Summer is here! Can you believe it is already July? It seems like it was almost yesterday that we were celebrating Christmas, and now we will be celebrating July 4th in a few short days. Time flies.

The Spring Article contest is over and the top articles have been posted. Don't forget to vote on your favorites. It's now time for the 2014 Summer Article Contest, and everyone is invited to participate. Go read some of the articles from the past contest to get inspired. If that's not enough, maybe the fact that the top 4 articles will each win $150 will motivate you. The winners will be selected by the members in a poll.

In our role as nurses, we need to remember that what we do as professionals can have lasting impacts on many people....patients, families, and communities. We like to use our articles as a way for you to give us personal, inspirational, and educational glimpses into the many aspects of nursing.

The topics of your articles can encompass daily work, past experiences, education, study tips, technology, etc. You can write about anything for the contest. The following are just some suggestions:

  • The Patient Who Taught You Something
  • Changes in Nursing....for Better or Worse

  • Looking Back with Experience, Things You Would Change
  • Nursing Challenges
  • Nursing and Humor
  • Training New Doctors

Articles must be submitted between July 1st - September 30th.
