A Call to Cease Hostilities, by Paddy Rodney, RN

I love nursing. I loved it from the minute my feet ‘hit the ground’ as a nursing student 42 years ago and through all my clinical practice, teaching and research ever since. As I am sure is the case for most nurses reading this blog, my experiences caring for individuals, families and communities have taught me fundamental truths about what it means to be human, and I have treasured the… Read More »A Call to Cease Hostilities, by Paddy Rodney, RN
