Nurses and Innovation

Nurses are among the most creative people I know. Most nurses can come up with a solution to any problem they face.

Since their minds are wired to problem solve, it’s no miracle they can be very creative.
Nurses have created sophisticated wound management systems, special sponges to clean wounds, stethoscopes, written books, made creams and so much more.
Who said nursing was only about patient care?

  1. Thanks for the blog post Joyce. I know there are other nurses out there who would like to promote the profession of nursing to their children. Finally, there is a choice for a positive nurse role model for kids.
