I am going to write that book. It will be a long work in progress, may never actually get published by anyone other than myself, but what the heck, dad always said can't never did nothing.
What I am looking for is stories from nurses on the front lines, as well as stories from nurses who have been in management that have stuggled with the demands of good nursing care and budget restrictions.
I know there are many of us who have experienced the physician who has been abusive, the admin who have also been abusive etc... I am looking for those that are willing to share those stories and stay in contact with me for clarification.
I want to hear from nursing who have been retailiated against for speaking out. I have experienced this myself and intend on telling my own story as well.
Please know in advance I will not be using the real name of anyone who is willing to share anything with me. Your identity will always be protected. For myself I will need real names, the real name of the facility problems occured in, and the real name of those involved. I believe I will be the only one that will take any risk here by publishing the information. I can't stress enough, that your identity however, will be protected.
I am an upfront person. My name is Helen Cook, I live in Nashville MI. Almost big enough to know it is there
I have been in nursing 11 years.
This is request is not limited to American Nurses, I am hoping to hear from Nurses in other countries as well. As most of us are aware the issues I wish to talk about are not an American problem, they are worldwide.
It is not necessary to pm me. Please send anything to my regular email box at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance to anyone willing to do this.
