2017-2018 AACN Guided by Why image

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.”
