There are so many amazing nurses that work tirelessly and rarely get the glory they so deserve. When I was pregnant with my miracle baby, all my prenatal visits were handled by an LPN who was absolutely wonderful. She had the best bedside manner, she was awesome at making me feel at ease (and not an archaic relic considering I was ‘older’ when I was pregnant and considered high risk).
She was absolutely wonderful making sure I had an easy pregnancy. Even when I had a few scares along the way, she was able to calm all my fears (unlike the actual OBGYN who took over the reins on delivery day – polar opposite. But we’re not talking about him.)
Nurses all over should be celebrated – and thanks to Johnson & Johnson, you have a chance to have your favorite nurse celebrated.
Announcing the Johnson & Johnson 220;Amazing Nurses Contest.”
If you have an amazing nurse that deserves the praise, and would like to give them a chance to attend the 2012 CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute Show in Los Angeles, consider entering them in the Amazing Nurses Contest (last day to nominate is 6/29).
Did you know… The healthcare field is experiencing a severe shortage of nurses; there is currently a nationwide vacancy of over 100,000 positions, and that number is expected to grow to 800,000 by the year 2020?
Good News… A 20011 Gallup Poll announced that the public voted nurses number one for “honesty and ethical standards of various professions” for the 8th consecutive year. The Winning Nurse will also be featured on the Nursing Community, Nursing Notes – by Johnson & Johnson, on Facebook.
When I was growing up, I always wanted to be a nurse, but as I got older, I realized I didn’t have the stomach to do the job. I didn’t think patients would appreciate me being green around the gills tending to their needs, or losing my lunch seeing a serious wound.
Those in the nursing profession have my greatest respect for all they do.
