Title:
Nightingale's Bright Light
Abstract:
Nightingale's Bright Light
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Wardell, Tamara Lynn, RN, MSN
P.I. Institution Name:N/A
My poem reveals some of my experiences as both practitioner and patient. Poetry speaks from the heart. It explodes from one’s being and allows another insight into your very psyche. It is a most personal form of communication. It reaches others on a variety of levels. Poetry is not so much literal, but ethereal. It opens up one’s soul to those who share in its reading. This poem is significant to all areas of nursing practice, education, and administration. It provides a hallmark upon what we as nurses need to focus. We have lost our way and blamed it on all manner of things, instead of hunkering down and just doing it. Competent, compassionate nursing care can be accomplished. Patients deserve care and nurses must be committed to working hard during each shift they are assigned. Try to remember you or your family may be the next recipient of your lack of caring behaviors. Diversity is transcended when we strive to live out Nightingale’s vision for us. No patient should go uncared for or lost in the shuffle of insurance and institution guidelines. Nurses must return to a primary role of patient advocate and caregiver. Hands on care and concern are necessary. In order, for us to transcend current conditions we must unite as one voice. We need to accentuate our commitment to those whom we serve. Each professional nurse must be educated in a baccalaureate program. With these steps we can emerge as a powerful force and change agent.
