Be Yourself, Nurses; Everyone Else is Taken

Owning and stepping into your own genius as a nurse is important; and genius is, of course, relative for all nurses. At times, we can lose heart and feel that we just can't become the person or professional we thought we could be; however, seeking our own individual path is paramount when it comes to creating a career that feels tailor-made just for us, and not just a path someone else said was the best one to follow.

Whether you feel like an impostor or your career has grown stale, there's nothing you can be other than yourself; and if you're trying terribly hard to be just like someone else (or do what others tell you is right), you may end up missing the mark altogether.

Cogitating the Possibilities by the Sound of My Own Keystrokes.

Head Nurse

Every once in a while I get those days that make me wonder if Mercury is in retrograde, the Moon is in Klutz, and the Universe just generally has it in for me. They're the sort of days that make old nurses cynical. The sort of days that make young nurses stare hollowly at the wall in the bar.

Nursing From Within

The National Nurse for Public Health

Elevate the Chief Nurse Officer of the US Public Health Service to full time status within the Office of the Surgeon General to become the National Nurse to enhance prevention efforts in all communities.

The Underside of Nursing

By now, I think all of us have heard enough about nursing practice, nursing standards, nursing credibility, nursing credentials, professionalism, evidenced based practice, blah-blah, etc, etc., ad nauseum. There are plenty of writers and journals for all of that stuff, and I encourage them to keep at it, but I must say, it's often quite tedious and boring. I would rather make funny, with a rhyme, and tell the world what's really going on at the bedside.
