International Nurses Day is an important opportunity to check the pulse of nurses around the world, especially in 2022. Nurses have given their all in the response to pandemics, natural disasters, and in war zones, in leading mass COVID-19 testing and vaccination efforts, and in completely redesigning how and where care is delivered. The value of nurses has never been more clear. Nor could it be any clearer that not enough is being done to protect nurses and other health workers, tragically underscored by the more than 180,000 health worker deaths due to COVID-19 and the alarming increase of mental health conditions and concerns nurses report. COVID-19 has altered many nurses’ career plans – over the past two years, McKinsey & Company has found that worldwide, nurses consistently, and increasingly, report planning to leave the workforce at higher rates compared with the past decade. Those departures have profound implications for the health of citizens and systems everywhere. Indeed, the greatest threat to global health is the workforce shortage. As part of our Meeting of Minds series, we listen in as four McKinsey partners from their Healthcare Systems & Services practice discuss the results of a McKinsey & Company survey of frontline nurses across six countries including Brazil, France, Japan, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In this conversation we hear Gretchen Berlin, RN, Thomas London, MBA, Robin Roark, MD, MBA, and Senthu Arumugam, MBA explore the survey’s findings of why nurses are considering leaving their roles, what energizes them to keep going, and how nurses around the world are eager to innovate and deliver care in different and better ways to solve what has become a consequential global problem.

Medical education is in the midst of a revolution.

Observed during May, National Nurses Month is a call-to-attention, action, and dedicated to highlighting the impact nurses have on people, communities, nations, and the planet. Given that May is also Mental Health Awareness Month, this year we’re particularly mindful of the impact that healthcare has had on nurses; of the specific challenges and dangers nurses have encountered, endured, and continue to endure; and the need to express our appreciation for nurses in terms of bold, urgent, system-level action, support, and investment. In this episode we learn how a health system’s leadership demonstrates their commitment to the wellbeing and flourishing of their team members; the rather unlikely story of nurses, singing, and stardom; and the surprising healing power of the arts. Special thanks to nurse and tenor singer Winnie Mele, RN, BSN, NE-BC, nurse and soprano singer Keshia Jaboin, RN, BSN , and Allison Lowenfeld from Northwell Health’s corporate marketing team for sharing their story, experience, and voices.

Early in Carol Rosenberg’s career in pediatric oncology, she remembers when a mom, asking about her daughter, collapsed in her arms, and said: “What if I do something wrong taking care of her? What if I hurt my baby?” It was in this moment Carol knew that more needed to be done to help parents provide in-home care to their children who have acute, chronic, and complex conditions. Starting with her DNP project as a student at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, Carol eventually turned her idea into her own company called Ready.Sim.Go. She shares her story on this episode of the podcast.

The health of our planet is in serious condition. Climate change is anticipated to result in increasingly warmer global temperatures, more extreme weather events, and rising sea levels. Without accelerated intervention and broad scale innovation across all economic sectors, we face devastating effects on global water and food supplies, critical infrastructure and supply chains, physical and mental health, and a less certain future. Understanding the impacts of climate change on human health is vitally important for the global population. You can’t have healthy people without a healthy environment; something that health professionals today increasingly understand. Just as nurses are skilled at turning around a health crisis that humans can experience -- they’re also well trained and ideally positioned for addressing the critical condition of our planet. In this episode we meet Teddie Potter, PhD, RN, FAAN, Director of Planetary Health for the School of Nursing at the University of Minnesota and learn how nurses can and are reducing greenhouse emissions, find out why educating girls is key to a healthier planet, and discover who the best intergenerational storytellers are for helping us understand our relationship to and stewardship of the planet and where to innovate to improve its health.
