USA Change Day is Here!

USA Change Day
USA Change Day

Are you ready to fire up your passion? Unleash your creativity? Change health and healthcare?

I invite you to join me – and thousands of other people across the USA and around the world — in creating a pledge (or multiple pledges!) that will powerfully improve health and healthcare! Imagine the impact of even one pledge fulfilled! I am working with the USA Change Day Team to get 1000 pledges across America by May 1st! It would be wonderful if you could join this campaign!

What is the one change YOU will make to improve your health or the care and wellbeing of Americans? USA Change Day is a social movement to create positive and lasting change in healthcare through the power of individuals and groups of individuals.

What is it?
USA Change Day harnesses the passion, commitment, and innovation that we see every day. It uses the power of shared purpose to challenge the status quo and to try something simple yet different in order to improve health and care.

How do I do it?

1. Create a pledge today (as an individual or as a group!) at USACHANGEDAY.ORG. You can create a pledge around any change that you are willing to make that improves health and/or healthcare — anywhere, with any organization, or in your own life!!!!!NHS CHANGE DAY LOGO
2. Take action to fulfill on your pledge!
3. Share your pledge and invite at least one person in your life to make a pledge!
4. Follow @USAChangeDay on Twitter

If you have any questions, please email me to let me know. I am willing to host a Twitter chat and teleconference to address your questions and spark ideas that make a difference for you. More to come!

So, how does nursing leverage its strengths as a powerful, caring profession?

‪#‎NursesUnite‬, ‪#‎JustANurse‬ and ‪#‎ShowMeYourStethoscope‬ were a reaction by nurses and their supporters to the disparagement of the profession by uninformed celebrities on The View who still thought of nurses as bimbos and physician handmaidens.

How do you achieve these in your coaching relationship?… Continue reading Coaching Presence- A Key Competency to Gift your Client With
