A Nurse’s Manifesto:
1. Trust is earned, but respect is given to every patient and coworker.
2. The “Q” word brings trouble, within the walls of any health care institution, in any close proximity of a hospital, or nursing school clinical.
3. Do Know, and Do No Harm - but never take any crap.
4. Perspective is what keeps you grounded - the ability to reflect, recognize absurdity, and laugh at least once a day (even if it’s at yourself).
5. Compassion is universal and does not discriminate.
