Our stories are incredibly powerful. Stories are part of who we are as nurses—it’s how we gather evidence, unravel medical mysteries, distract people from unpleasant procedures, how we build trust and rapport, and humanize individual and collective experiences. Research indicates that whether the story is a happy one or a hard one—just knowing the stories of pivotal life experiences helps marshal psychological strengths.
In this episode, recorded in front of a live audience in Chicago at the 2023 American Nurses Credentialing Center National Magnet Conference® and Pathway to Excellence Conference®, nurses shared—in stories and verse—identifying gaps in care, the problems needing attention and solutions, and the partnerships that make us better.
