When You See Something, Say Something

When You See Something, Say Something

This is the story of a Registered Nurse (me) who stood up for herself and her patients, and what happened in the process. Nurses are one of the most dedicated professionals on the earth. Nurses vow to protect their patients from harm. Here is Nightingale’s Pledge from 1935, and it (or an updated version) continues to be said at nurse graduation ceremonies around the world.

I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practise my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping, and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavour to aid the physician in his work, and as a 'missioner of health' I will dedicate myself to devoted service to human welfare.

The Business of Nurse Coaching

The Business of Nurse Coaching

Registered Nurses are highly skilled, educated, professional, trustworthy and adaptable. They can work in ANY environment effectively and efficiently- not just traditional roles like a hospital.

Nurse Coaches are Essential to Healing Healthcare

Nurse Coaches are Essential to Healing Healthcare

Nurse Coaches do not treat diseases or body parts, instead they honor people as unique, individual beings, comprised of wisdom and strengths.  They engage patients and their families in all health-related decisions.  Nurse Coaches see the possibility for healing and connect with patients on a deep level, and why they are essential in the healthcare space.

Let Go

Let Go

Keeping secrets & living with fear & shame allows us to build upon the ugliness of our own internal stories, making them difficult to overcome.  When you Let Go, you begin to open yourself up to the possibility of healing, allowing yourself to learn from mistakes, & then, in time, you will  begin to flourish, as you honor your past.
