Scripture of the Day

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”                    KJV (Joshua 1:9)


Nurses are more
Than people in white.
They are mediators,
between human suffering
and human wellness;
Where what they do
Goes far beyond
What is seen.

E. V. Stankowski, RN

In your role as Nursing Leader
There’s a special goal you share
With the Angels in the heavens
That advances nursing care

And this goal is greatly valued
For it serves in all you do;
Every standard and procedure,
Every patient interview,

Every leadership involvement,
Every team you motivate,
Every meeting that’s conducted,
Is a place to advocate

Advocate this goal within you
That is held in high esteem
By the Angels in the heavens
And on earth -- each nursing team

For there is no greater calling
Than protecting patient care
Than ensuring patient safety
It’s your passion & your prayer

It’s a calling that aspires
To promote high quality
One that clearly ensures healing
And reduces injury

It’s this call to patient safety
That is always on your mind
That you pass along to Nurses
And in turn touches mankind

Touches every soul admitted
Every human heart in pain
With the highest nursing standards
Through the nurses that you train

So within the gates of heaven
As a tribute to your call
Hangs a stethoscope of ivory
On a gold and crystal wall

And this wall is a reflection
Of your skills of leadership
Of your role of advocating
Of Your Perfect Guardianship.

A special thank you to Joe Saladino,  RN, DON at South Oaks Hospital in NY, who taught me the meaning of superb nursing leadership and made this tribute possible.
