Healthcare Professionals Registry
Our health-care system is facing huge obstacles. Personnel shortages caused by cost-cutting policies, an aging population, increased patient demand and need, and an aging workforce placed stress on healthcare workers’ working conditions and impact patient care and health outcomes. A growing body of evidence indicates that sufficient staffing leads to better patient outcomes and greater patient and staff satisfaction. The need for sufficient resources in all healthcare environments persists. FCNS has been involved in providing quality healthcare professionals to multiple healthcare organizations across several counties in Northern and Southern California and in Nevada.
Secure staffing is important both for the healthcare professionals and for the health care system as a whole. Staffing affects all healthcare workers’ ability to provide healthy, high quality care in all settings of work. We will provide safer healthcare for all by providing quality nurses and allied healthcare providers that we throughly screened before employing them in our organization.
All of our staff members go through series of training that we provide within our organization to maintain quality workforce and keep them all informed of the expectations set before them as First Call Nursing Services staff members.

Nurses Are The Unsung Heroes
Nurses are the unsung heroes of healthcare, caring for patients with compassion and dedication in a silent way. They carry out their duties without fanfare every day across the globe, saving lives, bringing healing to the ill and promising dignity to the dying. They are also among the first to respond during calamities and emergencies, often at considerable risk.
Although health nursing started out as a single, distinct profession, over the years it has grown to differ between home health and public health nursing, with other community-based nursing positions such as parish nursing and outpost nursing now recognized as involving community health nursing principles and competencies.
Community health nurses respect the roots and traditions of their common practice while embracing advances that promote the continuing evolution of community health nursing as a dynamic nursing specialty. Nurses practice in homes, shelters, schools, churches and community health centers. They work with the community to plan and execute community growth and health promotion and disease prevention strategies.
Community nurses are well prepared and well positioned to improve the condition and well-being of communal residents. The evidence available is convincing that community nurses are having a positive impact on the health of individuals, families and populations. Large investigations and cost-benefit analysis of nursing and numerous other components of the large community services are still to be carried out. While the training services do a good job of preparing nurses for community service, the nursing schools will need to revisit efforts to ensure that their services support the improvements in practice standards. Both educators and employers have incentives to use emerging tools that incorporate teaching approaches in electronic and human terms. A coordinated effort by nursing organizations and public policymakers to encourage the value of communication and administrative support for community nurses and their members could promote their quality of work-life, which could further improve healthcare impact on community health and enhance community nursing profile.
Nurses work through the field of health / illness, which for the rest of the public and policy-makers who best understand serious disease is impossible to comprehend. Home care nursing programs are under extreme pressure because there is no policy alignment with hospitals. Even so hospital-based nurses don’t seem to understand their colleagues’ position in the group. Registered nurses and their employers need to work more coordinated to build and sustain community relationships. Over time, these partnerships with populations will allow nurses to recognize health issues and respond quickly to problems and epidemics based on the community.
We conclude that lack of hope and intent is one of the main risk factors to good health. We all need these and, in many ways, patients become sick without them. Patients tend to find hope and meaning in life as nurses take time, listen to others and think about them, not only about their BP or medication list, but about who they are and what’s going on in their lives. Nurse practitioners do make a difference, but the news headlines are not necessarily. They don’t aspire to be heroes, but they have the chance to be a part of the lives of patients in a special way. I hope we keep seeing the nurses in the headlines, going beyond the call of duty and behaving in crisis situations in a selfless way. We also need to see more nurses in the news for community service programs, policy efforts and a safer environment for our neighborhoods and our world. But much of what they do aren’t going to be included in news reports. Headlines allude to the unique and unusual events. The difference nurses make is impressed more indelibly in the hearts of the people they build relationships with in our work and in the rest of their lives. Nurses do something to make something special for that person in every patient visit, every interaction. Not only are they saving lives, too. In many cases, nurses do care. They treat the patient as a whole through providing comfort and care. Let us not miss a chance to exchange words of gratitude, appropriateness and hope to the heroes of our community, the nurses. They genuinely make the world a better place. As the saying goes, “We’d all be worse without a nurse.”
