Exclusive Interview with The Legend, Virginia Allen, The Last Black Angel

Virginia Allen was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1931. She was inspired by her aunt, who worked as a nurse in New York City. With her parents’ support, Allen received her license of practical nursing from Central School for Practical Nurses. She initially worked as a surgical nurse, and in 1947, at the age of 16, she joined her aunt and began working as a nurse in Sea View Hospital. Sea View Hospital was the largest tuberculosis sanitarium globally and the site where a lung specialist led the development of isoniazid, a cure for tuberculosis. Black nurses who worked at Sea View Hospital were known as the Black Angels. They consisted of about 300 Black nurses who cared for quarantined tuberculosis patients from 1928–1960 and provided direct patient care when white nurses refused. After her work as a Black Angel, Virginia continued her work within the community as a leader and member in multiple organizations. Join the conversation by sending comments or questions to [email protected].  1.

Dr. Annie DePasquale, MD is a Board-certified Family Medicine physician who first-hand saw an unmet need for her NP colleagues who need a supervising physician to practice independently.Dr. Annie DePasquale studied Piano & French as an Undergrad at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania before graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia and completing her Facility Medicine Residency program at Georgetown University in Washington DC. She taught for the Teach America program in Baltimore, MD and worked for Federally Qualified Health Centers in Washington, DC, Medford, OR & Lynchburg, VA.In 2020, Dr. Annie DePasquale founded Collaborating Docs when she realized how hard it is for NPs to find a collaborating physician. The hoops that nurse practitioners have to jump through to start practicing are too exhausting for anyone to handle alone. Dr. DePasquale benefited greatly from the mentorship of NPs throughout her career, especially when she was a green new grad, so she is very committed to giving back to the community that helped her so much.Our mission is to make it easy for NPs to help more patients by having the freedom of choice.

Exploring the Vitality of Honoring Self with Celebrity Wellness Lifestyle Coach Erica Savage

Erica Savage is an Amazon best-selling author, Media Commentator, Celebrity Wellness Lifestyle Coach, Corporate Consultant and the founder of The Reframed Brain podcast and wellness community. Having sustained a serious traumatic brain injury in 2021 after being hit by an 18-wheel truck twice while traveling for work, Erica’s professional and personal worlds transformed significantly.

This is critically centered especially as the global pandemic gave rise to anxiety, stress, depression, suicide rates and mental health service demands. Erica’s experience-driven injuries primed her to provide expertise in creating environments of healing and wellness to individuals, institutions, and corporate structures.

NWP: How Are Nurse Leaders Able to Retain Nurses During A National Nursing Shortage? Wendy with Lisa Bazinet, RN, OCN, CNML

Lisa Bazinet RN,MSN,OCN, CNML is the Regional Nurse Manager of Oncology Services for Hartford Healthcare East Region. She has  experience in the inpatient areas as well, being both a nurse manager for an inpatient oncology unit,  28 bed medical surgical as well as IVT.  Lisa has been a RN for almost twenty years starting her nursing career first as an LPN. She has worked as a nurse at the bedside for over 17 years in various settings  before going into a more formal leadership role.  She is a graduate of St Joseph’s College in Standish Main obtaining her Master’s Degree in Nursing with a  concentration in Administration. She is also an alumni of both the University of Connecticut and University of the State of  New York.  She holds two certifications in both oncology nursing and nurse management/leadership. She is also a 2006 receiptant  of the Florence Nightingale award. In her spare time, Lisa enjoys walking with her dogs, two  German shorthaired pointers, Chase and  Echo, boating, reading mystery novels ( James Patterson, Tess Gerritsen)  as well as spending time at the beach. The reason why I wanted to become a nurse manger several years into my nursing career was because I had a  really great leader who could take even the busiest of days and  make them better. I think because she  made, the nurse at the bedside,  feel supported and valued. Nursing is hard work  emotionally, physically and mentally and to have  your leader “get it"  and support, hear you and value your opinion, is what I strive to do at all of my centers each and every day. Being a “hands on” manager is critical to a team’s success.  You have to walk the walk and talk the talk. My motto has always been “treat others as they would like to be treated”. Every day can be hard, but each day also can be a new opportunity as well.   She is  married to her husband Paul who teaches high school and  her and husband have two sons, Alex and Jack. And of course the two dogs.1. Click the link to REGISTER  for the next Stress Solution Series2. Download your FREE Mindfulness E-Book at stressblueprint.com/353.

NWP: How Does an Emergency Room Travel Nurse Manage Stress and Start a Homecare Business? Wendy with Kadian Russell, RN, CEO of Precious Memories Hospice Homecare, LLC

Kadian S. Russell knew from an early age that she wanted to become a nurse. She was inspired by her high school nurse Ms. Marilyn Adamo. Ms. Adamo was that person many went to even if it was just to get a hug.  After graduating from Northwest Catholic High School in 2000, Kadian went on to pursue her dream at The College of New Rochelle (CNR), in New Rochelle, NY. A few years into the nursing program, she realized that it was not the right fit so she transferred to American International College (AIC) in Springfield, MA. On May 21, 2006, Kadian walked across the stage to receive her Bachelor's of Science in nursing. She realized since nursing school that she loved the trauma and the drama of the emergency room. In August 2006 after passing her NCLEX, she went into the ER as a brand new nurse. Nursing wasn't Kadian's only passion or interest, forensic science was. In Sept 2009, she enrolled in the Dr. Henry C. Lee Forensic Science program at the University of New Haven in West Haven, CT. In 2012, Kadian received her Master's of Science in Forensic Science. Today, Kadian continues to work in the ER, but as a travel nurse for the last 5 years. This adventure started as a healing tool when her older brother unexpectedly passed in 2017. Although she continued to help others, Kadian felt that there was more she needed to do. In 2021 while helping to care for her pastor's dying mother, that is when she discovered another passion, hospice. After osing both paternal grandparents in 2015 and her brother in 2017, she knew she wanted to honor their memory. From this desire, Precious Memories Hospice Homecare, LLC was birthed and the doors opened on February 26, 2022. She will continue to provide exceptional care and live by the motto "where yesterday's memory, is tomorrow's treasure" Email: [email protected]  Website: Preciousmemoriescare.com 1.

NWP: PIN: Nursing Journey Leading to Oncology. Wendy with Edna Yilma, Student Nurse

Edna Yilma is a nursing student at Quinnipiac University with a passion for health equity and holistic care. An immigrant-generation college student, she saw healthcare disparities and shortages impact her loved ones every day. She believed that coming to the U.S. would solve all these problems, and that in one of the richest countries in the world, the system would help all patients equally. However, she soon found that this was not the case. In 2011, her father had the first of what would be many strokes. She watched as her mother lost everything trying to manage his care and medical bills. Through her own life experiences and my continued nursing education, she has learned the importance of health equity.   Last summer she had the opportunity to work with Johnson and Johnson's diversity, equity, and inclusion team to shape diversity trainings, assist with external equity research, and conduct data analysis on employee membership data. In that role, she networked and made long-lasting connections, truly seeing the value of mentorship. She then went on to work in project management with a focus on health disparity initiatives, where she offered insights to guide the development of the new J&J minority nursing student mentorship program and analyzed member data to shape future events.  She hopes to share her experience and interest in health equity and to make a difference for others in this area. An upcoming Oncology Flynn Fellow, Edna is now working towards her dream of propelling the compassionate care she saw nurses provide when her father was ill. She believes that nurses are the heart of healthcare, and that their impact is critical in improving health outcomes.   1. Click the link to REGISTER  for the Stress Solution Series2.
