The Declaration of Independence for Nursing

The Declaration of Independence for Nursing

June 8, 2021

COVID-19 has left many nurses disempowered and wanting to leave the nursing profession. On this episode, we continue to go "Rogue" and get political with "the Declaration of Independence for Nursing" written by Dr. John Silver RN, MSN, Ph.D.

Dr. Silver writes and speaks about political issues in nursing and healthcare. He has presented at multidisciplinary conferences both nationally and internationally on health policy, the restructuring of healthcare systems using the Public Utility Model, and the role of nursing in that process. He has also spoken to a variety of nurse practitioner groups on political tactics for prescriptive authority and independent practice. He also studied nursing theory, nursing leadership and has a particular interest in the political fracturing of nursing. In 2013, he published his book on political empowerment “just a union…of nurses.

Did COVID-19 Cause Super Gonorreha?

Did COVID-19 Cause Super Gonorreha?

January 28, 2021

There's no doubt COVID-19 has caused much destruction, but did it create 'Super Gonorrhea?' It's been one year since we first talked about "COVID-19" and the possibilities of a 'pandemic' on the horizon. No one could have imagined 2020 would have turned out the way it did and a 'coronavirus' would have become such a destructive ugly villain!

In this episode Jason Tetro "The Germ Guy" joins us once again to recap our 2020 episode Corona Virus: Should We Be Afraid? Jason will review the COVID-19 pathophysiology, why many people diagnosed with COVID-19 are getting pulmonary embolisms, brain aneurysms, and deep vein thrombosis. We'll also take a look at the COVID vaccines, mRNA, and why certain people are having reactions to the vaccine. The role Vitamin D plays in the immune system, does it really protect you against COVID-19? Are children with low vitamin D levels more susceptible to being carriers of COVID-19? Of course, we'll go over what type of medications people diagnosed with COVID-19 are being discharged with, especially why they are being prescribed Azithromycin? Is that causing 'Super Gonnorreah?' A fun episode you won't want to miss!

Jason Tetro is the Host of the Super Awesome Science Show Podcast, which is this year’s Canadian Podcast Awards Best Science and Medicine Podcast in Canada. He’s been researching microbes and our relationship with them for three decades and is a regular in news media.
