Just a Nurse Contest
I have always wanted to run a Just a Nurse contest. People can see what I have written on my posters and bookmarks on Just a Nurse. But what about you — working nurses. So here I go, I am inviting anyone who reads this and anyone who cares to make this go viral to write a couple of lines a la my Just a Nurse riff to amplify it.
I’m just a nurse, I just teach physicians about medications
I’m just a nurse, I just advise medical equipment companies about how to make better devices
I’m just a nurse, I make sure patients don’t get the wrong dose of medications
You see what I’m after. Please give it a go and send it on to ask others to do it. For my contest, I will judge the best offerings and then send whomever wins — there will be three winners — a copy of my Just a Nurse poster as a gift. Please make this go viral and then we can post things on this website.
