How Ghana Changed The Exodus Of Nurses

Ghana's government has scrapped a controversial ban on newly qualified nurses traveling to find more lucrative employment abroad.

They introduced it 10 years ago when the West African country was suffering from a shortfall of nurses as many headed off for better opportunities in the West.

It began a scheme funding the education of nurses who then had to agree to work for the next five years in Ghana.

But now the government says it has enough nurses and it is no longer useful to keep them under bond.
"There are now more private schools churning out nurses and some of them can't even find jobs," Dr Kwesi Abir, the health ministry's deputy director of human resources, told the BBC.

Sexual Harassment Of Nurses 2 ( VIDEO)

Harassment of nurses happen in the different settings they work.Sometimes it could even be from senior directors but most times,its from the people for which they are in the hospital to care for-the patients.

Sexual Harassment By Patients,Ever Experienced it?

Have you ever had this experience? After reading kindly share your experience below in the comment box to help other nurses know how you handled it.

Many nurses have had to contend with this issue at one time or the other in the course of their practice.

I have personally noted this most times especially in surgical or orthopedic open ward when patients are not necessarily ill but are simply incapacitated because of certain orthopedic impediment.Hence all other parts of the body including the perception and speech are intact.

Nurses have also reported sexual advances in patients private rooms where they had gone to care for such.Nurse are caring and patients sometimes misunderstand this to mean a call reason to advance.

This Woman Will Never Eat Again!

What would it feel like if you were to never eat again?You may have sometimes heard some people say that they wished they had a drug that would keep them filled ever ,never hungry again so that they wouldn't have to stress themselves to get money for food.However, all this is just a joke to keep life going.

But now,we are not joking.Her name is Nichola Nichols.She is just 25 and has a serious problem that paralyzed her stomach muscles.Because of this ,Nichola has not eaten in 7 years and will never eat again!

I know you will be thinking about a miracle now or your mind may be thinking about the possibility of her being healed by the the power of God.Yes.I believe that too.And i8 know that it is very possible for Nichola to get healed like many other people who have been miraculously cured of seemingly irredeemable conditions.

You Can Charge Your Phone With Urine!


Ha!I know you would be wondering what i am talking about this morning.well let me tell you that everything is possible or is becoming possible now with the continuous improvement and research into ways of making life easier for man.

The only thing that is impossible and very much unlikely yet is how to prevent death or how to bring back the dead.Of course certain diseases still cant be cured or prevented and that points to a higher being in charge of everything.

Waste not, want not, the saying goes, and researchers at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory are turning something we all produce – urine – into clean electricity, or 'urine-tricity'.
It sounds outlandish, but earlier this year, at the Reinvent the Toilet Fair in New Delhi, India – co-hosted by the Indian Department of Biotechnology and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – the team exhibited a functional urinal that was able to charge a phone using just urine, a world first. 

Google says humans could live for 500 YEARS

Google says humans could live for 500 YEARS - and is investing in firms hoping to extend our lives five-fold
Google has invested in taxi firms, smart thermostats and even artificial intelligence but it is also setting its sights on immortality - or at least increasing our lives five-fold. 

In an interview with Bloomberg, Google Ventures' president Bill Maris said he thinks it's possible to live to 500 years old. 
And this will be helped by medical breakthroughs as well as a rise in biomechanics.

He has already ploughed money into genetics firms and cancer diagnostic startups and said: 'We have the tools in the life sciences to achieve anything that you have the audacity to envision. I just hope to live long enough not to die.' 
Mr Maris founded Google Ventures in 2009 and oversees all of the fund’s global activities.
He studied neuroscience at Middlebury College and conducted neurobiology research at Duke University. 

One Billion Young At Risk Of Hearing Loss--WHO

The World Health organization WHO has warned that about one billion young people are at risk of developing hearing loss due to listening to loud music.

More than one billion young people risk damaging their hearing through listening to loud music, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday.
The WHO estimates that around half of those between the ages of 12 and 35 in middle- and high-income countries are at risk due to unsafe levels of sound on personal audio devices or smartphones.
Another 40 percent are at risk from damaging audio levels at concert venues and night clubs.
“More and more young people are exposed to unsafe levels of sounds. Young people should be aware that once you lose your hearing, it won’t come back,” said Shelley Chadha, a WHO specialist on hearing impairment.

A Day In The Live of A Nurse


High school students from Gering and Scottsbluff got a chance last week to learn what it’s like to be a nurse.

Becky Kautz, a member of the nursing faculty at Western Nebraska Community College, gathered current nurses to speak about how they came to the profession while student nurses and other members of the faculty showed the 50 students what life is like for a nurse in several of the nursing disciplines.

“This is the first time we’ve tried this activity,” Kautz said. “We invited high school students who have expressed an interest in nursing as a career path.”

Kautz said there is a continual need for nurses and WNCC can provide the training.

“We have both LPN and RN degrees here,” she said.

T.J. Dredla, an anesthetist with Regional West Medical center, said he didn’t really know at first if he wanted to be in health care.

“Something kept pulling me toward medicine,” he said. “The many opportunities in nursing was comforting because I could practice at home in rural areas and help my friends and family.”
