Meet UK Registered Nurse Who Gave Up Nursing to Become a Train Driver

When a friend first suggested that Laura MacDonald apply to become a train driver, she thought the idea was absurd.

She couldn’t even drive a car, let alone a train, and getting through the rigorous assessment process seemed a terrifying prospect.

But, as the months went on, she couldn’t get the idea of driving a train out of her head.

‘I loved being a nurse when I first started out and thought I’d do it forever,’ she says.

‘But after six years I began to find it increasingly stressful. I worked in a hyper-acute stroke unit at St George’s Hospital in London, and it was full-on – in the first year of the job I’d lost 2 stone from stress, I’d work 12-13 hours a day and was beginning to suffer from burnout.’

A chance meeting with a train driver called Polly changed everything. The pair got chatting on a night out, and Laura was fascinated to hear about Polly’s day-to-day life on the tracks of London.

Quickly, Polly became a close friend, and regularly told Laura what a fantastic train driver she’d make, too, because of how good she was at keeping a cool head.

‘It wasn’t a career that had ever crossed my mind,’ says Laura.

‘It’s such a male-dominated industry and I’d never been particularly into trains, although as a child I loved standing under the railway bridge in my hometown, waving at the trains to try and get them to beep at me.’

But the more she thought about it, the more Laura loved the idea, and tentatively began the application process. When she found out she’d been accepted for assessment, she was over the moon.

‘I couldn’t believe it was really happening,’ she says. ‘A few of my friends and family found it a bit weird and questioned why I’d want to give up nursing, a good career I’d worked so hard for. But I felt so sure I was doing the right thing.’

Just 5.4% of Britain’s 19,000 train drivers are women, and of the 15 people accepted on Laura’s cohort for assessment, three were women.

Assessments were gruelling: potential drivers need to prove they can focus on two things at once with psychometric tests, and that they have the right temperament for the job with a personality test.

There are also rigorous concentration tests, logical and numerical reasoning tests, mechanical aptitude tests and one-and-a-half-hour-long interviews.

‘I was so nervous because I wanted the job so badly,’ says Laura.

‘But I think being a nurse prepared me well for keeping a cool head under pressure. I studied obsessively but was convinced that I wasn’t going to pass. But on the last day the assessor shook my hand and said, “From one driver to another, well done, you’ve passed,” I was shell-shocked.’

For the next two years, Laura would undergo rigorous training, including 900 hours of classroom teaching and 225 hours on the track with an instructor. It wasn’t all smooth sailing – Laura sprained her ankle badly and was ‘off-track’ for six weeks.

But luckily the company were supportive and she made a full recovery.

In May this year, almost three years after submitting her initial application, Laura became a train driver.

‘I can’t tell you how much I love my job,’ she says.

‘I go to work every day with a smile on my face. I love being kept on my toes, and that feeling like you’re your own boss – if anything goes wrong you need to deal with it yourself. Then there’s the camaraderie between drivers. You see the same faces, and I’m always ready to wave at drivers I know.’

Laura learns one route at a time, and currently drives a train from Selhurst, Surrey to London Victoria. ‘I was petrified the first time I drove by myself,’ she says. ‘It was a short trip, just 55 minutes, but I loved it.’

Surprisingly, it’s not the constant concentration or the weight of responsibility that Laura finds most challenging. ‘Becoming confident about doing announcements over the tannoy has been tough,’ she says.

‘I’m shy and hate talking over the phone, so at first I would stumble or giggle. But I’ve got a lot better – I try to be funny or make the passengers aware I’m also a human being.’

Laura has a couple of female train driver friends, but the majority of her colleagues are male.

‘Most of the blokes are older and quite fatherly,’ she says. ‘We go for drinks and all get on so well – it’s a family feeling. It’s not a laddy culture, but there is a bit of banter.’

The majority of Laura’s friends have been supportive of her change in career.

But there are a few raised eyebrows when she tells new people what she does for a living.

‘People are surprised as it’s such a male-dominated job,’ she laughs. ‘One or two of my friends have made jokes about me being a stereotypical lesbian because I’ve got cats and a motorbike, and I drive trains.’

But there’s one person in particular who thinks Laura’s job is amazing. ‘My three-year-old niece loves telling people her Auntie Laura drives trains, and gets so excited when she sees one,’ says Laura.

‘I always give kids a beep when I see them from my window, just like the drivers did for me when I was little.’

Laura hopes more women will choose to go into careers traditionally seen as masculine. ‘To women who want to go into male-dominated roles, do it,’ she says.

‘Driving a train is an amazing job. I get so excited when I’m waiting for a train and there’s a female driver. You can do anything a man can do. There’s nothing to stop us doing what we want.’

Britain’s first female train driver

Laura found the world of train driving to be a warm and welcoming place, but things haven’t always been so good for female drivers.

When the late Karen Harrison became the first female train driver in the UK in 1978, she was subjected to a decade of physical and verbal harassment from colleagues who disapproved of her presence in a masculine world.

‘Ten years of hell. It’s a bit tough when you’re only a teenager and you’re hit by this gigantic tidal wave of hate,’ she said.

‘To a lot of the men, I was the proverbial turd in the swimming pool. Every day I walked into the mess room I’d be s**tting myself, but strutting about pretending not to be. I couldn’t let them create no-go areas for me; that would’ve established a precedent and we couldn’t have that – it would’ve been the beginning of the end.’

Karen campaigned heavily to improve life for women on the tracks and rose through the ranks of the train drivers’ trade union ASLEF, before eventually retiring to study law at Oxford University.

‘I find studying hard,’ she said. ‘But it’s easier than driving trains. It’s hard to get too stressed about exams when you’ve experienced brake failure approaching a red signal, especially when you can see another train crossing the junction in front of you.’

Female train drivers: the facts

Women account for just 5.4% of train drivers in the UK, up from 4.2% in 2012.
ASLEF, the train drivers’ trade union, has placed pressure on rail companies to improve diversity with specific recruitment campaigns for women.
The average train driver salary is £47,101, and perks include free or heavily discounted rail travel, long holidays, flexible working hours and decent pensions and maternity packages.

Nurses on Air Special Invitation to Nigerian Nurses on WE ACT4SDGs Campaign

On September 25th 2018, Nurses on Air following official partnership with the United Nations Action Campaign, will begin a full scale work on the WE ACT4SDGs 2018/2019 national media awareness campaign featuring ALL NIGERIAN NURSES at home and in the diaspora

The Current Dilemma for All Nigerian Nurses….

For over 3 decades, the Nigerian nursing image has been in a deep mess. With over 200, 000 nurses across the country and in the diaspora, it is pathetic to see the IMAGE OF NIGERIA NURSING BEING CONTINUOUSLY BATTERED AND VOICES OF NURSES STILL LESS HEARD!

On national print media pages, electronic media screens and on social media platforms, Nigerians and the international community are daily bombarded with negative news and image damaging projection of quacks and the profession’s bad eggs, than the numerous lifesaving acts of angelic nurses.
Are there any unanimously coordinated media efforts currently neutralizing this longstanding dilemma?

Below are heartbreaking answers:

1. There is no official media work positively projecting nurses as the health advocates and public health transformation agents – what they are naturally called to be, thus completely leaving the agelong disheartening misrepresentation unaddressed.
2. There is no single media health broadcast coordinated by professional nurses in the form of ‘national/international terrestrial/satellite based Radio or TV broadcast’ strategically dedicated to magnify the roles of nurses as independent healthcare practitioners, specialists and everyday lifesavers.
3. There is no running health education jingle, campaign advert or public health message sponsored by any Nigerian nursing institution (private/public) to either attend to, care for, or resolve the nagging health needs of the public. (The public knows we don’t care!)
4. There is no single family drama series, film or documentary specifically shot by nurses to portray how the real work of nurses can massively help impact individuals, families and communities, thus correcting public misconception, empowering the public, transforming nursing image and saving countless lives.
5. There has never been any official health educating audio-visual innovations on the social media (e.g. powerfully educative animated videos) or any other educative work in the history of Nigeria made by professional nurses for the purpose of public health education, enlightenment and image laundering (The creation of the only health advocacy animated video existing in the African continent, the perfect answer to the Vice President’s damaging animated video was spearheaded by Nurses on Air.).


Good Health for All – Impossible Without Massive Nursing & Media Advocacy

In September 2015, the nations of the world signed up to the ambitious goal of ensuring that everyone in the world would have access to quality health care – Universal Health Coverage – and that nobody should be left behind. On this moment, the United Nations held the historic adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals.
This significant event makes the month of September a very special month for Nigerian nurses. Why?

Nurses constitute the largest population (about two thirds) of the Nigerian healthcare workforce, and without us the Universal Health Coverage and the UN SDGs is a mere charade.

How Do we Take Our Rightful Place?

On September 25th 2018, the 3rd anniversary of the historic adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Nurses on Air Foundation, an action partner of the United Nation SDGs, will be collaborating with the entire Nigerian nursing community, every single vibrant young and older nursing leaders, federal and state regulatory bodies, leading national and state nursing associations and professional bodies. state and FG healthcare institutions, nursing departments in state and FG’s MOHs, non governmental organizations and all online groups representing Nigerian nurses, a host of official partners, stakeholders and corporate sponsors; to commission the biggest and most exciting collaborative media work of nurses in the history of the country – the first ever National Media Awareness and Public Health Advocacy unitedly orchestrated by Nigerian nurses.
From September 1st, 2018, the “#WEACT4SDGS” online portal with the link above will be opened for nationwide registration.

We therefore officially invite individual nurses and all organization leaders to begin immediate registration of their respective organizations, departments, establishment and groups as soon as possible to prominently feature in the first media shooting slated for Tuesday September 25th 2018.

Are you a team player or a team leader? Do you love the camera? Do you believe in the power of the media?
Are you or your team ready and willing to join hands, partner with the PUBLIC so we can unanimously re-brand the Nigerian nursing image via the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals and Universal Health Coverage?

We urge you to simply click the link above to register and actively participate in the upcoming nation shaking media campaign by nurses.
And don’t forget to re-broadcast this post to all your nursing friends and colleagues.

New Zealand Nurses aren’t getting their $2000 lump sum in their accounts

Nurses are upset they aren’t receiving the full lump sum payouts that were agreed at the district health boards’ pay deal that was struck this month.

The maximum gross payout agreed on was $2000, but people on the Facebook page “New Zealand, please hear our voice” are claiming to have been paid less than $1000.

But that’s because the payouts are subject to deductions for taxes, student loans and Kiwisaver, and they’re adjusted to reflect the hours a nurse worked.

As a part of the NZNO agreement with the district health boards, nurses were to get a lump sum payout.

123RF

As a part of the NZNO agreement with the district health boards, nurses were to get a lump sum payout.

New Zealand Nurses Organisation [NZNO] Industrial Advisor DHB, Lesley Harry, said: “I’m surprised to hear that people didn’t expect a lump sum to be taxed. Certainly our presentation to members was that it was the gross amount that the lump sum applies.”

Asked if nurses should have known their payments would be taxed, Harry said: “Well, I would have thought so.”

Many of those commenting on the payout were unhappy they wouldn't be receiving the full $2000.

FACEBOOK

Many of those commenting on the payout were unhappy they wouldn’t be receiving the full $2000.

Hamilton nurse Beka Mills said she’d been paid $1000 in a lump sum. She said nurses hadn’t realised how much a $2000 payout could be taxed.

Based on her hours worked, her gross payout should have been $1800, she said.

She hadn’t seen her full payslip yet, but thought the other $800 must have gone to tax, her student loan and Kiwisaver.

It appears that many nurses' lump sum payouts had been reduced significantly by taxes, student loan payments and Kiwisaver.

FACEBOOK

It appears that many nurses’ lump sum payouts had been reduced significantly by taxes, student loan payments and Kiwisaver.

“From what I’ve talked about with a lot of my colleagues is that nurses aren’t trained and don’t really work in numbers a lot, apart from in medication, and so I think that a lot of nurses sold themselves short because they didn’t actually sit down and do the calculations and say ‘what does this actually mean, what is actually going to be in my pocket from this deal’,” Mills said.

Asked if she thought nurses would be criticised for not having known lump sums would be taxed, Mills said: “Absolutely.

“I definitely did my calculations but still, from what’s going around, it caught a lot of people by surprise … I think that a lot of nurses are feeling quite deflated.”

One of many comments about the payout on the Facebook page "New Zealand, please hear our voice".

FACEBOOK

One of many comments about the payout on the Facebook page “New Zealand, please hear our voice”.

For many nurses, the payout had been a “big seller” in the pay deal or multi-employer collective agreement (MECA).

Harry said: “All aspects of the monetary offer, including the [lump] payment and increases to pay rates that we present are gross amounts. The tax regime varies depending on a person’s income.

“We’re not in a position to be able to calculate what the members will get after tax.”

NZNO had received “lots and lots” of queries about the lump sums and other issues relating to the agreement.

“At the moment, the lump sum is on the members’ mind as they wait for theirs … We have been in constant mode trying to respond to these queries.”

Ministry of Health internal and stakeholder communications advisor Blair Cunningham said the lump sum was to be paid “as soon as possible” once the pay deal had been ratified.

“Given the lump sum is paid out by District Health Boards, it will be up to each DHB to determine when these are made.

“The lump sum payments for both part-time and casual employees will be based on actual hours worked over the previous 12 months, up to the equivalent of 1 FTE.”

Harry said nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants in the DHB sector would all receive a lump payout.

“Some members will have their lump sum payments already and some members will need to wait until late September for their payment.”

Nurses, healthcare assistants and midwives and DHBs agreed on a MECA in early August following strike action, with more threatened.

Ohio Bill 726 would give Registered Nurse Practitioners Independence From Doctors

A new Ohio General Assembly bill would allow advanced practice registered nurses to work independently of physicians, an idea the Ohio State Medical Association calls potentially dangerous to patients.

Rep. Theresa Gavarone, a Bowling Green Republican, said House Bill 726 addresses primary care physician shortages throughout the state. But the medical association disputes there are shortages.

Advanced practice registered nurses, called APRNs, diagnose and treat diseases and can prescribe medicine.

APRNs must enter mandatory collaboration agreements with doctors under Ohio law, said Jesse McClain, president of the Ohio Association of Advanced Nurse Practitioners — which supports the bill.

McClain in a statement described the agreements as “little more than a fee APRNs pay to a physician in order to practice. Far from collaboration, this contract requires APRNs to provide a subset of their charts to physicians for review, while no actual collaboration regarding patient care occurs between the contracted physicians and APRNs.”

Over 20 U.S. states and the Veterans Administration allow APRNs to practice independently of doctors, Gavarone said. She would like Ohio to be another state that gives more independence to the nurses.

The medical association, on the other hand, argues that physicians undergo expensive, intensive training to understand the human body. APRNs provide a valuable service, but physicians need to lead medical teams because of their extensive knowledge, said Reggie Fields, a spokesman for the medical association.

A similar bill to HB 726 was introduced during the 2015-2016 Ohio legislative session.

Fields said the medical association worked with lawmakers to amend the bill, removing the provision that APRNs work independently in exchange for some changes to how the nurses practice – including removing a 15-hour externship requirement that had been necessary before they could have prescribing authority.

Fields said it’s disappointing that the bill is back.

“The elected leaders agreed that physicians should remain at the head of the medical team providing care for patients in the state of Ohio,” he said.

Gavarone and Fields both use data from the Association of American Medical Colleges to make a case that there are enough — or not enough — doctors in Ohio.

Fields pointed to last year’s study that showed Ohio has 93.9 primary care physicians per 100,000 people. The national average was 90.8 physicians. Ohio also has more younger physicians compared to other states: The state has the sixth lowest percentage of doctors over age 60 – at 27.5 percent. Nationally, the average is 30.3 percent.

Gavarone pointed to a Plain Dealer report showing that there has been a steadily increasing doctor shortage across the nation – with Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth System and University Hospitals saying they needed primary and specialty care doctors. The state is aging, which means more demand for doctors.

Her district spans all of Wood County, population 130,000.

“You’d be surprised to know how far of a drive it is in certain parts of the county to see a primary care physician — much less a specialist,” she said.

Access to care is a priority to Gavarone, who also is sponsoring a bill that would allow psychologists to obtain a master’s degree in psychopharmacology, undergo training and supervision and be able to prescribe psychotropic medicine to patients. She said she’s concerned about mental health. Other places, such as Illinois and all branches of the U.S. military, permit it.

The medical association also opposes that bill, saying people with Ph.Ds in psychology – even with the extra training – don’t understand how drugs interact in the body with other drugs and medical conditions outside the scope of mental health.

Nurses’ Role in Educating Patients to Reduce Health Risks of Prolonged Sedentary Time

Sitting for too many hours per day, or sitting for long periods without a break, is now known to increase a wide range of health risks, even if one engages in recommended amounts of physical activity. The health risks of prolonged sedentary time – and nurses’ role in reducing those risks – are discussed in an integrative literature review and update in the September issue of the American Journal of Nursing. The journal is published in the Lippincott portfolio by Wolters Kluwer.

But while the evidence on the adverse effects of prolonged sedentary time continues to grow, further studies are needed to determine “the most effective and practical interventions for reducing habitual sitting,” according to the article by Linda Eanes, EdD, MSN, of the School of Nursing at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Edinburg. She writes, “Nurses have a pivotal role to play in increasing public awareness about the potential adverse effects of high-volume and prolonged uninterrupted sitting.”

Health Risks of Too Much Sitting – What’s the Evidence?

In recent years, studies have shown a direct relationship between prolonged sitting and the risk of several chronic health conditions. Increased health risks have been reported both for high-volume sitting, such as sitting for seven or more hours per day, and for prolonged uninterrupted sitting, such as sitting for 30 minutes or longer without a break. The health risks of prolonged sitting are independent of whether the person participates in recommended physical activity.

In her review, Dr. Eanes summarizes pivotal studies showing the association between high-volume and prolonged uninterrupted sitting and health risks including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and all-cause mortality. In conjunction with obesity, sedentary time is also linked to an increased risk of certain cancers, including ovarian, endometrial, and colon cancer.

How does too much sitting increase health risks? Immobility decreases stimulation of weight-bearing muscles, leading to decreased activity of an enzyme (lipoprotein lipase) that plays an essential role in lipid metabolism, including production of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (the so-called “good” cholesterol) as well as uptake of glucose from the blood. In contrast, breaking up sedentary times with frequent bouts of standing or slow walking may reduce these metabolic risks–although the optimal levels of standing or walking remain unclear.

Nurses and other healthcare professionals now have a new priority: educating patients about the health risks of prolonged sedentary time and making suggestions to reduce and interrupt sitting times. Proposed interventions include using a standing desk or taking frequent walking or standing breaks, as well as the use of computer or smartphone reminders to take brief physical activity breaks during the day.

But questions remain about the most effective ways to address high-volume or uninterrupted sitting, including the “dose-response relationships” between sedentary behavior, taking breaks, and various health outcomes. In contrast to efforts to increase physical activity, merely providing people with information and education might be effective in promoting reduction of sedentary behavior. “Much more research is needed in the field of inactivity physiology,” according to the author.

While it’s still important to promote regular physical activity, nurses should pay more attention to evaluating total daily sitting time, and to understanding the individual, social, occupational, and community/environmental factors that contribute to it. “Nurses can also actively encourage all patients, regardless of demographics, to balance sedentary behavior and physical activity simply by taking more frequent standing or walking breaks,” Dr. Eanes writes. She believes that nurses are well positioned to contribute to research on the health risks associated with prolonged sitting – and the most effective interventions for reducing those risks.
