I believe there are issues with all senior leadership — men and women. At the hospital where I work, the VP for Women and Children, the Chief Nursing Officer, and the Director of Human Resources are women. They have not been advocates for the nurses at our hospital. Nurses voices are not taken seriously. Front-line nurses have met with these senior staff and nothing changes. It is very frustrating. Why do some women in senior hospital leadership not advocate for a women-centered profession. By the way, clinical nurses are NOT treated as professional but as assembly line workers.

Greetings to all,Its so unfortunate that in Africa it's not only being invisible or not getting enough recognition and pay but also the fact that the doctors usually look down on us. Most of the Nurses in my country are now suffering from infiriority complex which is at times instilled during their school days. Unfortunately the nurses in senior management positions do nothing about this ! It's very frustrating.

I see daily there is a jealous factor expressed by females! affecting nurses internally
Mallikarjuna
01:00:38
nurses themselves to be blamed for not maintaining unity
Mallikarjuna
01:01:02
agree or disagree??
Hamis Miiro
01:01:47
I do agree with as I have witnessed that so many times in my country.
Alice Collete Alum
01:03:41
From Alum Alice Collete I also agree with you it is the same in my country
Pardeep Kaur
01:03:55
I do agree about poor unity in nurses,
Mallikarjuna
01:05:05
nurses want comfortable zone and doesn't want any changes to be brought. 95%nurses will be silent and 5% support the change. this is the biggest block for development of nursing
Vince Blaser
01:06:24
Hi panelists - many good questions I will aim to get to several, but I encourage you all to directly respond to some of the questions both in the chat and the Q&A.
Suzanne Mintz
01:08:04
I believe nurses fear speaking out for fear of losing their job.
Mallikarjuna
01:09:33
agreed with Suzanne mintz
Hamis Miiro
01:09:37
We don't have job security in our settings especially in the private sector. Nurses can't say or speak out even when they have the right idea or are in the right for fear of losing their jobs.
Alice Collete Alum
01:09:39
The small percent who come up to help lead nurses are put down by the fellow nurses
Mallikarjuna
01:10:36
but it's involuntary helpless, and authority obidience, nurses doesn't even respond in very severe issues to show unity except for salary issues is my personal observation
Nisha Mathews
01:11:00
Do we have any research initiatives related to this? I would love to collaborate and explore more. Nisha Mathews from Texas

01:12:58
obviously, just see the NMC bill in India Wer all doctors opposed as they feared sharing autonomy to nurses but sad part is none of nursing unions together supported the bill. it's difficult to bring all nursing unions together and stand for one point
Mallikarjuna
01:14:04
nursing doesn't even have common job descriptions all over india
Mallikarjuna
01:14:19
no Wer nurse patient ratio is a quality indicator
Nisha Mathews
01:15:00
Thank you, DR. Nandilli!
Meshack Otewa
01:15:34
I think we should move the gender conversations because at the end of the day we are all nurses. This brings inter cadre fightings that prevent us from look at more important issues like employment, better healthcare
Mallikarjuna
01:15:58
I don't believe nursing shortage reports in India, it's the lack of places to work with better salary n autonomy
Mallikarjuna
01:17:44
to speak about gender equality nursing should have 50% male and 50% female to expect changes
Edward Halloran
01:17:48
Nurses have been aligned with hospitals and medicine. Re-alignment with Public Health may be a timely approach to addressing the needs of humanity more directly. The ICN's articulation to the UN Sustainable Development Goals is a step away from medicine as nurses are involved with 15 of 17 UN SDGs only one of which deals with health.
Nisha Mathews
01:17:55
I agree on that. Nurses should be appreciated and compensated more in India.
Kieran McCormick
01:20:48
I completely agree with my colleague Meshack. we should move away from gender differences in nursing, we are all nurses regardless of gender. We should as a profession support and encourage our colleagues to develop into and in leadership roles regardless of gender.

01:21:58
but nurses are not engaged in decision making , policy making, not in health related issues but even in nursing related issues

My thoughts above ☝️
Dr Marilyn DeLuca
01:22:16
Dear colleagues,
Hamis Miiro
01:23:51
We had a situation of a nurse wheeling a patient from one hospital to another in my country (Uganda) so as to better serve and help her patient as she was denied an ambulance but all the Nurses in senior positions including the UNMC did was to blame her for being "unprofessional" which still makes me believe that it's not mainly about/because we don't have nurses in senior management positions but rather the severe lack of unity in the nursing profession ( atleast as observed in my country)

01:26:23
Congratulations on this important session. Its important for us to engage with our colleagues in other clinical and leadership disciplines. We should work to obtain appointments on local, regional, national boards and committees with other health leaders and especially by participating in cross-sector Boards and Committees. Stay healthy all, Marilyn Deluca, NYU

All,
Dr Marilyn DeLuca
01:37:42
All, Are there plans to develop an Global Action Plan derived from the conversation today, to advance nurses in leadership? I would recommend that we consider this and perhaps identify several pillars: institutional (hospitals, universities; Government & pubic health entities; Advocacy groups [engage with the Women in Global Health and other such like-minded groups0; communication/media [ being pro-active in getting stories in front of TV and radio newscasters} This could

Good Morning!Thank you very much for the opportunity to hear this reflection today. I believe that a strategy would be to think about changing nursing education. Mindset change happens in the long run. What do you think about it? Should we promote this at the university to have sustained change?
Barbara Stilwell

But ICN’s analysis, based on data from our National Nursing Associations, official figures and media reports from a limited number of countries, indicates that more than 230,000 HCWs have contracted the disease, and more than 600 nurses have now died from the virus.
