Kids Color the World of Nurses

crayons1Kids have so many career options these days.

When I was  kid (now I sound like my mom!) girls mostly became teachers, nurses or secretaries. Now they can be doctors, big game hunters or astronauts!

How can we teach them about the joys of nursing? How can we lure them into our profession?

At the Indiana Organization of Nurse Executives conference this spring, I saw a great coloring book they created for kids to learn about healthcare careers. What a terrific way to encourage kids to learn about healthcare careers! To learn more and see how you can adopt this idea, see For more recruitment ideas, contact me
