AMSN Chicago Chapter #317 - Embracing Changes Occurring in the Healthcare Field

Myia Thompson BSN, RN

“Thanks to Clara Barton, Florence Nightingale, Dr. Joseph Lister, and the Angels of Bataan; the healthcare field and more importantly nursing would not be what it is today.”

Our bi-monthly meeting sponsored by AMSN Chicago Chapter #317 and Presence Saint Joseph Hospital was held on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 with 22 nurses in attendance.

William Duffy, RN, MJ, CNOR, FAAN who is the chief nursing officer for Presence Health Lakeshore Region gave an excellent presentation encouraging and reminding nurses to embrace changes occurring in the healthcare field. He agrees that the numerous changes will make work more stressful but nurses should never run from a challenge.

Thanks to Clara Barton, Florence Nightingale, Dr. Joseph Lister, and the Angels of Bataan; the healthcare field and more importantly nursing would not be what it is today. As nurses, we must remember that change is painful, but we must remain focused, find ways to be a better nurse and not take change personally.
