With so many nurses in the country, you might think that nurses’ voices would be heard loud and clear. But it’s not always easy to speak up on issues, even those issues that are particularly close to your beliefs or those that can have a direct impact on your job. How can you be an advocate in nursing?

If you’ve ever felt frustrated by a work issue, a professional problem, or anything related to nursing, you can bet you’re not the only nurse who has felt that way. And all those day-to-day frustrations are often related to larger issues going on in the nation – health care reform, nursing shortages, and even interdisciplinary communication. You can address some of the problems with your organization, but when numbers of nurses get together to say change needs to happen, that’s when transformation begins.
