Nursing is one of the few professions that affords one the opportunity to impact lives on such a profound level, not only physically but emotionally and spiritually as well. Yet the same qualities that make nursing so deeply rewarding can also make it a challenge, over time, to sustain your energy and passion. Whether on the frontlines of direct patient care or in any part of the Nursing spectrum we all need to feel attached to the “why” of our work.
The Inspired Nurse presentation helps us maintain and recapture those elusive qualities. Those of us that call Nursing our life’s work must also take care of “self” in order to be able to do the challenging physical, emotional and intellectual work that it takes to serve others. In this thought-provoking and inspirational presentation, Rich Bluni, RN, author of Inspired Nurse and Inspired Nurse Too reminds all Nurses, through the use of stories and humor, why we chose this profession. He provides a wealth of action-oriented “spiritual stretches” that help us more fully integrate the gifts of healthcare—joy, wonder, gratitude, and insight —into our daily lives. His personal stories illuminate those sacred moments we all experience. Inspired Nurse is a welcome validation that when we stay engaged and committed, we’re more likely to provide extraordinary patient care, make a difference for those who we serve and work with…in terms of both clinical outcomes and human compassion.
APHON thanks ONCC for their generous support of this event.
