Since Last We Spoke, National Nurses Week 2019 Edition

A happy National Nurses Week this week! Here’s hoping you are feeling the love wherever you are working this week–I will have the good fortunate of spending part of it with my friends and colleagues in New York where I will be collaborating on a testimony workshop with members of the NY State IAFN chapter. Seriously looking forward to that trip.
