Welcome to the Show

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up, in this week’s nursing news items, we’ll be looking at three different news items about nurses on the front lines of healthcare in our communities.

Then in this week’s special tip segment I got the chance to chat with Dr. Jorge Chavarro who is one of the key researchers on stage three of the ongoing Nurses Health Study that’s been recording information on the health of nurse participants since the mid 1970s. That study is opening up for more nurse participants and including male nurses for the first time. You can now be a part of it, too and we’ll tell you how. We’ll have that and more later in this episode after the news.

If you want to get back in touch with me, please drop me an email. You can send those e-mails in to I love to hear from you and I make sure I respond back to every email that comes in. Send me links to news items you’d like me to cover, interview suggestions with you or somebody you know.

Tip of the Week – Nurses’ Health Study Opens for New Participants

NHS3-LogoI’ve talked on the show before many times about the Nurses’ Health Study at Harvard Chan School of Public Health and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. This study has been going on since it started tracking the health of nurses back in 1976 and now has had more than 238,000 participants. The findings of this ongoing health study has allowed NHS to produce key advances in literally hundreds of important topics–altering medical practice and changing national dietary guidelines.

The Nurses’ Health Study is opening again for a new round of participants and will include male nurses for the first time. You can find out more about how to sign up to participate at and check out this next interview with Dr. Jorge Chavarro, one of the public health researchers working on the next phase of the Nurse’s Health Study. Here it is!
