Nurse Blogger Kateri Allard’s open letter to Joy Behar of the talk show, The View went viral. Kateri sat down with me to talk about why it’s so important to have an open conversation about what nurses do. Kateri was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease as a very young teen and she also talks about the ways in which she’s beating it.
Will you help me turn recent catty comments about Miss America 2nd Runner up, Kelley Johnson, RN into an uplifting conversation about what nurses do and how they make a positive difference in the world? What has a nurse done for you? Did her meticulous wound care save function for you? Did she teach you about a condition which made it more manageable for you? Did her quick observation and action save your life or your loved one’s life? I only recently hung up my stethoscope. I’m so happy I had the amazing experience. It changed me. If nursing has changed you as a nurse or patient or family, please share your story. You can leave a comment here, click on the sidebar to leave a voice message or send an email. Thank you to all of my fellow nurses still practicing and making a difference for the whole patient and their family.
