National Hand Washing Awareness Week is December 7th-13th

Wash Your hands cover[1]

The Power is in Your Hands

In the midst of the cold and flu season, you can take control of your own well-being and help protect those who live and work around you. By practicing a few, simple handwashing behaviors, you can decrease the risk of contracting and spreading respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses – like H1N1 and the seasonal flu.

Keep Germs Out

Germs enter your body through direct contamination of the eyes, nose and mouth… at the hands of your own hands! Frequent handwashing is one sure way to safeguard against illness. Another way to battle germs is through flu vaccinations which help lower your reaction to viruses. Talk to your Healthcare professional about a plan to keep you and your family healthy this winter.

Four Simple Steps to Stop Germs from Spreading:

• Wash your hands frequently: before you eat and when they’re dirty
• Do NOT cough into your hands
• Do NOT sneeze into your hands
• Do NOT touch your nose, eyes, or mouth with your hands – instead, use a clean tissue when touching these areas of your face

How to Teach Young Children About Nursing

Nurse products for kids

Nurse Nicole visits Stuffy Bear Factory at Chesterfield Town Center, VA.

Goal:
Explore fun and creative methods to teach young children about the profession of nursing.

Objectives:
1. Develop products to introduce nursing as a future career choice to young children.
2. Display products to introduce nursing as a future career option for young children.

Nurse product line:

The nursing shortage has drawn attention to the need to encourage young children to choose nursing as a future career goal. The Adventures of Nurse Nicole is designed to help young children become aware of nursing. Helps children develop skills that are needed to become a nurse. The products will focus on the current realities related to what nurses do in the nursing profession. The tools developed are age-specific such as books titled, “N is for Nurse & Wash Your Hands.” In addition, another tool is an age-specific animated DVD titled, “Battle of the Germs.” Other items available are bears and t-shirts for children. The information reviewed in the books and DVD was used by a nurse to create teaching materials for children.

Free nursing gifts are available on site when Nurse Nicole visits Stuffy Bear factory at Chesterfield Town Center, VA or visit the website http://www.nursenciole.co

Happy Holiday Season,
