Our president, Indra Hershorin, welcomed the new members with a beautiful speech, and despite the inclement weather those that were able to attend enjoyed the evening. For those that were not able to attend, we missed you.

Greeting to my colleagues. My name is Patrick Palmieri and I live in Lima, Peru. I am a dual American and Peruvian citizen. And, I am interested in linking with colleagues with an interest in nursing in Latin America. Global nursing scholarship has been discussed for more than two decades but there has little progress in this area.

For a recent abstract, I found the following: More than two decades ago, scholars determined nursing science was at a critical juncture with an urgent need to develop nursing knowledge relevant to the health of the global community (Meleis, 1993). Considering the rapid knowledge expansion in North American professional nursing and the expanding global context, Ketefian & Redman, (1997) stated, “nursing science now faces the challenge of moving to its next phase of development, which we call ‘becoming globally relevant.’ This movement entails a variety of activities and changes in the way we do science, a responsibility that should be shared by scientists in the U.S. and internationally” (p. 15). Again, early in the new millennium scholars called for the development of a “universal holistic model of scholarship” for the larger nursing identity as required to respond to the impact of globalization (Riley, Beal, Levi, & McCausland, 2002). Yet, in this new millennium, there is little evidence to demonstrate this challenge has been addressed.

Been wanting to Blog for some time. Starting with nonsense to test the water - any other novices?

As Albert Einstein truly said, it has become appallingly obvious that technology has exceeded our humanity. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. The advancement of technology has led to the creation of ideal gadgets including laptop —a perfect tool that affords to hold the world between the hands. It brings back a more seamless kind of learning for every individual whether a student, businessman, working woman or any other person.

 

Nowadays, its use has become very common in this digital era of technology. But on the other hand its excessive use especially on the lap, has thrown young people into a number of health risks.

 

Laptops pose an invisible threat to an individual’s life if not used cautiously. Lower frequency Electromagnet Radiations (EMR), High radio frequency radiation (RF) and heat radiations are emitted continuously from a laptop while it is in use. When a laptop is connected to use Bluetooth, WI-Fi and other wireless cellular connections it emits even higher frequency radiations. Laptops have fans that exhaust hot air and can greatly increase the temperature up 110 0 F or 700C . These fans keep the operating temperature stable inside the computer ensuring proper performance when heat is generated.

In this world of worries, our daily life is filled with electronic pianos, ring tones, the disembodied voice giving you your bank balance over the telephone. Audio devices which include iPods, MP3 players, headphones, ear buds etc have been very popular among the 21st century youth. People use these devices for the sake of entertainment, listening to  music, relaxing, concentrating on their work and for many other purposes. Nowadays students, employees, young adults carry these devices along with them as they render it easy for them  to take  music, audio books and telephone calls on the go so that they can enjoy music during work as well as in their spare time.

 

Hence listening has become a source of pleasure for many individuals. As Albert Einstein truly said, “Technology has exceeded our humanity and it is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand and slaps you in the back with the other.”

 

The developer of headphones has designed them to be held in place close to the user’s ear. Their aim in the development of headphones was to help airline pilots cancel the low frequency rumble of jet engines as the human ear can only persist about 50dB. Getting in tune with the music close the ear is dangerous as it seals the canals. Volume levels are significantly louder in sealed ear canals but our defense mechanisms makes the volume sound softer, so we turn up the volume even more. That puts an even bigger strain on the eardrum and when this continues for more than an hour the listener starts feeling fatigue and concentration is also disturbed, as attention requires mental effort and we get mentally tired.

               I know that this is probably old news by now but I wanted to express my sincere appreciation to my Chapter Iota Nu for I had never attended this Conference before and was in awe of the extent of the attendance of nurses attending the conference. It was truly a testimony to the dedication that nurses have to their profession.

Nursing is not just a career but a vocation to minister to the sick and disabled in our society. As a nursing instructor, I am privileged to pass on my knowledge and values to those who will carry the profession of nursing forward. Florence Nightingale did exactly that in her life, leaving knowledge and science and yes attitude and values to those of us who have followed in her footsteps. This legacy that we each leave to the next generation is important for our profession in order to carry on the tradition that holds nursing to a higher standard. These values and attitudes are so evident in the biennial convention as we share the stories of our nursing careers with others throughout the world.

I want more information and learning about ressearch which I know I will do a lot of but I also want to teach in a nursing program. Can anyone give me some ideas related to the EdD programs and PhD programs. And the differences between them?

I think it might be time to get rid of nursing school text books from 10 years ago.    Right?
