Advocate for Nursing
As a nurse advocate, you’ll speak up on behalf of nurses. It’s an empowering and inspiring role that can help promote change for your colleagues, patients, and the healthcare industry as a whole.
Meeting up with your colleagues regularly can help you influence the rules, policies, and processes in your workplace and beyond. It’s one of the best ways to improve your environment and make sure you’re able to provide the best care.
Be an inspiration
Let people know how great it is to be a nurse today. Share your experiences, offer advice, and encourage people to consider nursing as a first or second career. Consider working with your local school system to talk to students in elementary, middle, and high school about a career in nursing. Early connections are important, as students considering a career in nursing should be concentrating on math and science courses in high school, to prepare them for nursing school.
