Nursing Notes

“There are all different levels of experience. There is also a separation of culture. Many older nurses are afraid of change. New nurses are often very willing and eager, but lack the clinical experience. There is a great opportunity for exchange of information and ideas however, nursing has largely been a culture of ‘nurses eat their young.’ It is a job trying to instill a different culture and ideology. The best managers are not managers at all. They are leaders.” 

 

Jessica Rouse, RN, Chief nursing officer, Rivendell
