Gillian Ehrlich, RN, 2009-2010 Winners, Nurses' Educational Funds, Inc.:"Gillian Ehrlich's mission is to make holistic health our common ground in medicine and improve universal access to primary care. This vision of health evolved over a decade spent working mainly with non-profit organizations in direct-service level positions. Beginning with the Pacific Crest Outward Bound School and other wilderness programs, she shared with adolescents the elements required for healthy living: food, shelter, community, exercise, purpose and competency, joy and fresh air. Onto this foundation, she added a season of growing organic food for 25 families in southwest Ohio and functioning as a teacher and domestic violence counselor on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in Lake Andes, South Dakota. Health has been the consistent thread and nursing became the venue for the life-long application of these skills and values. Gillian graduated with a BA/BS degree from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington and a BSN from Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She balances her understanding of allopathic medicine with 1000+ hours of Ayurvedic training with Dr. Vasant Lad in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Pune, India. She emerged with sound convictions that health and contentment are possible for each of us, that authentic relationships and a clean environment account for much of this, and that we start healing from whatever shoes in which we currently stand. Gillian currently works as an RN at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington and is studying towards a Doctorate of Nursing Practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner at the University of Washington. Her focus is relationship-centered care, innovative health delivery systems and integrating complementary and alternative medicine into public health primary care."

Canadian Holistic Nurses Association:"Every individual is a whole and unitary human being with an energy field which is in process with the environmental energy field. When human beings participate consciously in change, we believe they tap into their potential for healing and well being. We believe that a nursing conceptual framework based on human environmental field theory is the foundation for holistic nursing practice."

Sunday, 16 January 2005: Self-Care: Why Is It So Hard?:"Although self-care activities should be common sense, "nurses often tend to put everyone else's needs ahead of their own [and are] so caught up in their professional life and its demands that they don't seem to have the time or energy to take care of themselves" (Swanson, 2004, p. 8). Some work environments actually seem to promote self-neglect. Such environments are recognizable by "hall talk," which goes something like this: "Oh, I'm just frantic this week; I have so many deadlines I couldn't accomplish them if I cloned myself 10 times.""I know what you mean, I haven't eaten dinner with my family once this week, and tonight will be no exception.""My work weeks typically average 55 to 60 hours, and I still can't seem to get on top of the demands."

Wellness Programs Can Offer $$, by Kristin Cassell:"Emeril isn't afraid to "Kick it up a Notch" so why not add a little spice and variety to your normal work schedule? Today, wellness programs are gaining speed in the private sector. HMO's, PPO's, health services, and even grocery store pharmacies are offering wellness services from glucose testing to flu shots. College campuses and corporations are requesting health screenings and immunizations. Why not use this as an opportunity to cook up a little cash while breaking the monotony? Seasonal vaccinations are a great way to earn extra dollars on the spot to put in your vacation piggy bank. In the winter, flu and pneumonia shots are a big draw. In the fall, college campuses are focusing on vaccinating all incoming and current students. Chuck Hackett at Maxim Health Services explains, "Nurses enjoy the gratification of helping people in an atmosphere different from a hospital or clinic." With the need for flu vaccinations reaching crisis proportions, wellness companies are diligently working to supply the population in need. As of early last December, Maxim has provided over 24 thousand vaccinations in grocery stores, wholesale outlets, pharmacies, senior centers and corporations. "This is a great opportunity for nurses to work in a new territory and a different way to apply their practice and knowledge," said Hackett."
