National Magnet Nurse of the Year 2018


As far as experiences go, I know I’ve married the love of my life, had beautiful children, and, you know… faced (and so far, beat) cancer and stuff. But this. This was the most incredible, dream-like experience- and one that will likely go unmatched for a while. Winning National Magnet Nurse of the Year in the Structural Empowerment category has shown me that making your mess your message can have absolutely beautiful outcomes. I was so humbled and honored to accept this award in front of 11k of my new friends and am happy to share my speech here with you.

    I felt very sad of what I read then I must admit !
    And I have followed you since then!

    I was just diagnosed with MDS, a blood cancer desease, and just surfed around looking for some blogs about ca….

    You gave me courage and I started to empower my self with knowledge and hope !
