The Voice of Nursing
My nursing vision is to make love visible through inspiring curiosity and wholeheartedness into my patients, colleagues, all nurses and all of healthcare. Through building systems of creativity, wholeness, engineering and engagement, the society of healthcare professionals is strengthened. By embracing our humanity, telling stories and honing in on other "soft" skills, we can effectively dive into the art and science of caring.
Nurses dedicate their careers and lives to enriching and transforming the lives of their patients. Isn't it time we do the same for nurses? If we provide nurses with a platform to cultivate and tell their stories, they become the ones who are empowered and engaged. They are able to enrich and transform culture building on a local scale while shaping a new future of healthcare that we can all be proud of.
When we make qualitative efforts in ourselves as leaders to find and use our voices, we will create quantitative results in ourselves, patients and healthcare as a whole.
It's easy to talk about transforming healthcare, but what are we going to do about it? How do we give nurses the opportunity to find and use their Nursing Voice? How can we combine the inner resources each nurse brings to the table to add value to each department and profession while building social capital?
Let's create a new culture around nursing; a culture in which the nurse is empowered and has a platform to express ideas and concerns. This platform can be a forum, virtual community, or something in between where we can work together to engineer the future of healthcare.
Through workshops, campaigns, story circles, resource enrichment, salons and more, we will transform healthcare one nurse at a time.
