REVOLUTION was one of the most exciting, hard-hitting, innovative, trailblazing and revolutionary magazines in the history of nursing. The premiere issued debuted in Winter of 1991 with Dr. Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio RN, PhD as the publisher and Joan Swirsky RN, MS as the Editor-in-Chief. In 1995, CNA withdrew from the nurse executive dominated American Nurses Association, a pattern later followed by other state nurses associations. We passed the magazine on to the California Nurses Association in 1998.
Our goal was to take issue with the “sacred cows” of nursing history: the academic programs that have failed to address the 20 th and 21 st century concerns, leaving nurses to flounder because curricula have omitted such vital subjects as law, business, ethics, etc.; the administrative policies that, in their Machiavellian way, have subordinated nursing autonomy and nursing’s potential for advancement, and have pitted nurse against nurse in their zeal to divide and conquer; political neglect that has consistently put nursing issues on the proverbial back burner; sexism and sexual abuse that have prevailed as a result of intimidation and threats, coupled with the nurse’s lack of knowledge about available legal strategies to combat this exploitation.
Since we have received so many calls from nurses who are interested in receiving our back issues, we have made some of the articles available on our website! We are also in the process of having a posttest after the articles so that you can obtain CE’s for a nominal fee.
National Nurse-To-Patient Ratios
We’ve all heard administration’s excuses: work smarter not harder, organize your time properly, you have nurse burnout. News Flash…it’s not us. It’s the environment in which we work. It is not our fault. It is the environment that we work in that is not conducive to rendering safe patient care.
We are and have been abused…for a long time! Financially, economically, morally, ethically and physically! It is not OK for healthcare institutions to abuse you! Forms of abuse include:
- No lunch breaks or bathroom breaks
- Forced to take an unsafe assignment
- Threatened verbally, bullied
- Being labeled a troublemaker or having a bad attitude if you speak out
- Threatened with termination for telling patients the truth about unsafe nurse:patient rations
