Happy National Nurses Day! I want each of you to do something special just for YOU today! Nursing is a field where we have to make and find our own rewards in what we do everyday and how we make a difference for someone every day. We don’t always get thank you’s, and don’t often get to see a situation resolved fully. We’re always helping people move to the next step and handing them off. So do something to honor yourself today! (And every day!)
In 1893, Mrs. Lystra E. Gretter and the Farrand Training School for Nurses wrote an adaptation of the physician’s Hippocratic Oath for nurses. Nurses Day celebrations often include a reading or hand out of the Florence Nightingale Pledge. Read it carefully and listen to the words. It is also often know as the Nurse’s Oath and is frequently recited at graduation pinning ceremonies.
One way to honor yourself and celebrate nursing is to register and attend The Art of Nursing from May 7-10 –online. You can earn ceus by completing the tasks and you have until August 2018. There will be 12 30-minute videos included from some of your favorite nurse resources lead by Elizabeth Scala. Topics include Global Vision and Leadership, Teamwork and Collaboration, Clinical Innovation and Resilience and Self Care. The purpose is to reduce burnout and increase professional development. Access the videos on your own time frame. There will be 4 30-minute wrap-up video calls at the end of each day which you can participate in. Don’t miss this one! Register now!
