My love story with nurses started decades ago and I’ve been inspiring nurses with my mantra “We Are Nurses and We Can Do Anything!®” ever since. It’s true, registered nurses can do anything – after all we save lives by making split second decisions that often mean the difference between life and death.
Nurses treat all patients without regard to skin color, economic status or political viewpoints. We see only a fellow human in need. All patients are created equal in the eyes of a nurse. Yes – even those who believe in stupid notions like #nursesplayingcards will be treated with humanity by a nurse.
During these tumultuous times, with polarizing divides on every subject being stronger and more prevalent than ever, I propose we celebrate not just what nurses do, but who we are. Just imagine – if people approached each other with the spirit and openness of a nurse, what a more successful planet this would be.
Happy Nurses Week. I love nurses!
Success Is Yours,
