2020 National Nurses Month Webinar: Magnify Your Voice—Use Storytelling to Advance Nursing (Free)
Nurses are on the front lines of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Whether it is a national health emergency or routine daily care, your vital contributions impact the health and well-being of our communities. Everything you do makes a difference and we need your stories to help others develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of what nurses do.
The World Health Organization declared 2020 as the Year of the Nurse. While the global pandemic quickly shifted our focus, this health crisis helped magnify the impact and value of nurses. This is why the stories you and your colleagues share about your work, particularly during this pandemic, will shape your history and ours. Join Carolyn Jones, noted master storyteller and photographic ethnographer, as she celebrates nurses and discusses techniques on how to share your story. During this 60-minute webinar, you will discover how to construct a narrative that:
- Communicates the motivations that led you to become and stay a nurse
- Connects the impact and value your nursing practice has on your patients, colleagues, and community
- Shares how you overcome the challenges nurses face everyday
You can use these techniques in a variety of settings from explaining the contributions of your work as a nurse to government officials, your community, or sharing with a friend as part of the healing process.
When more of us tell our stories, we work together to raise the awareness and value of nurses everywhere. You make a difference!
