MY FUTURE CAREER AND
PHYSICAL FITNESS
Scholarly Article
◦ The article titled “Physical fitness in pre-registration nurses” by Julie Orr, Sue McGrouther, and Marie
McCaig focuses on the paradox wherein nurses are tasked promote good health by providing intervention to
patients, but are unable to engage in healthy lifestyles which violates the Nurse and Midwifery (NMC) code.
â—¦ In fact, it was mentioned that around 37.2% of nurses were overweight and around 28.2% were obese. Apart
from that, there were frequent behaviors of smoking addiction found among nurses and they were also
found to be significantly lacking in adequate exercise. Since the NMC monitors nurses through selfassessment, it is difficult with that current model to ensure that nurses are actually staying in shape.
â—¦ The article emphasizes that it is crucial for nurses to be healthy because this is necessary in their field and
that they should also do the actions that they promote. Apart from that, it was mentioned that nurses who
smoked mostly failed to prevent patients from stopping their addictions. It is important that nurses stay in
good health so that they can empower their patients to do the same and so that they may seen as role models
to emulate.

Physical fitness in pre-registration nursing students
a b s t r a c t
Keywords:
Physical fitness
Student nurses
Professionalism
Background: Nurses are ideally placed to deliver health promotion interventions, including physical
fitness, however evidence suggests that nurses themselves are failing to engage in healthy lifestyles; this
in turn making them less likely to promote health. It would appear that some nurses are allowing their
own values, beliefs and behaviours to hinder this role. We propose these nurses are in breach of the
Nursing and Midwifery (NMC) code.
Currently nurses self declare their fitness to practice through the NMC, however self-monitoring has
been criticized for its lack of reliability. Recruitment of student nurses in the UK does not currently assess
physical fitness levels in line with other professionals such as the armed forces, police or fire service.
Over half the nursing workforce is now overweight or obese, with alarming levels of inactivity.
Physical activity positively correlates with motivation, wellbeing, coping and positive attitude. These
attributes in turn impact on employability, retention and absence. This article explores promoting health,
focussing on physical activity and discusses innovative ideas to promote physical activity within the
nursing Curricula.

Introduction
The aim of this paper is to discuss nurse lifestyle behaviour,
particularly physical activity, and its impact on health promotion.
We hope ultimately to influence nurse lifestyle behaviour. It is
widely acknowledged that nurses are ideally situated to promote
health behaviours: however it is also recognised that many nurses
fail to carry out this role despite having the knowledge to do so
(Porter, 2011). It would appear that some nurses are allowing their
own beliefs, values and behaviour to hinder their role in health promotion (Healy and McSharry, 2010). It is proposed that these nurses
are in breach of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (2008) Code.
The NMC (2010) currently require nurses to self-monitor in order to assess good character and good health. In our opinion this requires re-examination since self-reporting tools are considered to
be flawed (Warner et al., 2012). Within the nursing profession,
physical fitness is not assessed; this is not comparable to other public services professions.
This editorial describes a research project which will be carried
out to explore student nurse values, beliefs and behaviour in relation to lifestyle and which will implement the use of physical exercise champions (PECs) to increase physical activity in student
nurses.
Nurse values, beliefs and behaviours
Health promotion, disease prevention and the care of patients
who are ill are fundamental aspects of the nurse’s role (Radsma
1471-5953/$ e see front matter Ó 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.nepr.2013.10.002
and Bottorff, 2009). Nurses own health behaviour is paradoxical:
the fact remains that many nurses engage in unhealthy lifestyle activities (Smith and Leggat, 2007; Zapka et al., 2009). Interestingly,
although Zapka et al.’s (2009) study revealed that 37.2% of nurses
in their study were overweight and 28.2% obese, a significant percentage did not perceive themselves to be so, suggesting that
some nurses do not have knowledge of these parameters. Miller
et al. (2008) found that 54% of their nurse participants were overweight or obese. Ninety-three percent recognised their own weight
required action; however 76% admitted to not tackling the issue of
overweight and obesity with patients.
Similarly Radsma and Bottorff (2009), and Peate (2012) found
that nurses who smoke regularly fail to promote smoking cessation
with patients because they consider they are poor role models.
Ironically, Radsma and Bottorff (2009) found that nurses who
smoke wish to be seen as healthy individuals in the workplace
and used breathe fresheners, washed their hands frequently and
hid the fact they were smokers in order to hide the habit from other
health professionals.
Esposito and Fitzpatrick (2011) found nurses who were active
themselves were more likely to engage in, and follow up, health
promotion activities with patients. However in a study of over
850 nurses, Malik et al. (2011) report that almost half sampled
did not participate in the recommended 30 min of moderate intensity exercise over a period of five days per week (World Health
Organisation (WHO), 2011). Despite nurses being aware of the benefits of health lifestyles, McElligott et al. (2009) concur that many
nurse fail to engage in exercise themselves.

Fitness to practice
At the point of, and when renewing registration, nurses are
required to self-declare their “good health and good character”
(NMC, 2010). Good health refers to having the capacity to undertake ‘safe and effective’ practice without the requirement of supervision while good character refers to conduct, ‘behaviour and
attitude’ (NMC, 2010, p. 8). While the process for assessing criminality through protection of vulnerable groups screening and
fitness to practice within the workplace appears to be robust, the
annual declaration through self-monitoring lacks validity. In our
opinion there are gaps in the process for assessing good health
and good character since both are verified through self- monitoring. Self-monitoring tools have been criticised for lacking reliability (Storey and McCargar, 2012).
The NMC (2008) requires nurses to promote and protect the
health of those patients in their care. If nurses fail to carry out
health promotion because of their own health values, beliefs or lifestyle behaviour, and thus place patients at risk, they should be
referred to fitness to practice and their competence assessed. In
our opinion the NMC and employers need to develop more robust
processes. The general practice (GP) appraisal system does not
determine validation or re-licensing but assesses and supports
GPs in determining whether their continuing professional development meets requirements (Sparrow, 2008). The NMC could adopt
this system, adding greater validity to the monitoring process and
improving the care professionals provide to their patients
(Sparrow, 2008).
The current recruitment process for nursing students includes a
physical screening; however it does not include the assessment of
physical fitness. Other public service professions demonstrate a
more structured approach. Police applicants are expected to be
“physically fit and healthy” with new recruits expected to pass
endurance and muscle strength tests. The Armed Forces and Fire
Fighters also have minimum requirements to ensure staff is fit,
safe and competent (Kuruganti and Rickards, 2004). Seventy five
per cent of police officers were noted to be overweight or obese
thus the Metropolitan (Greater London) Police Federation (2011)
suggested an annual fitness test for police officers, with pay cuts
for those who failed a timed 15 m “shuttle run” more than three
times. Dempsey and Handcock (2011) reviewed the New Zealand
Police Physical Competency test and exposed those with cardiovascular risk factors as being unfit for purpose.
In 2009, it was estimated that 58% of NHS staff in the United
Kingdom (UK) were overweight or obese with 40% partaking in
physical activity on two days per week or less (Department of
Health, 2009). Outside the UK, some health care providers are taking a formal stance. One hospital in Texas has stated it will not hire
overweight staff, whilst in New Zealand, a British nurse has been
denied emigration because the country’s Government consider
her 21 stone weight could cost them thousands in future in health
costs (Ford, 2009).
Opportunities for educators
Research studies show that nurses who engage with a healthy
lifestyle are more likely to promote health to others (Puig Ribera
et al., 2005; Esposito and Fitzpatrick (2011), therefore it seems
obvious to ensure nursing students and ultimately nurses improve
their own lifestyles and health. We argue it is time to take a more
pragmatic approach to nurse education in relation to health promotion. Our research study aims to explore student nurse values, beliefs and behaviour and increase physical activity. Baseline data
will be gathered in relation to physical activity and lifestyle behaviour from new volunteer nursing recruits. From this cohort,
volunteers will be asked to become student ambassadors in the
form of physical exercise champions (PECs), whose role will be to
empower and inspire peers. Action research will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the PECs, initially for a year. Stakeholders
include research staff, student volunteers, service users, local NHS
and public health bodies and National partners. Youth Sport
Scotland (2013) states that physical activity has the ability to
enhance personal development in terms of improved confidence
and self-esteem. It also has the potential to facilitate the development of partnership working and communication links, leadership,
presentation and employability skills (Youth Sport Scotland, 2013).
Conclusion
Nurses are ideally placed to promote health; however it is clear
that some nurses are allowing their own beliefs, values and lifestyles to hinder their role in health promotion (Healy and
McSharry, 2010). We argue that these nurses are in breach of the
NMC (2008) Code and should be referred to fitness to practice. Current methods for assessing good health and good character are
inadequate and require updating to include more robust processes
such that these nurses can be identified and supported. Physical
fitness is not assessed on entry to the nursing profession; other
comparable professions leave nursing behind in this aspect. In
requiring student nurses to explore their own values, beliefs and
lifestyles, we hope ultimately to change attitudes and behaviours.

Mental Health in the Business Marketing Environment
Amercian Marketing Association (AMA.org)
This professional website cites an article in the Journal of
Marketing that found that the compensation plan that
salespeople operate under is the reason for much of the
stress in this profession. The variable component allows for
salespeople to earn more or less based on performance, but it
also causes a lot of uncertainty. A study showed that when
compensation was changed to be 80% fixed to only 20%
variable, the salesperson’s performance decreased, but the
number of days they were sick also decreased, by about 30%.
Thus, a higher fixed salary meant they worked less hard, but
gained better health.
