Guided by Why AACN 2017-2018 Theme

August 1st, 2017|0 Comments

AACN President Christine Schulman said "It’s obvious to me that we nurses faithfully use why as our guide". Why is our "tool to accomplish our goals: as a compass, as an anchor, as a voice about things that matter?” She invites others to join her in reconnecting with our WHY. “When we do this,” she says, “we reaffirm our core purpose and have a guiding beacon for what we can — what we must — do to ensure that every patient gets the excellent care they deserve. And that every nurse has the tools and the skills they need to [...]

Special president’s message: Nurses have never mattered more

July 26th, 2016|0 Comments

Dear colleague, These past weeks we have seen one act of violence and tragedy after another, and I find myself searching for something to soothe the weariness. As an AACN chapter advisor just shared with me, we need a hug. I wonder if you are experiencing similar feelings or thinking that it is hard for the human spirit to cope with this string of violence against our shared humanity and to embrace what really matters. Sadly, increased violent behavior in the workplace has been something that you — members of our nursing community — have reported as one of the key barriers to [...]

It Matters: AACN’s 2016-2017 Theme

July 25th, 2016|0 Comments

One of AACN President Clareen Wiencek’s favorite quotes is attributed to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” She says the quote is at the root of AACN’s theme for 2016-2017, It Matters. “We know it matters that we care courageously for the sickest and most vulnerable patients and do it in chaotic and ever-changing health systems,” Wiencek says. “It matters that we are members or leaders of interdisciplinary teams who are always at the bedside watching, preventing errors and averting disasters.” Wiencek believes it matters that nurses [...]
