One way I like to reflect during Nurses Week is to pick up either Notes on Nursing by Florence Nightingale or The Florence Prescription: From Accountability to Ownership by Joe Tye and Dick Schwab. Reading stories about Florence Nightingale keeps me grounded and reminds me of two very important things. As nurse leaders our work is never done; and secondly, we need to take time to celebrate ourselves. So as you begin to read this month’s issue, please take a moment and celebrate yourself and the leadership path you have chosen. You are the most courageous, passionate and dedicated nurses, whom I am so very proud to call my colleagues.
