How COVID Is Changing the Future of the Nursing Profession

We're only two weeks in, and May has already proven to be a significant month for worker movements. We've seen a rapid increase in calls for labor unions across major corporations. We've seen workplaces implement new tactics in attempt to improve worker shortages, especially in front-line positions. And recently, we've seen a major uptick in workers moving from the U.S. to Canada, specifically because Canada does not limit its work visas for entrepreneurs and those in tech. As well, earlier this year, Ontario started recognizing internationally trained nurses. While this deployment started in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many are…

Networking in 2022: Make Connections Like Never Before

19 May 2022

Then, last year, I attended my first conference since the pandemic hit, which also happened to be my first online conference: Collision 2021. This year, however, I've already attended two—one of which was entirely online; the other, partly bimodal, but mostly in-person. And although almost everyone seems to agree Zoom just isn't quite as nice as being in-person, it's important to recognize the pros and cons of each. More importantly, it's important to remember how drastically conferences and…
