Last night, nurses from around the country and Canada gathered at Marie’s house to discuss nursing.  They shared their frustrations, fears, joys and tears.  They unleashed their demons and revealed their angels.  They released the pains of old stories, and they uncovered the joys of past moments. They spoke of self-care, how to do it, when to do it, how to remember it, and when to honor it.  They shared little tips and encouraged each other. They spoke of the waves they ride throughout their lives and their careers, the highs and lows, and the ease and the difficulty of hitting their strides.  Through all of this conversation and sharing, it became clear that they were all participating in self-care.  They were supporting each other.  They were remembering that each and every nurse is part of a chain of wise, compassionate and skillful people who care for others in every moment of their lives, on and off the clock.  They learned that one of the best ways to implement self-care is to remember that in the most tense, intimate and vulnerable moments in the day in the life of a nurse, they are surrounded and supported by all of the other nurses all over the world standing in the very same place.

Note from Marie: this was written by a nurse who attended.  The salon was incredible — we all learned so much. My personal thanks to all who attended.

The holder of the Marie Manthey Professorship will:
•Model entrepreneurial thinking as a way to advance professional nursing and nursing practices
•Promote leadership and management skills for faculty and student enrichment
•Engage faculty and students in development of creative, vibrant ideas with action strategies
•Support scholarship and innovation for integrated healthcare programs led by nurses

Marie Manthey’s Impact on Nursing
Forty years ago, Marie Manthey introduced the care delivery model of Primary Nursing to the University of Minnesota hospitals. Today she continues to develop strategies and communication forums to discuss the voice of nursing and how to make that voice better heard. Marie believes the foundation of professional practice is rooted in relationships. Her love of nursing dates back to a lengthy childhood hospitalization and the caring she felt from her nurse. This encounter influenced a lifelong commitment to help those who feel vulnerable experience that same caring feeling.

Marie’s journey included roles ranging from staff nurse to Vice President of Patient Services. Her work provided evidence that workplace culture profoundly impacts the lives of both those who receive and provide care, and helped her understand the exquisite privilege of developing a trusting bond with patients and colleagues. Marie’s entrepreneurial spirit led her to develop Creative Healthcare Management, an international consulting group that designs and implements Relationship Based Care models to focus on leadership skills and patient care delivery. Marie envisions innovative leadership as the powerful energy that will lead nursing practice and knowledge development in the 21st Century.
