We are not alone on this earth. We have a responsibility to respect all life and find solutions. As caregivers, nurses are called to nurture, protect and heal. Changing climate patterns are occurring globally at unprecedented rates. Rising temperatures and sea levels, and more extreme weather significantly impact our air, water, food and our health.
As the nation's most trusted professionals, and with an understanding of how climate change impacts all areas of healthcare, nurses are in a unique position to inform and inspire others to take action … Calling all of us to care for ourselves, others and our planet, to ensure a healthy future for everyone. Margaret Mead said it best, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Nursing is the most essential, impactful and rewarding type of work. Today when I look at how nursing has evolved and how we are looked at as heroes, I ask you “what makes a hero?” In this unprecedented time the world is watching in awe of nurses as we face daily challenges. Despite being exhausted and overwhelmed we continue to have grace and a positive spirit.
Who would have thought that the “Year of the Nurse and Midwife” would have been during a pandemic and we would make history? It is a proud day to call yourself a nurse!
As nurses, we do whatever it takes every day. We are laser-focused and sometimes all we can do is hold a hand and help someone through a difficult time. Rarely does a nurse consider themselves a hero, we will never claim it; it’s just what we do.
So, I ask again, what makes a hero? To me, it is someone who cares for others without judgment or contemplation. It is someone who is graceful and yet the most ferocious advocate. A hero is someone who that despite the world watching continues to go above and beyond every day without hesitation. It is someone who is selfless and tireless, passionate, and compassionate. A hero is a nurse!
As your chapter president I am in awe of all of you and I look forward to our journey over the next two years and beyond.
