WHAT WE'RE BLOGGING ABOUT

  • In her post “When Brokenness Transforms Nursing,” pediatric intensive care nurse Hui-Wen (Alina) Sato examines how the universal experience of struggle can be used as a “common ground” to benefit both nurses and their patients (https://wp.me/p7sy0l-6yk).
  • “I wonder how many fine nurses are lost to our profession because they cannot afford the ever-increasing cost of college?” writes oncology nurse navigator Julianna Paradisi in her post “How I Spent My Summer: Funding the Cost of a Nurse's Education” (https://wp.me/p7sy0l-6z5).
  • In “Designing Nurses: Make Your Ideas Reality,” AJN editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy discusses the role of nurses in creating processes, products, and solutions that can help provide better care (https://wp.me/p7sy0l-6yO).

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ON TWITTER, FACEBOOK, AND OUR BLOG

“[As a] home care nurse, I love the personal attention I can give each of my patients. I can really be an advocate for [them].” “The wonderful thing about nursing is that compared to other career paths, we have a good starting salary and decent job security if we stick with it.” “I worked [during] a disaster in the past as a volunteer for the Red Cross; it really gets you out of yourself and your petty worries.”
