Diabetes Month- March 2016

diabetesWhen my father was diagnosed with Diabetes I was devasted. I was lucky to have the background as a nurse and provide support. His diagnosis came upon my family all of a sudden- One moment he was fine the next moment he was throwing up and had a blood sugar that was unreadable on a glucometer. His discharge meds were unavailable at certain pharmacies and it was crucial that I found the right meds within hours of pharmacies closing in the NYC metro area. I was determined to provide my father with the best care. Going through the process caused me to think of other who were discharged and do not have a nurse at home to help them transition. I was there everyday to ensure he took his insulin. Interestingly enough, I noticed many hospitals do not have the appropriate samples to educate patients. If you or a loved one is diagnosed, ask your nurse to include your caregiver in your care- Patients are often overwhelmed and sometimes cannot learn due to shock, language or inability to understand medical jargon. It’s imperative as healthcare providers we advocate for patients to ensure they understand the fear patients face while in hospitals.

Diabetes is a disease requiring lifestyle management. Today my father has transitioned off of daily insulin. Advocate for yourself, family and patients to receive education so they can flourish and live healthy lives.

Healthy Living #PureBarre #Bootcamp #Clean Diet

Eating clean and working out can truly be harder than it seems. Over the past three years, I’ve tried so hard to work out three times a week in conjunction to eating protein and veggies. I’ve also tried bootcamp, cardio and Pure Barre. The lessons learned is that I can’t be too hard on myself to sustain a healthy diet. Certain changes are periodic and requires assistance. As a professor, I teach doctoral students to implement QI processes in nursing. I’ve decided to utilize the PDCA cycle on my health regimen. Plan: Execerise Do: Cardio 3 times a week Check: My new pattern Act: Institute reminders.This past week my thought pattern changed and I was reminded by my doorman! Who would think that all I needed was a reminder the moment I got home to workout. Sometimes, we must use our support systems to challenge us and reach new heights. I am finally on track and looking forward to reaching my workout goals!!!

Online Nurse Mentorship- Entry into Practice, Career Development, Academic guidance


Transitioning into the field of nursing is not easy. Today I received this email from a new graduate nurse I once gave advice. She wrote:
Good Afternoon Ms.Natalia,
How are you ? I hope you haven’t forgotten me already! I just wanted to give you an update on my journey as a RN. So far being a Nurse has been very challenging. I’m having difficulties inserting IV’s and drawing blood, but that’s the least of my worries. As far as my nursing skills, I have learned how to my implement everything I learned in school into my practice.
My coworkers aren’t so friendly and as times I feel alone. But I enjoy communicating with my patients and I LOVE being a nurse. My experience so far is only creating a tough skin for me.
I have taken your advice by reflecting on my day, and how did I implement my nursing care for my patients’ diagnose.
I hope to hear from you soon!

I immediately responded to this new nurse but I can’t help imagine the number of nurses who are in need of help as they transition into the real world. Mentorship and guidance is key as you acclimate to the work environment.
