Okay, it might be the gastro talking. But.
I know Nursing Notes likes this article, but for my taste it smacks a little too much of the nursing lit version of those damn annoying Teddy Bear Scrubs, you know, the sort of uplifting, motivational piece where it’s shown Nurses are Super! and Nursing is a Super Profession! and ever every bullet point ends in an Exclamation Mark! because, you, Nurse, are Super!
A clue: the author worked in Human Resources prior to coming over to the Dark(er) Side. I can’t help but notice our supposed “virtues” happen to coincide with a managerial vision of what nurses are meant to be, i.e. hard-working, picking up extra shifts, increasing patient load with nary a complaint, etc.
I’m feeling queasy enough.
