Nursing Week story collection
For the sixth consecutive year, RNAO members have graciously shared their stories for publication on this Nursing Week website. We asked you to lighten the mood this year with some of your funniest nursing moments. And you’ve delivered.
We already know your practice is full of profound and touching experiences every day, but you have now shown just how humour creeps into your work, whether you ask for it or not. As they say, laughter is sometimes the only way to make it through stressful moments that would otherwise bring you to your knees.
We hope you enjoy this small collection of stories online. And we hope that reading them will inspire you to share details of an instance, a conversation, a response or action from a patient that still brings a smile to your face, even if it happened many years ago.
Submissions are still being considered for the summer issue of Registered Nurse Journal. Send us your story by June 7 and you could be published in the magazine. Please email editor@RNAO.ca or call 1-800-268-7199, ext. 233 for more information.
