If you are going to boldly go where you have not gone before it's a good idea to go with someone fun AND reliable. Someone who says what they think, expects you to do the same, and doesn't get their bowels all in an uproar when things don't go just exactly right.
A person like Nancy. You've met her before. She's one of the quails. BUT what you don't know is that we have journeyed together into the world of nursing research. Our subject? Bullying in nursing. What we learned from our research and from hundreds of conversations with nurses about this topic has lit a fire under us. Enough of a fire to make us engage in some scholarly writing that has just been published.
I had Nancy sign this so when I pull it down off the shelf when I am 90 I will remember we both liked to write with colored pens. I don't know exactly where this whole research thing will take us. I do know that as 30 year veterans of the profession we are committed to doing our part to break that cycle of nurses "eating their young".
