Nursing isn't a profession you fall into. It’s a profession that chooses you!
2020 is the Year of the Nurse and Midwife. For those of us who provide direct patient care, what does this mean? It means that the world is seeing us. Many have experienced our knowledge, skills, and compassion through personal illness and injury. Many know the impact that we have. This year is the time for all to learn our stories and to know that our focus on patient care and outcomes comes from within. We are critical thinkers, collaborative caregivers, and astute educators. We make a difference each and every day and as the largest group of healthcare providers, nurses impact patients, communities, and health for all. Be proud of the work you do and this year, lift your head even higher to show the world your strength.
