Nurses see firsthand how facilities are being used every day. They observe what furniture is being used or not used by visiting families and friends. They see how patients move about the hallways, patient rooms, stairs, elevators, cafeterias, bathrooms, etc. Nurses see the pros and cons of the infrastructure of the building(s) and should have a say in how they’re built in order to provide the best care possible.

Vloggers have several different platforms to choose from, but some platforms offer more exposure than others. One of the most well-known platforms is YouTube, and many would argue that YouTube is responsible for the meteoric rise in the popularity of vlogging.

YouTube is one of the best platforms for vloggers because it has over a billion users. Another popular platform is called Viddler, and with such a simple user interface, it’s used by many vloggers. True! Flip screen Vlogging video camera makes your work easy. Depending on your goals, some other popular platforms that you can use for vlogging are Facebook, Daily Motion and Vimeo.

Once you know what to look for and have decided on a platform to use, you’ll need to find a camera to purchase. The problem is that there are thousands of different cameras to choose from.

Features you should care about:

Video Quality: Pay attention to video resolution. You’ll see 720p, 1080p, and 4K in most descriptions for camcorders these days. They pretty much equate to HD ready, Full HD, and Ultra HD – each a little better than the last.

Built-In WiFi: Video editing alone can take a bit of time. Finding a camera with built-in WiFi can save you a step as your vids can automatically appear on your smartphone or PC. Otherwise, you’ll have to connect a USB cable and wait for the file to transfer. Yawn.

Microphone Input: Video quality may get your viewers through the door, but great sound will help keep them there. There isn’t a camera out there without a built-in mic. But for even better quality sound, choose a camera that lets you connect an external mic so you can always upgrade Without that port you’re stuck.

Stabilization: Some vloggers just sit in their bedroom and talk to the camera – which is fine. But if you want to record videos beyond that you’ll want to search for a camera that has built-in optical image stabilization. It’ll help ensure that your videos come out smooth no matter what activity you’re doing. You’ll also want to buy a tripod if the camera you choose doesn’t come with one. Amazon has great set-ups at pretty decent prices on those as well.

Canon EOS M50 review

The Canon EOS M50 is an upper entry-level mirrorless camera with a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, confident autofocus (for stills and 1080p video), small but crisp OLED viewfinder, excellent wireless, and becomes Canon’s first mirrorless with 4k video, a fully-articulated touch-screen, eye detection, and silent shooting options. Sadly the 4k is of limited use, employing a severe crop and only working with less confident contrast-based autofocus. I’m also frustrated there’s no USB charging, especially since the battery is fairly weak. But these aside, the EOS M50 remains a highly compelling model with a compact but comfortable body, effective touchscreen, industry-leading wireless, confident focusing for 1080p video, and great colors out-of-camera. Indeed the M50 may be pitched as an upper entry-level model, but I reckon it’s Canon’s most compelling mirrorless to date. Coupled with a hot shoe and microphone input, the M50 will be as popular with vloggers as it is with those looking for an upgrade from smartphone photography.

Nikon COOLPIX A900

The Nikon A900 is as big as a smartphone, giving new definition to the world small, but nevertheless, comes intact with pretty neat features.

Don’t bother about its size, it offers a whole swing of features that allow you to take the perfect pictures and recording in 4K ultra high definition even when lighting conditions are not so great. Yes, it works perfectly well in low lighting conditions, too.

This 3 inches 921k-dot LCD screen will tilt as per your need and allow you to capture some mind-blowing selfies.

The superb camera features 20 megapixels 1/2.3″ CMOS Sensor and Nikkor f/3.4-6.9 ED lens, with 30x optical zoom and 70x dynamic zoom.

Be part of our next breakthrough.

As a nurse at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), you will be part of the nation’s first hospital devoted exclusively to the care of children. Since 1855, CHOP has fostered medical breakthroughs and innovations that have improved pediatric healthcare and saved the lives of countless children.

Our compassionate care and commitment to innovation have repeatedly earned us a spot on U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll of the nation’s best children’s hospitals, and families come to us from around the world because we offer unique treatments that aren’t available anywhere else.

Excellence in nursing

Our nurses are valued for the exceptional care they deliver in more than 50 locations across Pennsylvania and New Jersey. When you join our team, you will be part of an organization recognized for excellence through our designation as a Magnet institution by the American Nurses Credentialing Center — a distinction held by less than 6 percent of healthcare institutions.

We value our nurses at CHOP for their contributions to the patient-family experience and we encourage them to be actively involved at all levels of the organization. They’re often asked to serve on decision-making bodies that address excellence in patient care and the safe, efficient and effective operation of the hospital.

At CHOP, we’re proud of the strong collaborative working relationships that our teams develop within and across the healthcare disciplines. We believe teamwork promotes excellent patient care and a healthy workplace. If you are a nurse looking to practice in an innovative, collaborative and outcomes-focused environment, you will find it here at CHOP.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion

Families facing complex conditions come to CHOP from all over the world. Creating a workforce that reflects our diverse patient population and the communities we serve is important to our mission of delivering culturally competent, family-centered care. We believe that each employee brings a unique worldview that contributes to the high quality of patient care, research and education for which we’re renowned.

We continually build and maintain diversity in our workforce through a variety of programs, initiatives and strategies. These include:

  • The CHOP Diversity Council, which oversees and supports the CHOP Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan.
  • The CHOP Cultural Awareness Council, which advises on and guides cultural awareness events, experiences and opportunities.
  • Employee resource groups and affinity groups, which broaden access to personal and professional development and growth opportunities through mentoring, volunteerism and community involvement. These groups also provide opportunities that allow the voices of employees to be heard and the power of diverse thinking to influence the policies, protocols and practices that define our workplace.
  • Our Office of Diversity and Inclusion, which applies the standard of diversity, inclusion and cultural competence in rating the performance of our organization’s leaders.

Our commitment to diversity has earned us many accolades, including recognition as an LGBT Healthcare Equality Leader, a distinction awarded by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation that recognizes healthcare institutions that are leading the way in providing equal care for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender patients.

Our focus on professional growth

At CHOP, we help children grow and thrive — and we offer these same opportunities to the professionals who make up our team. CHOP is a unique work environment, with exceptional team members, supportive managers and state-of-the-art training. Our employees are all empowered to realize their well-defined goals, because we believe everyone makes a difference — it’s the very foundation on which our hospital was built.

All nurses at CHOP participate in the Professional Advancement Program, which provides a foundation for clinical development and career progression. We believe the process of learning is an invaluable tool, and encourage our nurses to exercise their ambitions and take their skills to the next level at every opportunity.

Our benefits program

We offer employees a comprehensive and competitive benefits program. Our total rewards package meets employees’ individual needs as well as those of their families.

Our benefits are designed to support our diverse workforce, so our offerings are vast and varied. We’ve designed our benefits program based on the belief that all employees need flexibility, financial security, a meaningful work experience and work-life balance. All of our benefits programs focus on achieving and maintaining our employees’ well-being.

Our 2019 $5,000 Education Award Winner is…
Jerrisha (Risha) Goines of Minneapolis, MN! Written by: Pat Magrath, National Sales Director

Jerrisha (Risha) Goines of Minneapolis, MN just graduated with her BSN on May 25 from St. Catherine University in St Paul. Congratulations Risha on your graduation and for being our 2019 Education Award Winner! We know you are thrilled as the Education Award money is going toward your last semester tuition payment.

What was Risha’s path that drew her to Nursing? From the time she was in 5th grade, Risha was interested in the human body. She wanted to be a pediatrician and was also drawn to teaching in the medical field. Around this time, her cousin was born with a heart defect. Her family was told he had 2 years, but he lived until he was 5 years old.

The Nurse who took care of him was fantastic and had a huge impact on Risha and her family. This Nurse went above & beyond for her cousin and Risha’s family and became a very close family friend. They knew the doctor, but they really got to know the Nurse as she was always there helping in any way she could. They trusted her and built a strong relationship.

Because of this deeply personal experience and fascination with the medical field, Risha set her sights on becoming a Pediatric Nurse. She loved the idea of working with children because “children are so resilient and adjust well to their circumstances. Kids are so fun and so cute!”

Risha just finished her preceptorship working in the NICU at Children’s Minnesota and hopes to work at Children’s full time.  She’s taking the boards the end of June and hopes to be accepted to their new grad program that starts July 15. She’s taking the NCLEX around this time as well. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that all goes well!

Risha stated that she’s been blessed with terrific internships. Her work experience includes being a Personal Care Assistant, Home Health Aide, and Customer Service Rep at a bank. She’s currently a CNA at Methodist Hospital in St Louis Park in Labor & Delivery. Her long term plans include becoming a NP with a specialization in Neonatology. She’s interested in preventative medicine too.

The Nurse who took care of her cousin is always on her mind. She thinks about how phenomenal she was in her caring and giving attitude. Risha said “your mood and attitude directly affects the patient. Even if you’re having a bad day, you have to try and hide it.”

She said “if a patient is being judged or was scared by a Nurse who treated them badly, it can affect their willingness to seek medical help in the future.” Risha is always cognizant of her attitude because of how it affects the patient. She said “if you’re a horrible Nurse, it impacts and makes a difference to the patient”.

I asked Risha what’s the best part of the work she’s done. She said “Helping is her Passion”. Creating relationships with her patients, helping them feel better, and doing the little things that make a difference is rewarding. Risha said “something as little as rubbing the feet and legs of a pregnant patient who is restricted to bedrest and seeing her gratitude makes me feel as good as the patient”. Again, it’s the little things that make a difference.

I asked her what is difficult about her work so far and she said “I get so attached to the babies and then they go home. I miss them”.

Risha is also a mother of a 6-year old boy. The end of May is a busy time for Risha and her son because not only did she graduate on May 25, her son is graduating kindergarten today, May 28. Woohoo – Congratulations to you both!
