on Jun 6, 2018 2:00:35 PM By | Brian Mitchell | 0 Comments | benefits disability
In my previous post on benefits, we talked about life insurance as a gift for your family members. Disability is a gift for YOU and your family. In the same way life insurance helps replace your income stream for your family, disability insurance helps you maintain an income stream in the event you have an illness or injury that prevents you from being able to work.

What to Say (and NOT to Say) When Praying with Patients

on May 24, 2018 6:05:33 PM By | Farzad Nourian | 1 Comment | healthcare as ministry prayer mission
Serving as a hospital chaplain, I’ve prayed with countless patients and their families over the years. All my prayers were sincere, but in my early years, there were times I said things that may have done more harm than good. As I interact with nurses, physicians, and other health care team members, I’ve come to see that I am not the only one who is occasionally at a loss for words, or who may accidentally say the wrong thing in an attempt to comfort others. When your heart goes out to a person who is hurting and you want to lift their concerns in prayer, here are some suggestions that may help you do it gracefully.

Nursing Sign-on Bonuses: Are They Real or Should You Run?

on May 17, 2018 11:12:18 AM By | Dan Mealo | 1 Comment | compensation pay hiring event sign-on bonus
Top football, baseball, and basketball players expect a sign-on bonus when they get drafted to go pro. The prospect of a sign-on bonus is probably not what drew you to become a nurse though.

AHS Moms Share Their Tips for Maintaining Work-Life Balance

on May 11, 2018 1:27:42 PM By | Steven Collins | 5 Comments | Mothers Day work-life balance working moms
Let’s get one thing straight from the beginning: achieving perfect work-life balance is not for the faint of heart. It’s like walking a tight rope with arms outstretched, constantly shifting your weight to avoid falling off on either side. There are a lot of moms out there who seem to be pros, but keep in mind that even the most experienced tightrope walkers don’t live on the rope all the time! They slowly master stretches, first balancing for 10 feet, then 20, then 50, etc. Eventually, with plenty of practice (and falls), they can cross canyons without blinking an eye.

I realize that life insurance isn’t the most exciting topic. In fact, some people may not want to think about it at all. If you associate it with coffins and funerals, that makes sense. However, I encourage you to think of it instead as a gift that you leave your family members. It enables them to pay for your final expenses without incurring financial hardship, and it can continue to support them in your absence.
