Last evening’s Salon was another remarkable event. It was that interesting mix of students and faculty, young grads and seasoned staff nurses that always results in a captivating conversation.  This time it ranged from why these students chose nursing to the sense of emergence of spirituality (not religion) within practice, manifested by recognizing the importance of a nurse’s healing presence. This led to talking about the  urgency of nurses today learning how to not only perform complex care activities competently, but to also be available personally for a deeper connection with patients and families.

Attendees came from nearby neighborhoods….but also from far away.   At least two people drove over one hour each way to attend.  A DON of a rural critical access hospital comes nearly every month and feels nourished and refreshed at the close of the Salon.

The variety of reasons we come into nursing, the variety of places we work, and the variety of issues we all have makes each discussion a phenomenal learning experience.
