“Nurses go into the profession because of their passion to work directly with or in support of patients/clients and their families/significant others. They are the lynchpins of healthcare teams.”

–Myra Ehrman, PMP, CPHIMS, MScN, RN

“Nursing roles have changed greatly through the years, Nurses today are patient advocates and work to improve people’s health, the healthcare process, and the technology that supports quality care.”

–Lisa Laravie, RN, PMP

“Nurses are the strongest advocates for the patient and not everyone can do this job.  We’re the most trusted profession for a reason.  We need to tell our stories to educate the public on what we do.”

“We nurses work to empower and support each other just as we do our patients; we learn from and support each other to ensure that we all can be effective advocates for those in our care.”

“Nursing is not just a profession, it’s a mentality.”

–Ashley Franks, RN

“Nursing is more than a profession, it’s a calling and a passion to care, advocate, educate and heal.”

“Nurses are masters of time and resource management. Using critical thinking to do the most possible good and providing the best possible outcomes for their patients and families.”

–James Campbell, RN

“Many of us chose nursing as a profession because we knew we’d be with patients—and most importantly be able to help them—during some of the very worst moments of their lives.

We are driven by the hope that we can always do something to help, no matter what.”

–Katie Cornwell, MSN, NNP-BC, CNS
