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 provide that care.”
