Be the Change You Want to See in the Nursing Profession
OUR THEME FOR NURSES WEEK 2014 IS “BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.” IN KEEPING WITH THE THEME’S SPIRIT, WE ASKED TWO OF OUR INNER CIRCLE MEMBERS ABOUT ARE THE CHANGES THEY WISH TO SEE IN THE NURSING PROFESSIONAL HOW THEY’VE WORKED TOWARDS IT. HERE ARE THEIR REPLIES:
Nursing from Within is a nursing model that presents an opportunity for change. When a nurse follows the Nursing from Within process, they apply methods to shift their inner perspectives in order to fully enjoy the external environment more. It invites the individual nurse to empower themselves from the inside out which leads to the creation of confident nurse leaders.
The nursing profession changes as a whole when we each take ownership as professionals and tap into our nurse within.
A great mentor told me “girls compete against each other but women support each other.” This statement made a profound difference in the way I look at relationships as a woman. Unfortunately, in my 39 years of work experience, I have not always found this to be reality in the nursing profession.
The change I would like to see in nursing is that our profession is well-recognized and appreciated for all we can provide to those we serve. We will not be perceived as professionals if we do not behave as professionals.
