Mother’s Day and National Nurses Week are two celebrations that for me fall perfectly into place. I have always been grateful to have a mother who raised me to have strong values, high morals, and integrity. However, until now I never considered how many of these traits came directly from her role as a Registered Nurse. Throughout her career she demonstrated her belief system through her actions, how she cared for her patients and the experiences she shared.
Her five most important teachings were ….
1. Bravery can be a simple act
2. Lessons are more memorable with living examples
3. Find reasons to celebrate
4. Always ask for a second opinion
During National Nurses Week, I encourage retired, current, and soon to graduate nurses to share with us their training and understanding of human nature. Help teach us a few of life’s lessons including how to be brave, the power of experience, taking time to celebrate, be willing to ask for help, and most of all share in the belief that we are all connected.
We want to hear from you.
