ICN Urges All Governments To Sign WHO’s Health Worker Safety Charter And Tackle The Dangers Faced By Nurses

International Council of Nurses (ICN) welcomes World Health Organization’s Health Worker Safety Charter launched today on World Patient Safety Day, after ICN’s own survey released earlier this week showed the extent of the dangers nurses face at work.   ICN’s report, Protecting Nurses from COVID-19 a Top Priority, has revealed how governments have failed to protect nurses and confirmed that more than 1,000 have died after contracting the virus.  

The report contains the results of a world-wide survey which lays bare the severity and magnitude of the dangers nurses and other healthcare workers face in the line of duty.

ICN Chief Executive Office Howard Catton said:   “Our report confirmed the magnitude and the severity of the risks nurses and healthcare workers (HCWs) around the world are facing now. More than 1,000 nurses have died, millions are infected with the coronavirus, shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) still exist, staff are not routinely being tested and they are still subject to violence and discrimination.  

‘Governments around the world have been slow or failed to protect nurses and others from the effects of the pandemic, and that’s why we’re calling on all governments, right here, right now, to sign the WHO charter and act on it.”   ICN has long argued that the safety of nurses and other healthcare workers should be a priority for governments so that patient safety can be guaranteed. It worked with WHO to develop the charter – Mr Catton is a member of WHO’s Patient Safety Network – and made recommendations about what needs to be done.  

The Charter contains many of ICN’s recommendations, including on zero tolerance of violence and abuse, safe staffing levels, reducing work-related stress, improving work-life balance, having all the equipment needed to do the job safely, including PPE, and open communication in the workplace.  

ICN is firmly backing the Charter and will work with its National Nursing Associations to encourage all governments to sign up and identify those that do not.   “The world already has a severe shortage of nurses: it cannot afford to lose any more, especially not now at the height of a global pandemic.  

‘As our report shows, it is hugely important for healthcare worker safety to be centre stage in the design and delivery of healthcare services.  

‘The pandemic is far from over and while the applause has stopped, nurses and the patients they care for are still in the eye of this deadly storm. Governments must commit to putting the safety of their healthcare workers at the centre of how their health systems are organised and managed. Doing so will improve health outcomes for their people and increase safety and security for their staff, and it will save nurses’ lives.”  

The theme of today’s WHO Patient Safety Day is Health Worker Safety: A Priority for Patient Safety.  

Mr Catton concluded, “Our report and the Charter recognise that health worker safety and patient safety are two sides of the same coin – you cannot have one without the other they are indivisible.”

ICN Report Shows Governments Are Failing To Prioritize Nurses As Number Of Confirmed COVID-19 Nurse Deaths Passes 1000

On the eve of the World Health Organization’s World Patient Safety Day which this year focuses on health workforce safety, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) launches its latest COVID-19 report.

The report which includes a survey of a number of ICN’s National Nurses Associations reveals the continuing and catastrophic increase in the number of deaths and infection rates of nurses due to COVID-19.

ICN calls on governments to address their collective failure to prioritize health workers across the board, including lack of data collection on infection rates and inadequate PPE, particularly in care homes, as well as inadequate testing and IPC training, plus extensive reports of violence and discrimination against nurses, and a lack of mental health support.  

The report finds that more than 1000 nurses have died in 44 countries where data was available, with health worker infection rates on average around 10% of total infections globally.

This suggests that with almost 30 million people infected with the virus, as many as three million may be health workers. The survey also reveals less than half of countries surveyed classify COVID-19 as an occupational disease, which has serious implications for compensation from illness to death.

ICN President Annette Kennedy said, “ICN’s latest survey is a disturbing snapshot of how nurses and other health workers are still being exposed to COVID-19 and all its associated risks, including violence and prejudice, mental illness, infection and in what we now believe to be possibly thousands of cases, making the ultimate sacrifice by paying with their lives.  

‘We talk about the new norm created by the pandemic, but it has also confirmed some long-understood truths in the nursing community, that nurses are undervalued, underpaid and sometimes treated as expendable. This is a scandalous situation which ICN urges governments to rectify.”  

ICN CEO Howard Catton said, “The report’s findings add to a growing list of failures by governments to act to protect nurses and other health workers during the pandemic.

By not collecting data on deaths and infections or recognising COVID-19 as an occupational disease, governments are effectively looking the other way. The consequence is that staff are left without equipment, training, testing, mental health or financial support. Make no mistake: by putting staff at risk governments are also putting patients at risk.

This ICN COVID-19 report coincides later this week with World Patient Safety Day which will shine further light on health workforce safety. The simple and undeniable truth is that health workforce safety and patient safety are two sides of the same coin, you cannot have one without the other.”  

Commenting on the breadth and depth of the psychological pressures nurses are facing highlighted by the survey, Mr. Catton said, “There is a huge hidden mental health risk to our nursing workforce submerged below the surface of the pandemic. ICN research indicates the real scale of the mental health legacy of COVID-19 will undoubtedly mean that sickness, absenteeism, burnout and nurses leaving the profession because of ill health will increase, making shortages even more severe and resulting in an unquantifiable loss of experience.”

RCN Considers 2021 vote on Re-joining International Council of Nursing

Discussions are underway at the Royal College of Nursing for a potential 2021 vote on the college re-joining the International Council of Nurses.

The RCN International Committee is liaising with RCN Council on ways it could consult members on the issue ahead of a possible vote at the RCN annual general meeting (AGM) next year.

The college left the ICN, a global network of more than 100 national nursing organisations, in 2013 over concerns about costs.

For more than three years, the We Are Global Nurses group – made up of RCN members – has been lobbying for the college to sign back up, and managed to secure a debate on the matter at RCN Congress in 2019.

RCN Council subsequently agreed to gather details of membership from the ICN, to ensure the latest information was available ready for a vote on re-joining.

The ICN International Committee met on 8 September to discuss the next steps. The committee will now make recommendations to RCN Council on how an engagement exercise with members could be held ahead of a potential vote on ICN membership at the 2021 AGM.

Nurse campaigners fighting for the move told Nursing Times they were “really pleased” that such developments had been made.

Previously, We Are Global Nurses had raised concerns after writing several letters to RCN leaders seeking updates but receiving no reply.

However, at the end of February the RCN had confirmed to the group that it was involved in an “ongoing dialogue” with the ICN.

In a joint statement, registered nurses Jeni Watts and Paul Jebb, who are leading the campaign for ICN membership, welcomed the latest update, although noted their “frustration” at how long the process had taken.

They said the events of 2020 had shown that there was “never a better time to have the strength, power and unity of a global alliance” and that few issues affecting nursing – such as pay and safe staffing – were unique to the UK.

“Ultimately it will be the decision of all RCN members if we re-join but our group will continue to raise awareness of the importance of global working, solidarity, and the good work of ICN,” they added.

“We have full confidence that RCN Council will ensure a meaningful conversation on global nursing and what we can gain and give through this global alliance.”

The ICN has taken a leading role in campaigning on behalf of nurses during the coronavirus pandemic on issues including personal protective equipment and abuse against nurses.

Its current chief executive, Howard Catton, was head of policy and international affairs at the RCN for 10 years before taking up a role with the ICN in 2016.

CGFNS Expands Services To Criminal Background Checks (Fingerprints) For Nurses

You will now be able to complete your criminal background check to board of Nursing through CGFNS

Global mobility is a defining feature of today’s workforce. For many organizations, this requires more comprehensive screening systems to make better informed decisions about their applicants, especially as technology enables increasingly sophisticated fraud and as public and patient safety is on the line during the current pandemic.

As the leading authority on international health professional credentials and licensure, CGFNS International, Inc. is pleased to announce the expansion of its authentication and verification services to include international criminal background forensics capabilities.

“CGFNS’ rigorous evaluations and reporting—relied upon by government agencies, regulatory authorities, and other organizations—are the industry standard for capturing the qualifications of foreign-educated nurses and allied health professionals. This is because we have 43 years of experience forecasting, adapting, and developing innovative solutions to the evolving challenges our clients face in an increasingly globalized world,” said Franklin A. Shaffer, EdD, RN, FAAN, FFNMRCSI, President and CEO of CGFNS International. “We are proud to begin offering an international background check component alongside our credentials evaluation services to further support patient safety and public safety, which are at the core of our work, that of our clients, and of course, the work of our applicants.”

Through its International Consultants of Delaware division, CGFNS piloted the integration of international criminal background checks with the launch of its Credentials Evaluation for The Association of Canadian Psychology Regulatory Organizations in July 2020 and continues to explore further opportunities across its service offerings.

As part of these efforts, CGFNS has entered into an exclusive strategic alliance with TruDiligence, an applicant screening company accredited by the Professional Background Screening Association, to ensure international criminal background forensics of CGFNS applicants are accurate, prompt, and in line with industry standards.

About CGFNS International, Inc.
Founded in 1977 and based in Philadelphia, CGFNS International is an immigration-neutral not-for-profit organization proudly serving as the world’s largest credentials evaluation organization for the nursing and allied health professions.

NCSBN Makes Modifications to NCLEX-RN From Oct. 1, 2020, Abolishes R.O.O.T Rules

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NCSBN introduced several carefully evaluated and tested
modifications to the NCLEX examinations.

To ensure the reliability and legal defensibility of the exam, NCSBN conducted numerous simulations
and comparisons against historical NCLEX results along with continuous evaluation of the modifications to the exam put into place during the COVID-19 pandemic. All modifications and live exam results confirmed the consistency of measurement properties and did not identify any negative impact on candidate results or testing experiences.

These modifications are set to expire on Sept. 30, 2020. Based on the continued statistical and
psychometric strength of the modifications, NCLEX exams will retain some of the characteristics of the modified exam while reinstating some of the essential aspects of the exam that were put on hold because of the pandemic. The exam will continue to utilize the computer adaptive testing (CAT) methodology for administration and scoring. The NCLEX Test Plans will remain the same and the passing standard will not change.

Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, the following modifications will be made to both the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN examinations:

• Pretest items will be reintroduced. Each candidate will get 15 pretest items in their exam.

• The minimum number of scored items will be 60, and the maximum number of scored items
will be 130.

• Due to the addition of the 15 pretest items, the minimum length exam will be 75 items and the
maximum length exam will be 145 items.

• Examination time will be five hours.

• Given the changes to the maximum exam length and the testing time, the current Run Out of Time (R.O.O.T) scoring rule is no longer applicable.

§ The final ability estimate will be computed from the responses to all completed items. Those scoring above the passing standard will have a passing exam, otherwise the exam will be scored as a fail.

• The voluntary NGN Special Research Section will be reintroduced. § We encourage all candidates to participate in this important research effort for the nursing profession. Additional information about this important research can be viewed at NGN FAQs.

• The NCLEX Tutorial will be replaced with a general guide and test taking tips.

§ All candidates are strongly encouraged to take the online tutorial to practice with the item types prior to sitting for the exam.

If you have any specific questions about the examination changes, please contact NCLEX

How to Become a Registered Nurse in New Zealand/Australia: My Experience by Walex

This is an ongoing post by Walex on Nursesarena.com shared by permission

Good morning everyone I’m back. I’m Walex and will be taking us through the process of how to practice as a nurse in New Zealand.This thread is going to be based on my personal experience, I will provide you with dates, cost, timelime etc like I did during my USA Nurse registration journey back then.

About Me

I’m Walex by name from Nigeria. I’m a Registered Nurse in Nigeria. I later pursued my USA Nurse registration and got registered as a Nurse in USA but due to the visa ban on Nigerians I decided to move to the UK. I’m presently a registered nurse in UK and work in one of the NHS Hospitals in England.

I had plans of moving to Australia before and I just rekindled that dream. However, due to the recent change in the Australian licensure process I figure out it won’t make sense to waste such a whole lot of money on the Australian process. I have therefore decided to register as a nurse in New Zealand and after that will endorse my licence to Australia.

I will be providing detailed process of the application process and update you on the progress thus far. if you have a question please don’t hesitate to drop it down below.

New Zealand Nurse Registration Requirements

1. You Must have a University Degree in Nursing (BSC NURSING)
2.Pass IELTS at recommended level. New Zealand accepts Academic IELTS.A minimum of 7 in speaking, listening, writing and reading is required. You can combine IELTS result (IELTS CLUBBING) provided the tests are taken within 12 months of first sitting. New Zealand also accepts results that are not more than 3years old as at the time CGFNS submit your report. If you are registered as a nurse and working in UK, USA or Canada, you don’t need IELTS result. For more explanation on this read https://www.nursingcouncil.org.nz/IQN/H5.aspx?WebsiteKey=fa279da8-a3b1-4dad-94af-2a67fe08c81b

3. Must have at least 2years working experience

Registration Stages

Stage 1: Credentials evaluation process through CGFNS. This involves creating an account with CGFNS, completing the application form, uploading your passport, etc  after that pay the application fees of 300 dollars. Note that the link is not through the normal CGFNS page for USA, I will include it below.

Step : Get approved, download the forms and send to appropriate authorities who will send them to CGFNS address in USA after completing them.

Stage 3: When the verification is completed, it will be sent to The Nursing Council New Zealand (NCNZ) who will invite you to apply.

Stage 4: You may need to undergo a 6 weeks program dined Competency Assessment Program. If you had worked in Canada, UK and USA as a nurse, you will be exempted from this.

After that you will have jour licence and you can now begin to look for work.

Step 5: For me and others who are doing this because of Australia, you will just make payment to Australia Nursing Board and your New Zealand license will be endorsed.

Now let me begin to gist you about my journey

Oops sorry this is coming late. I actually typed everything that night I posted the above but was logged out before I could post so I lost the epistle to the people of Rome I typed, I nearly cried.

Now let me get started

I created my account using this link https://cgfns.force.com/applicantPortal/s/login/Self Register and had to complete several pages laidat. The profile page asked about my basic information, license page asked about all the licences I have so I listed Nigeria, USA and UK license. You will need the date you took the exams and the date you are registered etc Then followed by my Schools, you will be required to complete all schools you have attended right from primary school to your secondary school and the date you graduated, the name you graduated with etc. Then you need to list all your previous employer (I listed my Nigeria and UK employers). Then all professional CPD you have attended with dates you started and completed etc.

An area that is tricky is the identification page where you need to upload 2 forms of notarized identification. For me I uploaded my international passport and UK govt issued identity card. I first made a colored photocopy of the 2 identity cards and then went to the nearest post office in my area (South Bermondsey Post office in London) to have it notarized, it cost me approximately £13.

I uploaded only the notarized document (and not the original ones).
I completed the ielts section by including my TRF number and exam date. (I sha include my ielts despite I will be exempted).

After completing the application form, I made payment of 300 dollars and submitted my application form on the 25th of August, 2020

Immediately after payment I received an email from CGFNS telling me that my application has been received and wait until it is approved before doing anything. About 4 hours later I received an email that my application has been approved that I can now proceed to download the forms and send them to their respective places.

I logged in and nearly fainted at the amount of documents I need to download, I was like I don enter gbege for cgfns hand ó they sha wan help me spend my money 😝.

Employer verification form (both UK and Nigeria), Nigeria license verification, UK license verification, USA license verification, School of Nursing transcript request form and my University transcript request form. I sha download everything sha.

On 26th of August, 2020 I logged in and my IELTS status has changed to meets requirement.

My identity document status has changed to Ready for Evaluation but I saw a form to be completed by me in the presence of notary so I emailed cgfns, within 2hours they replied that it is only applicable to people who used online notary.

 26th of August, I contacted my school of Nursing, my UK and Nigeria employers to help complete my forms

28th of August, 2020 I logged into my UK NMC account and requested for the verification document to be sent to CGFNS, I paid £34 and the certificate was issued almost immediately

On Monday 31st of August, 2020 I will work on Nigeria verification and my University Transcript. For Texas Board of Nursing verification, I honestly don’t have any idea how I can go about that. I will email cgfns and ask whether they can accept to check my licence online using the Nursy website. If you know how to go about it please let me know. Bye for now
