Board of Nursing complaint?

We’re 100% on your side.

You worked so hard to become a nurse. A South

Carolina Board of Nursing complaint is a threat to

your reputation, your career, and your livelihood.

Your whole career could be at risk if you

suddenly receive a letter from the South Carolina

Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation

(LLR) Office of General Counsel (Disciplinary

Counsel) about allegations of professional

misconduct against you. We can help you avoid

making a huge mistake. You may not have been

told that you can immediately seek your own

independent legal advice and help before even

thinking about making a statement or signing a

Consent Order prepared by LLR.

The Jeffcoat Firm has the knowledge and

experience to defend nurses. We’re setting the

standard for defending nurses in South Carolina.

The first consultation with an experienced lawyer

from the Jeffcoat Firm is completely free.

The sooner we begin defending you

and your career, the better.

TIPS ON PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURE

Parliamentary procedure must not be viewed as a set of arbitrary rules. It should be considered as the

application of common sense and logic in the conduct of a meeting. Compliance with this set of rules serves

to protect, and is directly related to, our jealously guarded ideal of democratic process. The great value of the

democratic process is open and orderly discussion which results in intelligent compromise. When general

consent is evidenced by a group, the importance of following parliamentary procedure becomes primarily that

of maintaining the orderly conduct of a meeting.

Democratic principles basic to the appropriate conduct of a meeting are as follows:

1. Justice and courtesy to all.

2. One thing at a time

3. Rule of the majority

4. Right of the minority to be heard.

The rules contained in the latest edition of ROBERT’S RULES OF ORDER shall govern meetings of this

association in all cases to which they are applicable and in which they are not inconsistent with these bylaws.

SOME RULES OF DEBATE

1. Recognition by the chair is, of course, the first step in presenting a motion.

2. Time will be saved if members will think carefully before wording a motion so as not to make it too

long, say what they really want and not include points of discussion in the motion.

3. All motions, other than those of a personal nature, must be in writing.

4. No business involving any kind of action should be conducted without a motion.

5. All main motions are debatable.

6. Debate begins after the motion is made.

7. Debate should be limited to the motion before the assembly.

8. Proposer of the motion may speak to it first.

9. Proposer of the motion may not speak against his/her motion, but may vote against it.

10. Address remarks through the presiding officer; do not speak directly to other members during debate.

11. Avoid personalities. The motion is under discussion not the proposer.

12. The presiding officer should not enter into debate and cannot close debate.

13. Voting may be done by general consent (silence). Chair says, “If there is no objection, the report will

be accepted as information.”

14. The Chair votes only if his/her vote will change the result or break a tie. If his/her vote creates a tie,

the motion is lost.

MISSION OF SCNA

The mission of the South Carolina Nurses Association is to represent all South Carolina registered nurses in a

membership organization to promote and advocate the role of the registered nurse to improve health for

all. – 2017

MISSION OF ANA

Nurses advancing our profession to improve health for all. – 2016

PHILOSOPHY OF SCNA

1. SCNA believes that nursing is a professional discipline and an essential service in meeting the health care

needs of patients as individuals, groups, or communities. In support of this philosophy:

2. Nursing practice for registered nurses is defined in the nurse practice act of the State of South Carolina

as “the performance of acts that involve assessment, analysis, intervention and evaluation. This practice

requires specialized independent judgment and skill, and is based on knowledge and application of the

principles of biophysical and social sciences;”

3. Nurses practice independently or collaboratively in accordance with their education and clinical credentials;

4. Nurses are encouraged to seek baccalaureate and higher degrees, to engage in lifelong learning and be

employed according to role preparation;

5. Critical thinking is an essential competency for registered nurses;

6. Nurses are responsible to consumers for their practice and therefore must be responsive to individuals at all

levels of wellness and from all cultural backgrounds;

7. Nurses are responsible for the ethical practice of nursing according to the Code of Ethics for Nurses With

Interpretive Statements, 2015;

8. Nurses are engaged in activities to improve health care standards and health care accessibility for all people;

9. All nursing practice includes the art of caring. Professional nurses are providers, managers, coordinators,

educators, administrators, researchers of care in all settings;

10. “Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) means a registered nurse who is prepared for an advanced

practice registered nursing role by virtue of additional knowledge and skills gained through an advanced

formal education program of nursing in a specialty area that is approved by the Board of Nursing. The

categories of APRN are the nurse practitioner (NP), certified nurse-midwife (CNM), clinical nurse

specialist (CNS), and certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA). The NP, CNM, CNS, and CRNA hold

a nursing doctorate, a post-nursing master’s certificate or a minimum of a master’s degree that includes

advanced education composed of didactic and supervised clinical practice in a specific area of advanced

practice registered nursing” (SC Nurse Practice Act);

11. Nurses are responsible for their own professional development and competencies. Continuing education

and other professional activities enhance nursing practice and help to assure consumers of quality

nursing care outcomes. Nurses are encouraged to obtain and maintain competence. “Competence is a

dynamic concept, changing as the licensed nurse achieves a higher stage of development, responsibility,

and accountability within the role. The role encompasses the possession and interrelation of essential

knowledge, judgment, attitudes, values, skills and abilities which are varied and range in complexity” (SC

Nurse Practice Act);

12. Nurses assure competent care and advance the practice of nursing by promotion, dissemination and

utilization of research findings;

13. Nurses influence health policy through legislative and political action;

14. Workplace advocacy issues are a vital concern for nurses and nursing;

15. Marketing the professional practice of nursing and the Professional Association to the public, legislators,

and nurses is a priority.

SCNA President, Sheryl Mitchell

Number of BOD Meetings Attended: 3 of 3

2018 Activities: It has been a very exciting year. The Board of Directors has met three times since the

beginning of the year. We have discussed the future direction of SCNA, member engagement, and reviewed

SCNA’s strategic plan.

ANA’s quarterly open Board meetings were attended which provided me with the opportunity to remain current

with ANA’s priorities. The Health Policy/GOVA calls were also attended. This provided an opportunity to learn

of any policies that ANA is monitoring. It allowed an opportunity to discuss federal issues and learn about

what legislative issues are affecting other states. In addition to attending ANA’s quarterly open Board meetings,

I served as a Representative to ANA’s Membership Assembly. ANA Membership Assembly was held from

June 22-23, 2018. Furthermore, the Advisory Committee on Nursing Education, Deans and Directors, and the

Coalition for Access to Healthcare meetings were also attended.

Chair Commission on Professional Advocacy and Development, TK Curtis-Pugh

Number of BOD Meetings Attended: 3 of 3

2018 Activities: This year has truly been one of learning and transitioning. For the first part of the year, we

worked to increase the visibility of SCNA through various professional development fairs throughout the

Midlands. SCNA was able to increase membership, specifically with bedside nurses, and focus on ways to

increase their engagement within the organization. To that end, the SCNA convention planning committee

reached out to multiple speakers to prepare sessions that would focus on the nurse at every stage of his/her

career. The theme of “Bedside and Beyond” was adopted in hopes of connecting back to our roots, while

focusing on the future of nursing. I was able to advocate for nurses both here in South Carolina, as well as in

our nations’ capital, as a representative at the 2018 ANA Membership Assembly in Washington, D.C. Through

this experience, I was able see the inner workings of our organization, first-hand, and learn new and innovative

ways to connect with the nurses of our great state. In addition, I was a speaker at over 20 schools in Columbia,

Charleston, and Myrtle Beach, representing the profession of nursing, and highlighting our beloved SCNA. In

the coming year, I will be presenting at several conferences, including the 2018 AMSN conference, and the

2018 Magnet conference. I will continue to work with our leaders to grow in this role, and create increased

opportunities for all nurses to be seen and heard as members of SCNA. It is indeed my honor to serve each of

you in this capacity, and I look forward to doing much more in the years to come.

Continuing Education Approver Committee, Weatherly Brice

Number of Members: 8

Number of Meetings: 4

Average Attendance: varies

2018 Activities: Focus remains on providing and maintaining initial and ongoing competency for the

Continuing Education Approver Committee (CEAC) membership. Quarterly CEAC meetings now include an

update from the CEAC Chair with information dissemination from the ANCC Approver/Provider Unit monthly

virtual calls. The quarterly member updates provide an enhanced mechanism for members to remain current

with ANCC Criteria in addition to providing a forum to discuss Nursing Professional Development trending

topics. CEAC meets quarterly in conjunction with continuing education application review cycles. Virtual

meetings are held twice a year to increase accessibility for members with geographically diverse backgrounds.

We are excited to have 2 new members selected for the Committee and are actively in the process of orienting

the new members.

In November 2017, the CEAC Provider Unit Update was conducted via webinar to assist in reduction of travel

expenses for Provider Unit personnel and increase accessibility to content. Twenty-Six Participated in the

Webinar with plans to offer again in 2018.

Goals for CEAC include successful renewal of ANCC Approver status and achieving Competency validation for

the Nurse Peer Leader and Reviewer roles, also through ANCC.

Meetings of the Board of Trustees

The SCNF Board of Trustees meets on the second Friday of the second month of each quarter beginning in

February. 2018 meeting dates are February 9, May 4 (changed to 1st Friday due to USC graduation), August 10

and November 9.

Nurses Care License Plate Initiative:

Through legislation, SCNF was able to obtain a special license plate referred to as the South Carolina Nurses

Foundation NURSES CARE License Plate. These vehicle license plates are available through the South

Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles. Proceeds from the sale of the license plates as stated in the legislation

must support nursing scholarships. The number of scholarships and amount of each scholarship has increased

over time based on revenue generated, until this year. The number of applications at both the undergraduate and

graduate nursing education level has also increased based on revenues available.

88


2018 South Carolina Nurses Association

Scholarships and Awards Committee

This committee continues the work of reviewing the process, number, and amount to be awarded for each

scholarship in conjunction with the treasurer and finance committee. The License Plate Initiative (Nurses

Care Scholarship) application process is now conducted online. In 2018, $22,000 will be awarded which is a

decrease from 2018. SCNF has also been awarded 2 American Nurses Foundation Advocacy Scholarships of

$1000 each that the Foundation will be providing to SC Nurses this year.

Although contact is made with all registered nurse education programs in the State, scholarship applications are

not received from all schools. Efforts continue to assure that all eligible students have the opportunity to apply

for SCNF-managed scholarships.

Marketing and Development

SCNF participated for the third time in Midlands Gives. Midlands Gives is an event that promotes raising

money and awareness for Midlands nonprofits during a 24-hour online giving challenge. Much preparation and

planning is required of each participating non-profit which Renatta Loquist aptly spearheaded for SCNF. As a

result of our participation, the development of a much-needed social media presence was begun and additional

monies were added to the general fund. The May 1, 2018 Midlands Gives event was successful but did not

result in as much revenue generated as last year.

Palmetto Gold

The Palmetto Gold Steering Committee is a special committee of the Foundation and is responsible for

implementing the Palmetto Gold Nurse Recognition and Scholarship Program. As in previous years, 100 nurses

were selected to receive the prestigious Palmetto Gold Award and were recognized at the Palmetto Gold Gala

on April 21, 2018. The Palmetto Gold Scholarship Award Recipients were also recognized at the Gala event.

This event was the largest ever with over 700 guests and recipients in attendance. In its history, over 1700

hundred nurses have been recognized and over $392,000 awarded in nursing scholarships. The proceeds from

the 2018 Gala will again be used to award nursing scholarships in each of the registered nurse programs in our

state. The 2019 Gala is scheduled for April 29, 2019

Sheryl Mitchell

Report Year: 2018

ANA’s Membership Assembly was held in Washington, DC from June 22-23, 2018. ANA’s Hill Day was on

held on June 21, 2018. ANA’s Hill Day was attended by Teshieka Curtis-Pugh, Phyllis Watford, and Sheryl

Mitchell. While on Capitol Hill, several meetings were held with members of the United States Congress and

their legislative assistants. The goal of ANA Hill Day was to gain sponsorship on several bills including Title

VIII Nursing Workforce Reauthorization Act and HR 6. Also, Hill Day attendees discussed safe staffing.

Day 1 of Membership Assembly involved the opening session, report of the Nominations and Elections

committee, call for nominations, and President’s Address. The American Nurses Credentialing Center,

American Nurses Foundation, American Academy of Nursing, and ANA’s Treasurer gave reports. Secondary

opioid exposure, ANA’s presidential endorsement, and the right to die were discussed during the three

dialogue forums. ANA’s strategic and programmatic priorities were discussed. Also, ANA’s National Award

Recipients were recognized. During the evening, SCNA’s Membership Assembly Representatives attended the

Southeastern Executive Directors (SEED) Meeting.

Day 2 of Membership Assembly began with casting votes for ANA candidates. The Chief Executive Officer

gave a report. SCNA representatives participated in the Policy Café. Topics discussed during Policy Café

included nursing assistive personnel, the evolution of licensure, opioid epidemic, sexual harassment, promotion

and disease prevention, and transmission prevention of bloodborne pathogens. The results of the election were

CEO Annual Report

Judith Curfman Thompson, IOM

CEO and Lobbyist

2018 saw the continued use of the calendar that was adopted for SCNA in 2015. This calendar provides for the

election of officers in a way that allows for education of the incoming president during time as President-elect.

The Board of Directors continues to evaluate the roles for each member as we work to streamline the Board

of Directors and the work of SCNA. A new evaluation of the Director Seat 2 position is taking place and an

evaluation of the length of term for the President-elect is also under consideration. This role currently is a four

(4) year commitment for the person in the role. Several options have been explored and are under consideration

by the Board. As with all processes for an organization we continue to evaluate the process as we move forward

through the year.

My continuing education in the field of organizational management was changed due to the changes made at

the ANA level. The ANA Lobbyist meeting will held in September and my plan is to be in attendance. A new

meeting for Presidents and Executives was held in November and early December. While it was a good meeting,

it did not replace the Executive Enterprise meeting that used to take place for the education of those who serve

as the CEO of state organizations. The Leadership meeting will be held in late November to early December of

2018. SCNA also provided a continuing education opportunity for Rosie Robinson to increase her expertise with

the latest iteration of our computer operating system. Rosie is also working on a certification program which

continues to be supported by SCNA.

During all this time, Rosie Robinson, Assistant to the CEO, and I have continued to evaluate every part of the

operational infrastructure of SCNA. Our goal is to create the best possible infrastructure that we can given the

realities of time, money, and the current size of the staff. It is accurate to say that we provide a great deal of very

up to date services to our members and others far exceeding the size of the staff of SCNA

The “regular” work of SCNA has been continuing and has moved the organization forward in a number of ways.

So here we go:

The Career Center, part of our work with Your Membership, which is now called Community Brands, the

successor to Affiniscape, has produced royalty income for SCNA, as has the News Flash that is sent out as

well. The Career Center income has begun to show a small increase in revenue, following a series of meetings

91


2018 South Carolina Nurses Association

with the staff of the project to let them know how unhappy we have been in the drop in revenue. A new option,

which provides a really great royalty for SCNA, is for those seeking to place ads to do so directly with the

Career Center, rather than waiting to be contacted. Following a number of lackluster years of royalties from the

Mercer insurance program, SCNA determined that we would try a new avenue in this kind of product. We were

contacted by The NSO company and have subsequently made a change to the insurance program that we offer

for our members. NSO has been very helpful as we have made this change. I will attend a meeting in early

November to learn even more about the product and how we can make it successful. We have currently begun

to offer a loan program from OneMain Financial as well. The Great South Advisory Group is available to

members who are looking for assistance in retirement income planning at no cost for the service. A new credit

card program has also been established.

The distribution of the SCNURSE to all LPNs, RNs, including APRNS, members of the General Assembly and

Congressional Delegations as well as opportunities to share with all schools of nursing continues through the

good work of the Arthur L. Davis Agency. There is no cost to SCNA for this service.

SCNA also communicates with those who wish to receive it, a member “Flash” of current topics each week and

we have updated the use of Facebook as well.

The finances of SCNA continue to be monitored on a monthly basis. We continue to see a decline in programs

and workshops of our Chapters. This continues to be of concern to the Board of SCNA as the Chapters are

supposed to contribute to the income of the SCNA. Membership has continued to grow and this is a help in this

area.

Successful audit achieved and Form 990s have been filed as required by law with the IRS.

All reports to the State Ethics Commission for the lobbying activities of SCNA have been filed on time.

The SCNF continues to rent space from SCNA on the second floor of the building. The SCNF now has its own

phone line for communications and contributes to the cost of this line to SCNA.

Work has continued to contain expenses as much as possible for operations of SCNA.

The Continuing Education Approver Committee continues to be a wonderful group of dedicated volunteers

making this important program work for SCNA. This activity of SCNA continues to be a source of income.

All of the members of the CEAC are updated with new information from ANCC. SCNA’s Accreditation as an

Approver for Continuing Nursing Education with Distinction continues until 2019. The CEAC has already

started preparations for the application work that needs to take place so that we can be considered for continued

participation in this vital program. Weatherly Brice is excellent in the role as the Nurse Peer Review Leader.

The ability of both applicants, individual activity applicant and Approved Provider Units, to apply via a

computer program and for reviewers to review continues in place with the most up to date manual on line.

The SCNA CNE Provider Program (CEPC) was able to reach an agreement with the Tennessee Nurses

Association to exchange services for providing CNE in each of our states. SCNA submitted our application to

TNA and received approval of our program. This exchange of services is a money saver for both organizations

and continues a tradition that SCNA began with Vermont many years ago.

92


2018 South Carolina Nurses Association

We continue to offer as a service to members and our SCNA conference attendees, a way to ensure that all

CNE earned through SCNA, or added by members, will be stored and available for a minimum of 6 years. This

is a great member benefit!

SCNA’s Chapters that have submitted reports of activities can be found in this Book of Reports. The SCNA

Board of Directors continues to evaluate the Chapter structure to think about ways that might improve it or to

learn if it is still the way that members like to function and meet.

All activities of the Annual Meeting: Call for Resolutions, Call for Bylaws, Call for Nominations,

establishment of dates for on-line elections for officers of SCNA and Chapters have been accomplished in the

time-frames required by the Bylaws.

Preparations for the SCNA Election 2018 were accomplished on time. The official date for the creation of the

membership rolls for the election was July 1, 2018.

The Peer Assistance Program in Nursing continues to provide services to nurses. This is another outstanding

group of volunteers who willing gives of their time and talents to assist their peers. Susan Outen is the Chair.

She has submitted her resignation as the Chair and we are looking for someone to replace this vital role. The

PAPIN continues to undergo some intense examination and a thorough look at the services that it is able to

offer to the state and the nurses that it serves.

I attended many conference calls with ANA, including the public portion of the ANA Board of Directors

meetings, as well as the President and CEO telephone meetings and ANA Practice and legislative (GOVA)

calls. Attendance at the fifth ANA Membership Assembly (MA) took place in June. The meeting was well

attended and efficiently run. During this meeting time frame the SEED meeting also took place. It was a real

thrill to see a SEED member, Ernest Grant, elected as the incoming President of ANA, the first male president

in ANA’s long history.

The September meeting of the ANA Lobby group was held last September and will be held again this year.

This is always a great time to learn about important issues around the nation. It is a great time of sharing as

well as an opportunity to learn more about what assistance might be available to the states from a variety of

Federal agencies and departments as well as from ANA.

I have been active with other members of the Southeast group (SEED) on a number of issues at both the state

and national levels. We continue to look for opportunities to share among the states in order to facilitate the

work of the region.

The ANA has created a work group to review, study and plan for the action that will take place at the 2019

Membership Assembly in regard to the pilot project that has been exploring what is called a value priced dues

option. It has been a very successful project for many states. The questions being evaluated are numerous and I

have joined a group of other CEOs to review this pilot and try to look at what the future might bring in regard

to dues for ANA. All will need a great deal of study and then final work at the next Membership Assembly.

SCNA has been very busy with activities surrounding the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, as well as

with many other groups that are reported on in each quarter’s SC NURSE.

93


2018 South Carolina Nurses Association

The advocacy program of SCNA is alive and well! Legislation directly affecting the practice of nurses

continued this year. This was a marvelous year in that S345, the APRN bill, passed in the waning days of the

session. The passage represented untold hours of work and dedication by APRNs in SC to see this passage

take place. We were particularly grateful to Senator Tom Davis and Representative Gary Clary for their

steadfast support of moving the APRN legislation forward. We continued to work diligently with other groups

in coalition. SCNA was a prominent member of the coalition that is called SC Access for Health Care. Each

group that is part of the coalition is required to pay a fee of $5,000.00 for sitting as members of the Executive

Committee. The continuation of a large NP/CNM/CNS day at the State House was very well attended and

well received by members of the General Assembly. The continuation of an outreach program for support of

this work to many groups in SC who truly have a stake in ensuring that the coming influx of people to the

healthcare system can be handled properly in SC is ongoing. We shall continue working in 2019 to work to

make certain that efforts to implement the law are successful. Thanks to each and every member who worked

so hard to see this bill finally passed. A special thanks goes to Stephanie Burgess whose work was truly

remarkable on this important issue.

SCNA continues to support and have many members working with the State Implementation grant (formerly

One Voice One Plan) for the working through of all of the issues that were found in the Institute of Medicine

Report on the Future of Nursing in 2010. I am a member of the executive committee and serve on the

committee that is working toward the enhancement of the practice of nursing for all levels of nursing. SCNA

is also represented in the SC Diabetes Council and as the Institute for Medicine and Public Health work on the

future of healthcare.

SCNA is represented at each meeting of the SC Board of Nursing and the SC Board of Medical Examiners as

well as at other statewide meetings that affect the healthcare field. These are all important venues and allow

SCNA to keep current on what is taking place in our state.

Once again, SCNA has been stable in terms of the two person staff that you have. Rosie Robinson and I have

worked very hard to accomplish all of the work that needs to be done on a daily basis for SCNA as well as on

the big projects of the organization. Rosie’s skills and abilities continue to be tested especially in reference to

all of the work that is necessary to changing systems within SCNA and all our components... She is a true asset

to SCNA in many ways!

I continue to know that I have the very best job with learning curves that are sometimes vertical, action days

that never seem to end and a wonderful Board with which to work as well as great members who are devoted to

the promotion of their very most special profession. Thanks to all and ONWARD!
