Next week on Feb. 23 There will be a Salon in Albuquerque.……my hope is that someone gets them started both here and in Sante Fe and I also hope that the movement continues to grow, as it does make a difference!

In a way it reminds me of my early experience with Primary Nursing. The growth was organic. From a couple of short articles in the literature (same with salons) to years of talking about it and helping others get it started…(during which time it was unclear what the impact was) to a slow spreading throughout the profession ( including education finally) and throughout the world. Just like Salons (I hope)…Primary Nursing was also sort of ‘under the radar’ of officialdom in health care. No nursing organization ever officially endorsed the concept. No financial impact was ever recognized by the system. For years/decades, I was asked ‘how widespread is Primary Nursing throughout the country? For which I had no answer. No one ever counted up the implementations!   No national surveys were done.  Ever.  We still don’t know.

The same thing is happening with Nursing Salons… people ask me where are they happening? Sometimes we hear they are happening…  but mostly not… it is a Happening! Simply a happening.    When Salons ‘happen’ all over the country, change happens all over the country.

Funny, isn’t it?
