Nurse Tribe!

Last weeks post I discussed my nursing why and RNblueprint why, hopefully it sparked reflection on your why! In the post I shared one way in which I maintain my nursing why i.e. my nursing scrapbook. It’s a tangible collection of a few of my greatest moments during my nursing journey. Being unique individuals, how everyone remembers and maintains their nursing why will vary. However, the most valuable component to staying resilient in the nursing profession is from support!

Why Nurse Tribe?

In the modern age of coining new terms or reinventing old terms. I prefer nurse tribe as defined by Merriam-Webster than nurse circle or inner circle. A circle is very exclusive. And in a profession where team work and collaboration is a necessity, being welcoming and inclusive only leads to better patient outcomes!

For all the practicing nurses reading this…we wouldn’t have survived nursing school without the support of key individuals in our lives at the time! From classmates, a professor or professors, significant other, spouse, family members, friends, babysitter, and employer for those who worked full-time, part-time, or PRN! For any nursing students reading this post you will survive!!! We’ve all survived. As one of my favorite podcast host says, “it’s a season of sacrifice!” Was it easy? Absolute not! Life will not always be easy. However, knowing you have support and will be supported is how you’ll persevere not only in school, but in practice. And with this mindset, our profession will see more civility rather than incivility.

Keep in mind the relationship with your support extends beyond nursing school! We’ll always require the support from our families, but as you engage into the profession and discover your niche or search for your niche networking and mentorship enhance your nursing experience as additional support! In nursing we learn to practice in a state of readiness from learning the entire scope of nursing, BLS, PALS, ACLS preparation, fire evacuation, TJC or any regulatory body visit (planned or unplanned), etc. We anticipate the needs of our patients and our providers. Extend this notation into your personal professional growth especially in regards to networking and mentorship.

  • Update your resume yearly and/or with each position change. 
  • Create a CV (curriculum vitae) and keep updated as above. Side note and full disclosure, until recently I undervalued the benefits of a CV and avoided even creating one until about two weeks ago from this post.
  • Have business cards! Business cards are an excellent and convenient way to connect with other nurses at conferences, workshops, professional organization meetings, etc.                
  • Stay LinkedIn! LinkedIn in the number one social media for business professionals. And highly utilized by talent and acquisition representatives!

I’m so thankful for my personal nursing tribe (pictured throughout this post) for the ongoing and consistent support they provide and offer! Thank you for letting me include you TDJ, SB, HK, & AT on this post!! Love you ladies and the rest of my nurse tribe!
