Hello, It seems apt as Nurses’ Week is coming to an end to share this interview with you. I did the interview with Rob Fraser, a wonderful new nurse whose got a great website called Nursingideas.ca. Rob does interviews with all kinds of people and he did one with me after I did a workshop on how nurses should tell their stories in Toronto last year at the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario — another great group people all over the world should know about. Nurses’ Week is always a flutter of hearts and angels and other symbols that I think trivialize and sentimentalize nurses’ extraordinarily complex work. Just consider the International Council of Nurses’ choice of a symbol for Nurses’ Week this year — a light bulb with instead of a normal filament inside, a lit up heart. Need one say more. So I hope you enjoy this interview and let me know what you think of it.
Thanks and happy Nurses’ Week and thank you all for the educated brains that guide your educated hearts.
