    Kathleen Fisher, PhD, CRNP, a professor of nursing in the Doctoral Nursing department and three nationally known nurse ethicists—Catherine Robichaux, PhD, RN, Jeanie Sauerland, MA, BSN, RN, and Liz Stokes, JD, MA, RN—have published “A Nurses’ Ethical Commitment to People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities” in Nursing Ethics.

    They describe ethical tensions between paternalistic beneficence and idealized autonomy that have resulted in a lack of clear direction in working with a population that is often ignored or exploited. This builds on their prior work for the American Nurses Associations’ Center for Ethics and Human Rights published position statement titled: “Nurses’ Role in Providing Ethically and Developmentally Appropriate Care” (December 2019).

  • Antiracist word cloud

    A Call to Mobilize

    "I can't breath!" is paramount when a layperson or clinical practitioner hears these words! Someone is in distress. Nursing students are taught to jump to their feet and assess the steps #1-#2 of the ABCs (Airway, Breathing, Circulation). This comes before any other concern. It is a gasp or utterance sending chills down your spine. These three words were chosen specifically because there was only enough air left in the lungs of George Floyd and he chose his words carefully.

    CNHP must mobilize and acknowledge the African American faculty, professional staff and students impacted by the senseless murders of countless African American men and women including Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Aubrey. Don't ask how are you feeling; tell us what are you doing.

    We should all reach for oxygen!

    We should all reach for the defibrillator!

    We should all assist each other through curriculum enhancement, antiracist trainings, conversations throughout our CNHP community and installation of planned reforms.

    Why? Because justice must be a verb!

    There are very notable benefits from a meditation practice including reducing stress, promoting emotional health and reducing age-related memory loss. It doesn't matter if you've never meditated or you're a pro, everyone is welcome for these weekly, short guided meditation sessions.

    This is a wonderful opportunity to sit quietly with Drexel colleagues and friends and to learn how to better manage your stress and become more mindful in your everyday life. This time offers an opportunity for Drexel professional staff, faculty and students to reduce stress and grow in mindfulness and compassion together.

    Participants in our Wellness Incentive Program are eligible to earn 5 points (a $5 credit) for each session they attend on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.

    You must register for the annual program AND complete your annual PHP before you will be eligible to receive any payouts. Points for attending these events will be sent to Health Advocate on a monthly basis for the prior month’s activities.

    Bring a friend!
