barkers said.

Darton begins 4-year Nursing Program

Students have about one more month to apply for Darton College’s first 4-year degree. 

Classes in the new Nursing Baccalaureate Degree program start in just four months. Admission will be competitive because the program will start small.

Nursing students working on their associates degree at Darton are buried in books, studying for exams just two weeks away.

“You have to put a lot of effort into it because you have to put a lot of effort into it to become a good nurse, you basically have to know your stuff,” said Lois Kamau, a Darton College Nursing Student.

Just last month the college was granted initial approval for the Bachelors Program and is working with SACS and other agencies to gain the needed accreditation. Enrollment is underway.

“We’re planning on accepting application through May 15th,” said April Reese, DPN, CNM Darton College Dean of Nursing.

The response has been overwhelming especially from those who’ve graduated from the 2-year program.

“Most of the students I’m advising are former graduates and a lot of them have previous degrees, or bachelor degrees in other areas,” said Tracy Suber, MSN, RN Darton College Assistant Dean of Nursing.

Digging Deeper Darton College has an unheard of 10 professors working on their doctoral degrees. They’re helping to shape what the program will eventually include.

“The board of nursing and our accrediting bodies have certain courses that have to be include and those courses are research, courses in leadership and community health. Apart from that we have some freedom for other courses we want to develop,” said Reese.

As the economy improves more nurses, especially supervisors who’ve held off retirement and faulty will leave the workforce, creating openings for students with advanced degrees.

Georgia could be 38,000 nurses short in 10 years, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Nursing careers essential for Georgia

Competent, compassionate nurses can make all the difference in our health care. They work in hospitals, clinics, homes and hospices, and without them we’d be lost.

That’s why I’m glad that The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and ajcjobs.com recognizes National Nurses Week (May 6-12) with a “Celebrating Nurses” section in Sunday’s paper and special write-up of Nursing Excellence Awards winners.

After all, if you were introduced to Kristen Earley, Milton High School valedictorian of 2006, who has studied at Berry College and Emory University to become a nurse, you’d want to tell her she’s made a good career decision.

And if you needed the nursing crew at Emory University Hospital, where my oldest daughter is an emergency department R.N., or the nurses at Grady Memorial Hospital or any other Georgia hospital, you’d thank them all for learning the nursing skills needed to keep you alive.

And if you talked to science-minded middle and high school students hoping to help humanity, you’d want to mention the benefits of a nursing vocation for both males and females.

We need all these people — current nurses and lots of new nurses — because our state faces a severe nursing shortage. A study from the University System of Georgia’s Nursing Education Expansion Plan (NEEP) states that while “an adequate supply of registered nurses is essential to achieving quality, accessible health care for all people,” we face a shortfall of 16,400 registered nurses this year and 37,700 by 2020.

The nursing shortage presents challenges. First, we must reach more students such as Kristen, the graduating nurse from Milton, who says she was teased by bright classmates for “stopping at nursing” instead of wanting to become a doctor. The idea that nurses aren’t as smart as doctors is outdated.

Indeed, nursing today is a profession seeking intelligent, hardworking students of all ages able to grasp sciences such as anatomy and pharmacology; perform clinical work in areas such as acute care, pediatrics, labor and delivery, psychology, and community care; and pass the NCLEX — a comprehensive exam for the licensing of registered nurses.

But Georgia nursing also needs people and places to teach and train aspiring nurses. The Georgia NEEP study, submitted by the Nursing Education Task Force in September, notes that faculty shortages, constrained budgets and a lack of clinical training sites are “stressing the health care delivery system” around our state.

It’s also essential that our best hospitals have enough money to hire and train our excellent new graduates, who may go on to advanced degrees and service in other medical areas, including becoming nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants and nursing instructors.

New graduates like Milton’s Kristen Earley are the face of Georgia’s nursing future. With coordinated efforts among our educational institutions and governmental and private sector support, we can make our state a preeminent place for excellent health care. Recognizing and appreciating the vital work of our wonderful nurses is a great place to start.
