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.
