After last week’s episode focusing solely on education, our panel jumps back in to reviewing a few nursing articles from the week and we start off with a look at a University of Maryland School of Nursing study about nurse job satisfaction and magnet status of a hospital.

Does a hospital’s status and accreditation as a magnet facility necessarily mean that the nurses there are happier than other facilities? We ask that question of our panel.

Kim and Jamie delve into the topic of non-traditional conferences. We also take a look at a nurse educator in Baltimore who is reaching out to see if simple nursing interventions can improve the lives of lower income elderly persons so they can live longer, healthier lives in their own homes. What are other nurses doing to impact their communities in such a direct and resourceful way?
