Miss Colorado Turning a Negative Into a Positive for Nurses

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, September 24th, 2015

As disappointed as I was that the hosts of The View made such ignorant disparaging remarks about nurses, I’m delighted with the educational opportunities it has provided. Finally nursing, and the truth about what we do, is getting the positive attention our fabulous career deserves!

I especially love how nurses are rallying together and speaking up together. As you know, one of my missions in life nurses rockis for us to build each other up, help each other out, regardless of tenure or age or number of initials behind our names. Now is the time for us to write letters to the editor of our newspapers and post positive comments and ideas online.

I read literally thousands of stories from nurses to write the latest third edition of Chicken Soup for the Soul, Inspiration for Nurses. I KNOW the compassionate, excellent care nurses deliver day in and day out. Now the world will know too!

We are indeed facing a nursing shortage of crisis proportion in this country. Help me use this opportunity to promote our benevolent profession of caring.
